about

‘Some Other Land’ refers to a different place. The place of dreams. Another realm, perhaps. Our own personal wilderness in which all of us roam each night. The place that dreams occur, thoughts collide and perhaps new ideas begin.

The bulk of these melodies have come to me during my sleep, in a surprising new and regular occurrence in my musical journey. It happens during R.E.M, (rapid eye movement) when I’m nearly awake, and dreaming vividly. Each time, it’s a different scene, different characters and a new wisp of fragrant melody blowing in. If I manage to first of all realise that I’m dreaming and then successfully wake myself up, I then find myself sitting in my Y fronts playing the tune on the fiddle at 3:46 AM or some other ungodly hour. My poor girlfriend.

And so the common thread of this album has turned out to be music that has simply arrived, unbidden in my sleep. I don’t feel like I would ever have written tunes quite like these in my waking life, hence the need to describe the source as being from elsewhere, from out there, from some other land.
