What is 'FOLIAGE'?
This is a 4 track EP in which I've stepped out from my usual acoustic guitar/vocals format to arrange and produce the songs for a larger group, including drums and bass, electric guitars, piano, percussion, backing vocals, a brass trio a string quartet... For this occasion I wished to bring to life all the sound colours and textures I had in my mind.
Take a listen to the same song bit in acoustic and 'foliage' version, so that you can have an idea:

That's why the EP is called ‘Foliage’.This is also illustrated on cover, which is a painting by the artist Toby Rainbird-Webb created specifically for this project.
To make honoer of the bright and colourful character of the record, we're going to officially release it on March the 20th,celebrating the Spring Equinox.
