SUMIC_new paeans_album cover web image_lo res

New Paeans (2019)

An album that felt like it took forever to make, but was definitely worth it in the end!
I feel it builds and expands upon ‘Rekindled’, whilst also breaking new ground. Epic, melodic, pastoral, progressive folk music.

VCS_Troglodytes album cover_lo res

Troglodytes Troglodytes (2017)

A second E.P. of improvised music, following on from the previous ‘Jupiter Wrens’.
A more melodic follow-up, although it’s still pretty intense stuff.

Jupiter Wrens (2016)

A download-only ‘EP’ of completely improvised music. Although it is quite different from the mostly folky, acoustic based pieces that I do, this is still very much a SUMIC release, with some signature guitar playing, just in a different context.

Rekindled (2016)

‘Rekindled’ is an album I’m very proud of. From short, folky pieces like the opening ‘The Hall of the Bright Carvings’ and ‘Starlight’, through the upbeat and slightly funky ‘News just in’, to the message of positivity in the title track and the epic ambience of the closing ‘Norham Castle Sunrise’, it is adventurous yet very accessible music.

‘(all things) bleak and beautiful’ (2014)

Although technically this is my fourth album, in reality it’s my first, as it’s the first album that I felt was sufficiently good to let people hear. It’s an album of two halves, with the first half devoted to shorter pieces such as the upbeat, folky ‘The High Hoose’, the lamenting ‘Pause, to reflect’ and the two-part ‘Shapes’. The second half of the album is the longest piece I’ve written to date, the epic ‘The Triumph of Time’ – 24 minutes of ambient folk and rock music with narration, telling the story depicted in an engraving by Flemish artist Pieter Bruegel.
