John Seltenreich I think I was hesitant to order this at first wondering 'if there was enough there?' But now having listen through a few times I see just how rich and deep VS's compositions and playing are. For me, the playing is a bit like Evans in the phrasing, but also a bit like Monk as the resonance of the space between the notes carry their own weight. You can tell by the other reviewers how much this work offers each of us on an individual level. So, don't be like me... hesitant... just buy this.

G.E Prince An artist of whom has painted an extremely vivid concept, full of deep colours to clarify the multi layered experience. I was subjected to the subtle sounds of David Sylvian, Eno, I can even hear Gospel. Wonderful interpretation of Blue in Great. This album is steeped in so much mystery, you are never afraid to be led by the hand on its atmospheric journey.

With every Blessing,
George. Favorite track: Mother's Love.

Charlie Moonbeam This is the exactly the type of majestic soulful ambient jazz that I love so dearly.

Every note on the piano feels like a gift from an honest and loyal friend. Favorite track: Mother's Love.

Following a prolific stint of creativity, Sam Beste, aka The Vernon Spring, is set to release his cathartic debut album 'A Plane Over Woods'. Made in the light of losing his father in 2019, and completed during the first COVID-19 lockdown, the album explores new territory for The Vernon Spring, incorporating subtle electronic textures of voices, samples and vinyl crackle loops into his already established beautifully restrained muted piano sound-world.

Perhaps best known as a member of alt-soul trio Hejira, Beste's work as a producer, performer and composer covers a multitude of styles and roles. He has worked with Amy Winehouse, Kano, Kindness, Blood Orange and many more, produced virtuosic London string duo Fran & Flora and sat in as a hang player for Portico Quartet. He has released music on Matthew Herbert's label Accidental Records, composed for film and was commissioned by BBC Radio 3's Nick Luscombe for original work. Curated with Hejira, his TRAUM events in central London attracted performances from Micachu & The Shapes, The Invisible, Kwabs, Oliver Coates, Gwilym Gold, Eska and more. Despite his young age, Sam's musical CV rivals many seasoned pros'.

With 'A Plane Over Woods' he makes his first declarative long-form statement as a solo artist.
