A MASSIVE thank you to all of you who have already purchased the album - the support has been overwhelming, thank you!

It’s taken the whole of the autumn to record and produce the new album.  That’s 379 cups of tea and 1022 biscuits.... but I’m delighted to finally share the new pieces with you.

After much deliberation I decided to record at home in Box, Wiltshire.  This allowed me the time necessary to produce the material in a relaxed environment.  I also wanted the feel of home to enter into the recording -  you may occasionally hear the sound of birdsong and the rustle of wind in the trees.

The album was written over the last three years, during which time I’ve moved house three times and spend half a year living in a campervan.  Having finally settled down, at least for now, this transition has become part of Close to Home’s narrative.

In 2013, I returned to Ladakh, and this jouney, particularly to the remote monastery called Lamayuru, has left a powerful impression on me and has once again entered the music. 

Thank you so much to all of you for your unending support, encouragement and inspiration over the past few years since Preliminaries.  I really hope you enjoy Close to Home.

Peace, Ben
