Longtime favourite Sid Hagan collaborates extensively with an equally gifted Marvin Taylor, for this beautiful, purposeful new EP of timeless originals Swamp Thang.
Once again, Sid Hagan and friends excel themselves. Poetic, powerful, all-consuming – the kind of song that begs for you to just drive and drive as the music rains down. Beautiful, heartbreaking, genuine.
Perhaps now more than ever is a great time to reconsider and recount our blessings.
Beautifully seductive verses pave the way alongside subtle yet satisfying guitar work, and always there’s this impressive, genuine core of intention & integrity to the writing & performance style.
Forever one to paint a clear and organic, beautifully compelling picture, Sid Hagan’s When We Forget tells a surprisingly poignant story.
Forever at the forefront of heartfelt, musically immersive yet organic songwriting, Sid Hagan joins forces with the highly experienced and long-time friend of his, Marvin Taylor, for an upcoming album of originals.
Life is never what anyone simply expects it to be, but there is so much value and connection found in memories – even those we previously thought of as difficult or unwanted.
“You succumb to the unknown, and by all accounts – that’s exactly what Sid intended to portray. A haunting and fairly unforgettable account of our world and the human experience.”
The gradual instrumental build-up supports yet another of Sid’s simple yet stunning melody lines, the whole thing designed to slowly but surely envelop and engage you, creating a series of moments that increasingly lift you up and remind you to be thankful for every day you get to spend with those you treasure.
A stunning song – musically brilliant, gorgeously performed, and recorded so as to genuinely present a particularly poignant moment of realness; captured at its most compelling. I sincerely look forward to the new album.
It can be heartbreaking when an audience doesn’t get what you’re trying to do. Most professionals have to learn to become uncaring to a point to continue performing live as almost all live performances are ‘without a net’, so to speak.
The instrumentation is brilliant, a live show would fill the room with peaceful energy & flawlessly skinful musicianship – with just a touch of electronic experimentation to keep a certain thread of alternative energy alive.
