Background to "The Calm Before the Scorn"

This album is the home of songs that are driven by electric guitar and keyboard - so is a companion to the Blindsight 2020 album. 

I was working on these songs at the same time as the country flavoured Follow the Sun, which allowed me to experiment with different sounds and move some of the songs around until they found their rightful home.

The album title surfaced from the track Arms of War, and reflects the strangeness of quiet moments experienced, amongst a number of significant life changing moments in our family.
