Awake is the collaborative effort of Stuart E. Francis of The Charging Bliss Project and experimental singer-songwriter Robyn-Astrid of Robyn-Astrid & the River Calling.
Awake describes the feeling of 'waking up' in all senses of the phrase: it guides the listener through a process of realisation and self-discovery as the persona looks further and further afield, physically blinking in the sunshine. With striking instrumental melodies and vulnerable spoken word atop many-layered ambience, Awake questions both life itself and the possibility of transcendence.
The second track on the album 'Closer To The Spring' has already recieved BBC praise and radio airplay, so we're really excited by the response from the new album.
With influences from such artists as Moby, Massive Attack, Air, Morcheeba and even snippets of Pink Floyd's soundscapes, you won't know what to expect next on this musical journey.
