Simon O’Reilly – Evolve

Guitarist, composer and producer Simon O’Reilly started a finger-picking acoustic album a few years ago, but being an artist who has worked with ther likes of Davy Spillane, Twin Headed Wolf and Luka Bloom, and produced a clutch of film soundtracks, the songs soon began to grow in scope. O’Reilly plays 15 different instruments on the record (show-off), whittled 70 tracks down to 10, and 20 jazz and classical musicians were summoned to O’Reilly’s Lahinch studio to record. The result is a sample-free album of mostly instrumental music that is as much trip-hop and electronica as it is suitable for soundtracks. Evolve is a rich tapestry of soundscapes to lose yourself in.
