Skylark And The Scorpion

Weather The Storm

£19.99

Weather The Storm is a record of majestic folk beauty from the recording/writing partnership of Nick J Webb (The Lea Shores / Nadine Shah) and vocalist Petra Jean Phillipson (David Holmes / Martina Topley Bird / Marianne Faithful). From the haunting haze of strings to the melodiously plucked harp, then the ethereal female voice that soars like a siren call, beseeching a lover to stay, Skylark & The Scorpion simultaneously tug at the heartstrings and nourish the soul. Their sweeping soundscapes swell, soothe and seduce like the titular lovers. Destined to be together forever, but fated to be separated ‘til eternity, their tale of doomed romance is the stuff of classical tragedy. Contributions come from ambient music composer Roger Eno (brother of Brian, who added  piano and accordion to the mix) and orchestral arranger Nell Catchpole (on violin/viola), with additional contributions from Tim Harries (double bass), Jamie Spencer Smith (guitars),
Fontane Liang (harp) and Nick Foot (percussion). Producer / songwriter Webb, who also plays the cornet, then completed the album by adding brass arrange- ments, before sending the results to celebrated producer Ben Hillier for mixing.
