about

Songs of haunting power and emotion. Warmth, wistfulness, humour, love, the isolation of modern life and the strength of the individual are all explored here.

"intelligently constructed songs, shimmering with musical colour, rich vocal harmonies and stunning instrumental work" - Songbook Magazine

Christo had started work on an album of space songs with the Filk community in mind - however other songs came up that didn't fit that remit. This album grew in parallel with the space one - Alien Salad Abduction. Some songs jumped albums from one to another due to feel. In the end the 2 albums were completed in the same week, 2 years after they were begun.

influences - Alan Stivell, John Sebastian, Paul Kantner, George Harrison, David Crosby, Byrds, Jimmy Buffett, Lisa Stansfield, Jesse Colin Young, Flora Purim, Dan Britton, Vikki Clayton
