Phantastes CD

Nick Harper

"As I read the book of the same name by George MacDonald in 1982, I lived on the edge of a forest and used to travel into it in pursuit of a local beauty who I was obsessed with. The book is about a young man's travels into an enchanted forest in search of a marble lady who he is obsessed with. During 2020 this coincidence came back to me and I decided to echo the feel of the novel, the feel of the other-worldly present day during lockdown and also document my own old love story in a 10 song narrative that led to a kiss.. This dreamworld memory is depicted with just vocal, an Eastwood electric baritone guitar called IGOR and some cunning use of 21st century tech, to represent a living, ghostly band. I hope you enjoy the dream.." Nick x
