New album for Yvonne Lyon, Gareth Davies-Jones, David Lyon

THE NORTHUMBERLAND-based singer/songwriter Gareth Davies-Jones, whose Cross Rhythms radio hits include "Broken Things" and "All Things Come", and the Scottish singer Yvonne Lyon, whose "Feel The Light" was a CR radio playlist track, are two of the three featured artists on a new independent album.

'Trace The Line' by Yvonne Lyon, Gareth Davies-Jones and David Lyon was enthusiastically reviewed in the September/October RnR magazine. They wrote, "The eclectic nature of their musical influences does not jar or stumble, but facilitates a suitably rich exercise of melodic variation where vocal harmony, careful instrumentation and lyrical ambition (not always successfully realised) to take on complex subjects comprises an album well worth making, before its originators return to their separate assignments. The great charm here is that all variations [of musical style] are most capably performed and no track loses its way. Lyrics lead in one direction: an estimation of the human condition and what we can do to deal with it. Insights, thankfully, abound." CR
