Alchymical Muse is an innovative and experimental project, based around voice and cello at its core, but encomp​assing huge diversity. "The Spark" combines spine-​tingli​ng vocal harmonies in wordless lyrics, choral chants, Gaelic lament and flourishes of poetry, with haunting cello, celtic harp, dark tumbling guitars and a diversity of strings, drums and chimes.

Haunting psych-folk inspired by the English landscape and the spirits of the ancestors. I play 12-string guitar, harp, piano, cornamuse, whistle and whatever else comes to hand. Now working full time with Marvin B Naylor.
