E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like – Ian David Green
Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Ian David Green. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I was touched by the story behind these songs.
What an amazing story this album hides.
A love that transcends space and time… a life that ruthlessly goes on and we are left with only indelible memories that are printed into our souls and bones.
This is the story of a father and a son who say goodbye to each for the last time other under this sky.
They will meet again one day in a parallel universe made only of love and emotions.
This music accompanied Ian David Green’s father’s longest journey, these were the last songs he ever heard on this earth and I can’t even imagine the emotions they must have felt listening to these magnificent tunes together one last time.
I can see them sitting on a bench, Ian with his arm on his father’s shoulders, contemplating the sunset and remembering their life together.
This beautiful music and this story struck me in a particular way because I did the same thing for my sister Elda who unfortunately passed away two years ago. I dedicated a song to her that is the last song she listened to before taking the last train to heaven.
This is what I love about music, these eternal stories that hide under these simple notes.
Life is a moment, a thrill that begins and is already over, but that moment magically becomes eternal and is worth living it to the fullest.
Songs of The Sea is Ian David Green’s Album Out Now!
Pure and real emotions!
Quote: “This is a collection of songs written for my father as we supported him through a terminal illness. The subject matter is clearly serious in nature, but the treatments are thoughtful and varied and act not only as a commemoration of one person’s life but also as a story about all of our lives and the experiences, and relationships, that give them value.
My own experiences have been varied enough – the son of a joiner, Oxford graduate, teacher in the Far East, photographer to three Prime Ministers – and now finally releasing music beyond the collection built up on my hard drive. These songs are real and they have beauty. There are listeners for them, of this I am sure.
The release of Songs of the Sea also fulfills a promise to my father, who was able to hear all of the songs and urged me to put them before the ears of others. The cover photo is of the Isle of Skye and the sound of Loch Carron, as taken from Bealach na Ba, where his ashes are scattered“.
