The Wishing Tree – Ostara (2009) U.K.

Posted in Prog Related with tags on August 17, 2009 by MarkProg


This is Steve Rothery’s (MARILLION) solo musical adventure recorded in ’96 during a break in the action of MARILLION. The WISHING TREE features Steve Rottery on guitar and Hannah Stobart on vocals. Rounding out the line up is Paul Craddick on drums and Pete Trewavas (MARILLION) on bass. Rothery uses quite a lot of acoustic guitar which complements Stobarts voice very well especially in the ballads. The music has a neo progressive approach to the production but there is also a strong influence from English folk music which seems to come mostly from Stobarts voice and performance approach.
