TRACK FROM UPCOMING RHYS MARSH ALBUM REVEALED

With just over two weeks to go to  the 22nd February release of “October After All”,  the third full-length album from singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer RHYS MARSH, Karisma Records have today released a track from the album.

 The track, “Golden Lullabies”, can be streamed or downloaded at the following:

“October After All” once again sees  RHYS handling most of the instrumental  and vocal duties, but the album also features contributions from Anders Bjermeland, Tale Vang Ellefsen, Kåre Kolve, Roar Øien and Arve Henriksen, as well as vocals from the likes of, Silje Leirvik, Anders Bjermeland, Rohey Taalah, Ole Kristian Malmedal, Vilde Aakre Lie, Tale Vang Ellefsen, Arve Henriksen and Tim Bowness.

The end result is a beautiful, atmospheric, prog album that features both alternative rock and jazz elements and about which Rhys recently had this to say: 

I try to approach every album from a different angle, to give it its own identity. When I was writing this album, I was very inspired by music from the mid- to late-seventies, especially songs that had string synthesizers in place of Mellotrons. And of course, the drum sounds from that era, which I absolutely love. These songs were all written after I got married and our son was born, so for the first time, on any album really, I let the songs be reflections of specific events.

“October After All” was produced by Rhys Marsh and recorded & mixed by Marsh at the Autumnsongs Recording Studio in Trondheim, with additional recording by Roar Øien at Tyrirot Studio, Tim Bowness at the Hidden Art Studios, and  Arve Henriksen at the Arve Music Studio. 

Tracklisting for “October After All” is as follows:

  1. River
  2. Long Way Back
  3. Golden Lullabies
  4. Ride The New Wave
  5. The Butterflies
  6. Let It Be Known!
  7. One Hundred Memories
  8. The Summer Days
  9. ‘22’
  10. (It Will Be) October After All

“October After All” will be available in CD, Digital and Vinyl formats.  The CD and Vinyl formats will include a link to 12 downloadable bonus tracks and can now be pre-ordered from the following:
