released November 17, 2007

Critically-acclaimed Canadian guitarist-composer, Ray Montford, unveils his sixth album, a fragile balance, his most cinematic to date. Inspired by a series of unforeseen events, this is a soulful exploration of life's journeys, highlighted by Montford's buttery blues/rock electric tones and deft acoustic fingerstyle work.

Beginning with the haunting melody of Honour This Land, the album builds to a peak of orchestration in the epic When Darkness Takes Flight, propelled by powerful drumming and a gorgeous cello arrangement. Dynamically recorded with sparse arrangements and great sonics, the result is a cohesive tale of a mature artist. This is instrumental music that commands to be heard - at a healthy volume - offering a depth that ill reveal new insights with each listen.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of Totem Acoustic and the Toronto Arts Council.
