In 2010, For Every Day You Lost was released: the debut album of Brave Timbers, a project from Newcastle. The album was very well received and sold out quickly because of the limited edition. Five years later the versatile musicians Sarah Kemp and Andrew Scrogham return with their second album Hope.

Brave Timbers can be best described as atmospheric ambient with some post classic. Ethereal violins, complemented with an acoustic guitar and a piano. The music evokes a quiet atmosphere with eleven compositions, based on the feelings and sensations you feel when you’re exposed to nature.

The structures are calm and simple, it’s perfect for keeping the hectic chaotic daily life of modern man in balance. Ideal if you want to take a seat after another busy day, close your eyes and let all the stress flow away and dream away on the immersive sounds of these soundscapes.

On this second album, Brave Timbers hits the right chord again and turns this hectic world into a haven. The music feels like fresh air in a world, dominated by speed and power. The album was recorded in a Victorian music hall in Salford.

In 2010 mochten we kennis maken met For Every Day You Lost : het debuutalbum van het uit Newcastle afkomstige project Brave Timbers. Het album werd heel goed ontvangen en mede door de beperkte oplage raakte het vlug uitverkocht. Vijf jaar later komen de veelzijdige muzikanten Sarah Kemp en Andrew Scrogham met hun tweede Brave Timbers album Hope naar buiten. 

Brave Timbers kan je best omschrijven als sfeerrijke ambient die naar postclassic neigt. Zweverige violen die worden begeleid door een getokkelde akoestische gitaar en een ondersteunende piano die een heel aangename en rustige sfeer creëren. Hope bevat elf composities die gebaseerd zijn op de gevoelens en gewaarwordingen die de uitgestrekte en ongerepte natuur oproepen.

Het brengt met zijn kalme eenvoudige structuren het jachtige chaotische dagelijkse leven van de hedendaagse mens weer in balans. Ideaal om na een drukke werkdag even onderuit te zakken in de zetel, de ogen te sluiten en alle stress te laten wegvloeien op de meeslepende klanken van deze soundscapes.

Brave Timbers weet dus ook met dit tweede album de juiste snaar te raken om deze hectische wereld even on hold te zetten. Een verademing in een wereld die wordt gedomineerd door snelheid en power. Het album is opgenomen in een Victoriaanse concertzaal in het Britse Salford.
