After a decade building drystone walls and cultivating olive trees in Tuscany, Ian King returns with an extraordinary new album – setting poems by Emily Dickinson to his own music.
All musical arrangements composed, performed and recorded by Ian King.
“This is a very special album for me that represents numerous personal developments on so many levels. My first ever fully self-produced recordings and a delightful safari into the world of Emily Dickinson’s poetry. In writing songs to these poems the idea was to try animate the words, bring them to life in a new way.”
