alister atkin In Time... (CD, £12.95)
This is the debut album by UK based Singer/Songwriter/Guitar Maker Alister Atkin. Intimate, hook-laden, folk-pop balladry. The artists who already know exactly who Alister Atkin is reads like a Who’s Who of the music scene: Richard Hawley, Elbow, Kate Walsh, Ronan Keating, Graham Coxon… They all know Alister as the master craftsman who hand built their beautiful guitars. That Alister’s famous Atkin Guitars stem from a love of the music they create is no surprise, but that Alister is himself a musician and performer has been a well-kept secret to date. Now with the help of multi instrumentalist Geoffrey Richardson (Caravan, Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Paul Brady) and producer, Lee Russell (Paul Carrack, Kate Walsh, Ezio) Atkin has recorded his Debut Album 'In Time...' 'In Time..' includes contributions from Kathryn Williams, Chris Difford (Squeeze), BBC Folk Award winners Brendan Power and Tim Edey. Difford and Richardson also contributed the co-written track ‘The Power Of Now’. ‘In Time…’ is otherwise written entirely by Atkin, and features ten songs of transatlantic love and loss, generations gone by and more, creating a soundscape around them which is led by his beautifully subtle guitar work, across a warm swell of strings, accordian and piano.
