about

Isle of Mists started life as a pair of songs- I had intended to write an Anglo-Saxon themed concept album for some time, and sketched out the basic story as well as coming up with an intro and an outro for the album. However, I was never really satisfied with the idea, so eventually I let it drop- but decided that the two songs I'd already written could be combined together to create a nice acoustic interlude song for this album. Thematically, the song is supposed to evoke a vision of the isle of Avalon (the mythical island where King Arthur's sword Excalibur was forged) but also of our own island nation and the tides that crash against her shores.
