Signals are Ben Guy and Darran Hurst plus an ensemble cast who helped illuminate ‘Stories To Tell’.
From a friendship that endured the distance and differences between lives Signals formed, naturally occurring, on and off……maybe it had to take this long to surface for us to write the album of our lives?
'Stories To Tell' started life as a drunken conversation on New Year’s Eve 2010 when in the clichéd anticipation of the year ahead an idea was hatched to work on some piano canvasses quietly and without agenda under the premise that they would likely never see the light of day. However in the stark and sober light of a brand new year we awoke to find this half arsed yet giddy proposal had taken hold and over the months ahead bore witness to it’s shift as the sketches ever so slowly came into focus to form 'Stories To Tell'.
Such has the strength of feeling grown about Signals & ‘Stories To Tell’ that we are taking to social networks to campaign it's cause. Influenced by our love of The White Album-era Beatles, Ludovico Einaudi, Polly Jean Harvey and Billie Holliday the lush, layered songs of 'Stories To Tell' demand to be heard with as far reaching consequences as possible.
.......and this is where you come in.
In order that this builds we’re asking that those of you who like what you hear/see invest in us by sharing our efforts with like minded folk. Over the weeks & months ahead we will drip feed a series of direct-to-fan content including some “tokens of appreciation” that will leave a trail of musical breadcrumbs to follow & share. This will eventually culminate in the early 2013 release of 'Stories To Tell', an album of piano led torch songs that was written, recorded and is reflective of a 2 year period that touched upon the drama’s of birth, death, LOVE (bold & in CAPS of course), redundancy, hope and good ol’ hissy fits!
Thanks for your support, we hope you will find something to keep and share
