Describe Chris Conway... - songwriter, multi-instrumental wizard, soulful singer, wit, space hippy, genre juggler, composer, producer - all of these and more as you'll discover on his new album My Mind's Island.
My Mind's Island is a superb collection of songs. Though roots based, it covers quite a range, the songs focus on themes of individuality, and humanity and subtle emotions.
The album features his Talking Fish band and many special guests, including Canadian singer Jodi Krangle from the band Urban Tapestry and folk-rock diva Vikki Clayton.
US born Conway plays 10 instruments himself and weaves them with the other players, to make a masterpiece which stylistically touches on Celtic folk, US West Coast, jazz, Latin, acoustic, funky, and ambient realms.
However despite the diversity in styles and approach, Chris Conway never loses sight of the songs and their lyrics which are perhaps the jewel in the crown of the album.
Evident throughout is a warmth, and a dedication to detail, and the sheer mastery of a truly creative individual.
