“These first recordings of music by the English percussionist and composer Brian Wilshere focus retrospectively on his work for ensemble and chamber orchestra.

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!”
