HORSEDREAMER is a collaboration between me and my old friend the poet and singer Roger Robinson. Imagine it as a conversation between old friends when words resound and shared stories build pathways straight to the heart. I provide the music, Roger the words. Horsedreamer is our conversation.
As you know at Beating drum we’re always looking to experiment with the kind of object we produce to accompany music and so we printed up a kind of poetic comic book to provide a backdrop for Horsedreamer’s songs, the comic book tells the enigmatic story of two renegade wanderers in the badlands of an imaginary central american wasteland. The object is available on the Beating Drum shop only and sold together with a download of the four tracks from the ep. There are only 200 copies!
If things go well Roger and I would like to push this concept further when the full album comes out by combining the full length record with a complete graphic novel…

Beating drum is also putting out exciting new eps that I’ve also collaborated on from beginning to end.
First up YELLI YELLI with the kind of cultural cross-over style that I love. Artistically set somewhere between Paris and Kabylie in Algeria, I recorded it with Emi Hanak aka Yelli Yelli.
As a young girl, Yelli Yelli’s mother would sing her traditional Kabyle songs. The songs, sung in a language that she couldn’t understand stayed with her nonetheless, planting a seed in her that would later bring her to explore the musical and cultural imprint of her own origins. I was glad Yelli Yelli turned to me for this project as a fellow wanderer between musical frontiers, it was exactly the kind of project I love writing and collaborating on.
