Elemental is dedicated to the natural elements of the world being earth, wind, fire & water and much of the album was conceived and drafted in a rather idyllic setting overlooking trees and water from up on a (small) mountain. In the comfort of a house - I'm not totally crazy!
The album is a mixture of instrumental and vocal pieces, no narration this time, there's no real story to tell here aside from the reflective nature of the music. Each of the elements gets three songs with at least one vocal song in that group. Within that bracket of three the music explores various inspirations on that element.
I always like to try something out of my comfort zone, last time it was a folk song, this one has a song sung in Hindi and that was amazing to do.
As I've discovered over the journey of three albums I find I can conceive and deliver one over the course of about 6 months, which still leaves me time for other things.
