Bill Fay - Who Is The Sender?
This product is currently sold out.
After a 40-year gap between albums, North London songwriter Bill Fay returned to recording with the glorious Life Is People in 2012. Who Is the Sender? reunites he and producer Joshua Henry. Fay's vocal and a piano are the centre of these songs with standard rock band instrumentation, though tastefully employed chamber strings and horns are more prevalent this time around. They illustrate Fay's soft yet authoritatively questioning voice, which is more assured but far from pendantic. His poetic, poignant observations about the natural world, humanity's contradictory impulses, philosophical and cosmological queries, and direct political assertions are direct yet presented with genuine humility. As a result, these simple songs are brimming with moral authority.
