about

"From out of woods, over lakes and hills, and into the early morning streets where you walked, emerged a mist of beautiful sadness...".
Four years after his debut release comes 'The Spirit Of Elegy', an album of ten new compositions, written, performed and produced by Sonny and recorded in London over the period of a year.
A departure from the electronic and eastern-tinged aspects of the first album 'Twilight-World Music', 'The Spirit Of Elegy' finds Sonny retreating into the rich soil of English Romanticism, which was touched upon in certain songs on the former album, but now embraced fully with the lush orchestral Gothicism of songs such as 'Earth And Dust' and 'The Affliction Of Childhood'; the cathedral splendour of 'Anthem For Radiant Trees' and the delicate 'The Body Attains The End Which Comes To Us All'.
The swirling and majestic 'Lighthouses For The Desolate', 'Frost Fair' and 'Rhapsody', recall the heady sounds of Cocteau Twins or Sigur Ros, whilst the title song evokes an emotive sadness which is beautifully heartbreaking.
This is an album of painstakingly crafted and exquisitely sorrowful songs, that the listener will want to treasure. Take solace...
