Musically ‘Lighthouse’ is a rich and eclectic album, with echoes of classical music, the Canterbury scene, northern folk, jazz and electronic sounds.
Released in April 2016 by Kscope Records ‘Lighthouse’ is a story of the progression of mental illness and the stages that the central character goes through.
“This album is dedicated to the subject of mental illness and we’d like to pass on the message to all the lost souls out there; you are not alone, ever” Lighthouse sleeve-notes.
