Written and recorded over the last twelve months, 'A Good Land, An Excellent Land' began life as a collection of short piano melodies which gradually developed into fully fledged pieces incorporating string parts and guitar soundscapes. Evolving the sound established in the EP 'What We Dream Of...' released earlier this year, 'A Good Land...' is the Joel's debut album; in some ways auto-biographical, it describes the notion of laying hold of and realising hearts desires, of finding 'home' both geographically and spiritually, and all the emotions that come with this, high & low.
The thick humming resonance of the cello is used to subtly lead and describe the mood of some of the pieces whilst many an hour was spent trying to create the right guitar sound, involving late-night rewiring of amps and fiddling with pedals until the sound fitted. This restless, uncompromising approach has lead Joel to craft a wonderfully intimate and rich depth of sound; the result is a stunning debut album, coherent in its structure and tone, disarming in its beauty.
