The League of Ukulele Gentlemen CD - Live Studio Album
Sea of Change - The first album from The League of Ukulele Gentlemen
Sea of Change is a live studio recording, produced by Brown Sounds of Otley - giving listeners a live experience, with studio quality recording. This provides a close experience to a live gig, with the bonus of superb sound quality.
The eight tracks are all original songs and arrangements by The League of Ukulele Gentlemen, with their signature big sound - incorporating Andy Webster's powerful and distinctive vocals and rhythmic ukulele, Matt Warnes's effects-driven, huge sounding ukulele lead work and Jerry King's anchoring ukulele bass and rich tapestry of synth.
Sea of Change - King - A haunting, but ultimately uplifting opener, with synthesiser and reverb-heavy uke echoing each other as the lyrics unfold.
Red of Winter's Dawn - Warnes - A fast paced story of love lost, but fondly remembered, accompanied by James Hill-style riffs and powerful three part harmonies.
BudaChild - Webster/King - Familiar melodies of modern classics meld together in this crowd-pleasing original arrangement.
The Maid of Raven's Crag - Webster - A rocky folk tale of danger and distress at the hand's of the mythical maid, full of harmony and crunchy uke distortion.
Blue Eyes - Warnes - The pace builds throughout this story of redemption, with searing ukulele melody played against a backdrop of huge-sounding synth
Catalonian Odyssey - Webster - An instrumental inspired by the music of the Iberian peninsula, building from a melodic start to a fiesta-inspired finish.
Breathe - King - Take a sprinkling of a Bach Cello Concerto, add in though-provoking lyrics and The League's signature sound comes into its own.
The Keeping it Real, Reel - Webster - A rapidly-paced instrumental that showcases the skills of each band member in a foot-stomping finale.
