“After Under The Spire released my work as a limited edition CD issue, I was desperate to get another physical release under my belt. Before Frozen Quarters was released, I got talking to Jonathan from Hibernate and he agreed to release some of my work. I had lots of time to get the details just right and also, the sleek digi-pack format meant that there was greater scope for artwork to reflect my chosen theme. I decided that the theme needed to be bold. I had some rough sketches in place and began to consider what the album’s concept would be. I was daydreaming one evening with the TV on in the background and I noticed that a documentary about ships was on. I was hooked on all things boats, ships and the ocean and before long, Voyage was born – the tale of a fictitious sinking ship disaster. At that point much of my discography had been quite delicate and lightweight – I worked hard to give Voyage an air of atmosphere and power whilst not going over the top. A key figure was photographer Richard Outram who took several images around the Anglesey coast. I knew what I wanted for the front cover but struggled to describe it accurately and Richard worked hard to get it, with the eventual cover artwork being exactly what I was after. I was also in contact with Russian composer Alex Tiuniaev who kindly provided piano for Clouds Swarm and She Sinks.”
