about

A songwriting tour de force.

Some of Chris Conway's most powerful songs. Storming has a gutsy, dark and Celtic feel to it.

"… on an enjoyable and accomplished album "Storming", he purveys a lilting and melodic music of depth and emotion" - Time Out Magazine

In the early to mid 90s Chris was in a band The Storm Thieves - something of a Crosby Stills & Nash with Celtic touches. They recorded a number of cassette albums.

In 1995 The Storm Thieves had recorded half an album (released only recently as "Long Time") when Christo fell ill with exhaustion after a German and UK tour. By the time he had recovered things had moved on and it looked as if the Thieves tracks would just lie around forever.

CC took his tracks and combined them with tracks of his from Storm Thieves cassette albums plus a couple of other tracks he had in the can from elsewhere.

The idea was twofold - one, to tie up the whole of his Storm Thieves experiences and material together and, two, to present a more forceful darker side of his songwriting. The previous Flying Home was a mellow album and he felt he needed a stronger image and sound. Also after his illness, he had been thru dark times as well, so the dark album felt appropriate to the times
