“On this record Michael Watts sings with a human voice through the guitar. I have not heard a guitar sound more beautiful than this”
— Michael Chapdelaine
Vetiver is my debut album. Released in 2017 it features 9 tracks of solo steel string guitar and 1 track of solo ukulele.
Several years in the making, Vetiver was written in several different countries including Greece, France, The USA, Canada and Brighton.
I used my Kostal Modifed Dreadnought on the first 8 tracks. Misirlou was played on a Martin Davy Graham signature model and Ukulele Nocturne was played on a Hive Ukuleles Hornet model made by Jake Maclay.
The album was produced and mastered by Mark Pavey of Les Cousins Music, the main image was painted by Alana Tyson and the artwork is by Johnson Banks of London.
I hope you enjoy this record. Please remember that I am a fully independent artist and your support is much appreciated.
