The Cunic Ensemble came together in 2011 after multi instrumentalist John Clarke had written a batch of songs that had themes in common. Although Clarke had experience in writing and producing instrumental music for films, these songs begged for interaction with other musicians – the birth of The Cunic Ensemble. Among the many contributors are local Mersey singer Ann-Marie Howard and Liverpool actor Paul Duckworth. In all, there are about 16 musicians and singers involved in the project. Don’t mistake eclectic for disjointed – this is an assured debut that delivers the goods.
23 albums touched by the hand of God in 2012 – a non-numbered list of albums that I’ve played over and over that were released in 2012. Some of them were reviewed here on Jason’s Jukebox, some of them weren’t. All of them are worth your time and attention. The last look back at an amazing year of music. I’ll see you later this week with my 1st review of 2013.
