Out of the Trees

‘Out of the Trees’ album – 16th October 2020

The 2020 lockdown forced a break from shouting to be heard above the Cornish rugby songs, rambling wedding speeches and naked stage invasions, allowing Julian to focus on writing and recording a set of introspective songs dealing in love and loss, revealing layers of musical and lyrical sophistication previously unknown to all but the keenest of followers of his 30 year career.   Recorded with erstwhile Ragged Trousered Philanthropists Thomas Sharpe (upright bass) and Cally Gibson (violin, viola), the resulting album ‘Out of the Trees’ is a distilled personal vision of what a 21st century middle-aged-singer-songwriter album could sound like, mixing some tasty classic folk-rock influences with complex and awkward ideas from traditional European music and jazz.

Available digitally from 16th October 2020.
