Lost in the Ghost Light

Tim Bowness – Lost in the Ghost Light (InsideOutMusic, 2017)

Tim Bowness is one of the most exciting artists in the British progressive music scene who incorporates a wide-range of influences to his music. ‘Lost In The Ghost Light’ is an exquisite recording where Bowness’ mesmerizing vocals are joined by beautifully-crafted keyboard and acoustic orchestrations along with fabulous guitar, flute and keyboard solos.

Bowness treats the listener to a wonderful mix of atmospheric songs and superb symphonic progressive rock that will bring joy to fans of progressive rock-era Genesis and other 1970s classic acts. For fans of mellotron, this album is a true delight, with some of the finest mellotron work I’ve heard in recent years.

‘Lost in the Ghost Light’ was mixed and mastered by Bowness’ longtime collaborator, Steven Wilson.

The lineup includes Tim Bowness on vocals, backing vocals, synthesizers and rhythm programming; Stephen Bennett on keyboards and additional guitars; Bruce Soord on guitars and backing vocals; Hux Nettermalm on drums; Andrew Booker on drums; Colin Edwin on electric, fretless and acoustic bass guitars.

The impressive guest list includes Ian Anderson on flute; Kit Watkins on flute and waterphone; Steve Bingham on violin; Charlotte Dowding Violin Ensemble; Andrew Keeling provided the string arrangements, flute and acoustic guitars; David Rhodes on guitar; and The ‘unknown’ Pete Smith on Rickenbacker bass.

Tim Bowness releases first track from new album ‘Lost in the Ghost Light’

Acclaimed progressive rock musician Tim Bowness has released a music video with ‘You Wanted to Be Seen,’ the first track from his upcoming album, titled ‘Lost In The Ghost Light‘.

You Wanted to Be Seen is about someone at their most weary and emotionally withdrawn,” says Tim Bowness. “It’s very much a self-reflective ‘dark night of the soul’ lyric.

Musically, it’s something of an extreme split between the reflective melancholy of the verses and the apocalyptic anger of the latter part of the song, which features some intense dueling guitar and violin parts from Bruce Soord and No-Man’s Steve Bingham.”
