RM Hubbert Telling The Trees on LP
The extraordinary, tattoo-bedecked, flamenco-inspired guitarist – and dare we say profane raconteur – RM Hubbert has returned with a new album, Telling the Trees and it's every bit as bold, unpredictable and affecting as we could have dared expect.
A reprisal of the collaborative format that so enriched 2012's SAY Award winning Thirteen Lost & Found, this new project finds Hubby co-writing at arm's-length from a dazzling array of musicians, songwriters and lyricists in stark contrast to the previous album's up close and personal approach.
Enlisting an amazingly diverse ensemble of talent, Telling the Trees features: Anneliese Mackintosh, Anneke Kampman, Rachel Grimes, Kathryn Williams, Marnie, Kathryn Joseph, Martha Ffion, Sarah J. Stanley, Aby Vulliamy, Karine Polwart and Eleanor Friedberger.
The result is a mesmerizing collection of styles, songs and instrumentals, linked by their infusion of Hubby's trademark guitar playing and the sparkling production techniques of Paul Savage at Chem19.
