New album, with Cigar Box Guitars used of every track! Have a listen and let me know what you think...

You can hear the album HERE

All songs ©℗bemuzic 2017

Cigar box guitars made by me were used on every song.
I also made most of the drums and percussion instruments, plus some Native American Flutes. (On trk 2, one made from some garden cane is used, and on trk 6, one made from black bamboo)

The only bought instruments are a cheap old children's glockenspiel, a harmonica, an Irish Whistle (on Winter Song) a djembe, and a cajon.

Song inspirations include, one of my favourite authors - Haruki Murakami, the amazing photographer - Sebastião Salgado, and Naomi Klein (The final track was written after reading her book Capitalism VS The Climate)

 Any feedback good or bad (though try and keep it constructive!) welcome...

Simplify is Belinda's best work to date. There's some good stuff here.

Needs to be featured at CBN.

Congrats B!

thanks Digly. I was pleased with how the flutes sounded when recorded. It wasn't quite the zen like experience I imagined it would be making them, with quite a lot of kindling produced!

  Ha yes, an empty room, a vat of wine!

Yeah, I like that.  The handmade flutes sound great !  When you get to an empty room and a case of wine, maybe simplification's getting out of hand.

I sampled it on band camp and thought it was great.  Good for you and congratulations.   I am looking forward to my CD.
