An extract from The Canyon Ryde Facebook page says:
"Phil Lively-Masters heard the pedal steel on a Lemonheads song in the nineties, felt a spark, and proceeded to ride the fresh wave of Americana being produced over the coming years.
Simultaneously, Phil looked back to those artists forefathers: the renegades, Waylon and Willie, and country rock pioneer Gene Clark, amongst many others. Throw the inspirational landscape of Devon, his stomping ground, into the mix and Phil was reeling with the possibilities.
Peter Bruntnell, one of the UK's foremost exponents off-kilter Americana, was the catalyst for some song expansion, stepping out from behind the production desk to add his own deft touches.
Finally, Phil called on none other than The Jayhawks - as they've been knocking around together since Phil struck up a friendship with Mark Olson at a gig. Phil even played at Mark's wedding! Step forward Gary Louris of the band, offering his considerable guitar and vocal talents to complete the picture.
It turns out to be a scenic journey taking in all the romance of the beaches, sunsets, and as many carefree moments as can be shoe-horned into one album.
'Shining warmth Of The Sun' is a DNA tangle of The Byrds and The Jayhawks. And 'Till We Find' and 'New Beginning' are modern Americana chipped from a classic mold with vocals to melt the blackest heart.
As the album progresses, and the shadows lengthen, the tracks relax into elongated meditations with 'Beyond Lies The Open Sea' stretching to over eight minutes of psychedelic hammond organ and riffs. Following up is 'Seven Summers' layering on sheets of glorious melancholy for a memorable coda."
