Before twilight turns to night

‘Before Twilight turns to Night’ was recorded, mixed and mastered by Kamal Engels in the Art of Audio studio, Mullumbimby, with a stellar cast: Thierry Fossemalle, double bass; Dave Sanders, drums; Tunji Beier, drums & tavil; Rick Fenn, guitar and vocals; Thomas Veitch, cello; Andrew Clermont, violin, mandolin and banjo; Kamal Engels, fretless bass; Leigh Carriage and Parissa Bouas, vocals.

‘What an absolute treat it is. So rich with poetry, wisdom and beauty. A timeless and classic piece of art - very refined - complexity made effortless - in the same league and world as Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash and Serge Gainsbourg but like all of them- truly unique. This is the real cool - the stuff the rest of us strive for - honest, sincere, laugh out loud funny, touching, heartfelt, true, wise, poetic and beautiful.
Andy Jans-Brown – film maker and recording artist
