The carousel of birth and death, seen through the eyes of a child, and the challenge of love in a time of breaking: these are the themes of Rupert Wates’s latest CD. Recorded in a single evening, with no overdubs, and featuring only Wates’ voice and his guitar, the album captures the organic quality of a solo live performance. Its twelve songs showcase the full flowering of a master songwriter at the peak of his powers.
"...A masterpiece...The music is exquisite. His guitar work is breathtaking, but never overwrought. His vocals are resonant and heartfelt. His songs are so well crafted, each one is a jewel" (Anne Sandstrom, songwriter)
