Singer/songwriter and visual artist Brad Walsh made a name for himself doing label remixes that charted in the early aughts and then started writing, recording and producing his own work. This is his sixth full length album of original material.
His new record is composed entirely of vocal layers and body sounds. No instruments, no lyrics. All songs written, composed, produced, recorded and mixed by Brad Walsh except “Boadicea” which is written & composed by Enya and “Cellophane” which is written & composed by Sia Furler.
