When your whole world is shattered by the horrors of your country being invaded and you are forced to flee from your home, spending several long weeks traveling across your country only to find, soon after settling there, that it was not the sanctuary you prayed for. Very little outside the safety of your loved ones and yourself matters during those long painful days and nights. Music can help keep the soul alive and with Anthony this was very much the case during the many conversations we had of music past, present and of the future was chewed over.
One CD in particular was proving very popular with our Caerllysi customers, which musically lit a flame that burned brightly for both of us. Antony’s pre “The Water” days is a vast Aladdin’s cave of delicious melodic pieces that, when revisited, we both felt had the sound foundations would make great music for 2022.
Antony, with time weighing heavily, trapped in a sort of groundhog day existence, duly sorted out the tracks he would use for the album from these vaults and asked his great friend Max Velychko to play guitar on the album, he would add additional keyboards plus other sounds and expand musically, where required, plus mix and master using his production skills to look to create a dynamic uplifting melodic instrumental album fit for today’s listener.
From the moment we heard the demo of the opening section to the title track we both knew it was an amazing musical success and exactly what the doctor ordered to lift our spirits and carry on his fight for freedom and to live again in peace.
The second disc the “Land of Green” bonus disk has been incredibly popular and available for some time now digitally. We have always assured folk that, when the time allowed, it we would make it available on disc as well for the multitude out there. As always we keep our promises to you, our faithful supporters, and hope that long may that relationship prosper and grow.
Antony and his family are now safely in Poland for the time being so share his happiness via his music hope you enjoy lots of love and peace.
