Who Is Tom Sanderson?
I am a product of a 70's childhood. Watching programs such as Bagpuss and Camberwick Green through to Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy. I was always fascinated by the music that accompanied the shows.
As I grew up I was drawn to the guitar and listened to all the usual rock'n'roll hero's that came with it. This, coupled with watching spaghetti western movies and films such as The Wicker Man, I found myself spellbound by their soundtracks while being more absorbed by the melodic instrumental songs of the guitar maestros in my vinyl collection.
All this has influenced me in my pursuit of writing music without the directional pull of lyrics but, I hope, a colourful, thought inducing, melody to lead the listener somewhere within their own imagination.
Bombus was recorded in the springtime of 2010 in a cottage, in a wood, by a lake.
