Telling Tales is the new CD from Songwriter/Musician Rob Russell Davies. Covering many different musical styles this album is really about storytelling. Every song tells a different tale, paints a picture, takes you places or ask you questions. Rob's an award winning songwriter, and is the only person to win the Tipperary International Song of Peace competition twice (in 2003 and 2006), as well as being a finalist and semi-finalist in the UK Songwriting Competition. Six great singers tell the stories in styles ranging from pop, jazz, blues, folk, ballads, soul, theatre and there's even a touch of Africa - where Rob grew up! The melodies are finely crafted and unique, every word means something, the harmonies and arrangements are big and bold and there's a passion running through the album which can't be missed. To wet you appetite... listen to the song clips and follow some of the stories... See her standing on the platform of the train station every morning... never boarding and never meeting anyone. She waits and she watches, staring silently onto the tracks, with haunted eyes. (Haunted Eyes) Let me take down a dusty road in aids ravaged Africa to watch a little girl struggle 10 miles for help from her nearest doctor. (Let Me Find Peace) (The 2006 Tipperary International Song Of Peace) We go down the deepest mine on earth: Western Deep Levels Gold Mine near Johannesburg/South Africa to share the plight of a trapped miner praying for the sound of his rescuers approaching gumboots. (Gumboots: The Miner's Song) Saying goodbye at the airport can sometimes lead to a journey, not only for the person going away, but also for the one left behind... (Turn Around) And a really spiteful 'dear John' letter could end up being... a 'dear John' postcard (Postcard From The Bush) We watch the little boy as he dares to make a friend on the wrong side of the wall. (Give It A Minute) (The 2003 Tipperary International Song of Peace) Let's follow the soldier down Damascus Road as he makes his decision between duty and conscience. (Damascus Road) As you can see.... and hear... I Love Stories! Buy Telling Tales and let me share them with you.
