This is a reissue record released by Irish dnb artist Dominick Martin from his own label Signature Records in April 2024. (Originally released in 4)

Contains 8 jazz-pop songs created while staying on Valentia Island, Ireland. 180g heavy board, gatefold specification.

The following is a commentary by the writer himself.

"On the west coast of County Kerry, Ireland lies the stunning Valentia Island. Connected to the mainland by a bridge, it is a beautiful place steeped in history and songs of the sea. I spent a few weeks there at home. When I got there, I took my computer and microphone with me. There was a piano in one of the rooms, and my fingers touched the keys. I knew there was a story waiting to be told.The piano sounded very strange there as 100 mph winds pounded the house and interrupted my recording. Later, other material came from my time on the island, but the main pieces I recorded there now make up this album.

Artist statement by Dominick Martin, 2013:

"Along the west coast of Co Kerry in Ireland you will find the amazing Valentia Island. Attached by a bridge to the mainland, it is a place of beauty touched by years of history and the songs of the sea. I managed to obtain a house there for a few weeks, I took my computer and mic with me not knowing what to expect when I got there. In one of the rooms sat a piano, and as my fingers touched the keys I knew there was a story there waiting to be told. The sound of the piano in that place was something very magical as 100mph winds battered the house and interrupted my recordings. Other material has since emerged from those days spent on the island, but the main body of work that I recorded there makes up this album that I now present to you."
