Island Sublime
Songs from Across a Seven Mile Sea

13. Whistling WInd - BONUS TRACK w/ CD & full download.

CD contains a full-color 12-page booklet with lyrics, liner notes, and stories from the album's production.
Thanks to the generosity of a host of Kickstarter crowdfunders, and to that of many other friends, musicians, and technical professionals that joined in creating it, Alex de Steiguer is pleased to announce the release of her first album of original songs written on the Isles of Shoals. Whether composed in the quiet of a still winter night, during a fresh dawn slowly lighting lonely seascapes or as a winter tempest rages outside, you'll find in this collection warm longing, amused musings, and songs of devotion and delight played by some of the area's best loved local musicians.

Alex's book is available once again... With sixty-nine stirring black and white photographs that give voice to this rugged setting, her stories and reflections tell of how she learned to live in a very small place. Even while embracing solitude, she learned to value the connections between herself and the wider world. In Small Island, Big Picture, Alex shares with us the power of living in amazement of those connections, of loving the mystery of the unknown, and of re-examining what we think we know about ourselves. Though graced with beautiful images, hand-printed by the author in a traditional darkroom and then scanned for quality duotone, offset printing, this is far more than a coffee-table art book. Rather, it is a small wonder of insights to be revisited again and again.
