About the Album
2019 - Folk If 2016’s Make Us Happy was a return to Simon’s folkier roots, "The Rock, the Sea, the Rising Tide" goes to the soil. Eleven totally acoustic, guitar finger-picked songs with a sparse balance of additional instruments. The occasional use of violin, cello, recorders and cumbus, round out each song perfectly. The title of the album is taken from the chorus of The Ballad of Jago Trelawney; a story and character based on a real sea battle that took place in 1793 between the English Nymph & French Cleopatre. Other songs deal with subjects ranging from a shamed Edwardian lady to a delusional lunatic asylum inmate’s dreams of freedom, and the album ends with a touching Ukulele based lament at the climate change disaster that awaits us if action isn’t taken. Singer and guitarist Simon Scardanelli has released many creatively successful albums, singles and EPs since his initial chart success in the late 80’s with the duo Big Bam Boo. Following the U.S top 40 hit Shooting From My Heart in 1989, Simon moved from London to New York where he lived, worked and recorded in the underbelly of New York’s Lower East Side. His moodily challenging album Death Row Tales in 1994 bears testament to that dark and dangerous lifestyle. Since then he has released 5 albums, 3 EPs and several singles, embracing different aspects and genres of his musical passion In 2017 Simon relocated to central Brittany, building a studio in an old farm house and gigging across northern France. If you like intriguing and experimental songwriting, charismatic performing and singing that works in some of the areas explored by the likes of Scott Walker, Vini Reilly, John Martyn, Jacques Brel, David Ackles and Tim Buckley, you'll be inspired to discover Simon Scardanelli's work.
