My performance work is usually based in some way around guitar. From the intricate guitar duets on Andalusian Sketches and with Fight and Flight to the haunting songs of Mercury Sea with powerful and soulful vocals.
The largest scale project of Pagan Harvest has involved me in keyboard and percussion work to create huge orchestral soundscapes. The album Sacred River received many favourable reviews.
“Sacred River draws on the rich banks of lore around the River Thames… it’s a thoughtful album that’s dramatic, atmospheric and deftly performed… this is interesting, clear-eyed prog from a band who deserve to reap what they’ve sown.” Grant Moon – Prog Magazine
“Pagan Harvest pull together a myriad of musical styles taking the listener off in different directions from folk to dark progressive moments all the way through to the underlying classical influences. So if you fancy a hybrid of dark folk, classical and progressive rock then it will be well worth entering the world of Pagan Harvest.” Andrew Manning – Midlands Rocks
“Really good and love the bass. Clever stuff!” Dave Pegg (Fairport Convention/Jethro Tull)
“Pagan Harvest's members lend their respective styles - classical, folk and prog - to the band's inventive greater whole. The result is polarising… you have to applaud their desire to deliver something so leftfield.” Jerry Ewing – Editor Prog Magazine
“Pagan Harvest delivered a superb album in their debut work. The story-telling over intricate soundscapes will captivate audiences, keeping them hooked from start to finish.” Doug Bearne – National Rock Review
