‘Electric-Notes Wild' released on the band's own Storm Cloud Agency Records is a collection of 10 songs showcasing Drew Morrison and his love of song. A questing musical soul, Morrison has described his music as being for ‘the lonesome fugitive within us all’.
In Darkwood he is backed by a band consisting of Phil Carwardine (guitars), Martin Murray (guitars & singing), Mike Hughes (bass & singing) and Nick Steyn (drums). Despite lineup changes along the road, the band's central vision of a music touched by influences ranging from Alt Country, Pop, & Rock N' Roll all tinged with 'golden chording' has remained focussed and has realised itself into a unique sound.
The album was recorded at Bonafide, Reservoir and Project-a-Sonic studios. Engineered by Brian Bogdanovic and mastered by Ian Button.
Guest musicians included Tim Pearson on keyboards, Henry Senior on pedal steel and Mr Mandolin Man Steve Benaim.
'Electric-Notes Wild' is a set of songs born from innocence, experience and ultimately the faith in the powers of music to still entertain and thrill.
It will be officially released on the 7th of September, 2018.
