Martin Smith, violin.
Andrew Skrimshire, cello.
Alan Brown, piano.
Fine Arts Sinfonia
Michael Nebe, director.

“These first recordings of music by the English percussionist and composer Brian Wilshere focus retrospectively on his work for ensemble and chamber orchestra. Although he describes his music in formal terms … it is feeling, sentiment and an outpouring of often luminous melody that become the character of his work … addictive.”

Laurence Vittes, Gramophone

LR01 Richard Lewis: Untitled

” … a small marvel, full of hidden treasures” — Indiepoprock
UNTITLED COVER ART SQ
“Pick of the month … is Englishman Richard Lewis, exiled in France for five years. Classically trained and by turns jazz drummer, folk guitarist and composer of scores, [he] has created a perfect synthesis of his various influences and experiences. His new album, “Untitled” is a small marvel, full of hidden treasures, for which he summons not only flighty bursts of avant garde piano and folky guitar picking but also organ, accordion and banjo. The talent and technical prowess of this top-level musician are placed beyond doubt:

LR04 Richard Lewis: { you are here }

“Compositions of unbearable talent” — Zicazic
you are here art pochette
Third album from acclaimed songwriter and score composer Richard Lewis. A fixture on the Paris live circuit, Lewis effortlessly blends a range of influences from jazz, avant-rock and ambient to folk and electronica over ten captivating and atmospheric tracks. Seductive, assured and laid back, You Are Here is his most coherent and fully-realised work to date.

“In a whirlwind of creativity, instruments as diverse as flugelhorn, flute, violin, double bass and banjo, along with spikes of electronica and tribal percussion, all mix with a certain spontaneity, but no less ingenuity. This third personal album brings elegance and audacity together with sheer class to produce ten original pieces, in which the voice is more than just a supplement to compositions of unbearable talent!”

LR02 Richard Lewis: Postcard

“A universe worth discovering.” — POPnews
POSTCARD COVER SMALLER LR02
“RICHARD LEWIS, an English writer, video director and musician who lives in Paris, shows a particularly touching sensibility in the words that he chooses, the images that he uses and the music that he creates. Richard’s world is a personal one, often nostalgic, and similar in a way to those of YANN TIERSEN, TINDERSTICKS and DAVID SYLVIAN. There is sincerity in everything he does.”
