This is the first solo release by lap/pedal steel session player M.G. Boulter under his own name. He has previously released records under the name The Whispering Pines (2012), and self-released a selection of songs as Blue Vinyl Island in 2008. The album documents the life of his coastal home in Essex, which he came to re-appreciate after touring with both The Lucky Strikes and the Simone Felice Group in 2012. The album features members of the Lucky Strikes and London folk trio Troubadour Rose, as well as legendary session drummer Pick Withers who has played for Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Bert Jansch, and Dire Straits, among others. Boulter is the singer and guitarist of British rock band The Lucky Strikes and he plays lap steel and mandolin in the U.S.-based Simone Felice Group. He has played for many other artists including Conor Oberst, Neil McSweeney, Dead Flowers, and Deer Park. Boulter has garnered previously good reviews for his work including four star reviews in Uncut and R2 for The Whispering Pines in 2012 and was a featured artist on Marc Riley's show on BBC6 Music.
