The Forest and The Sea features a dynamic hybrid of electronic and acoustic songs. Telling a true story, the compositions are bound together by a meticulous narrative enriched by haunting vocals and traditional instrumentation. Both story and field recordings were constructed and gathered in various locations including Greece, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

This journey reveals John’s musical kaleidoscope and his consolidated approach to song writing, field recordings and electronics. A significant development from John’s earlier works, he manages to produce seamless transitions between electronics and song writing. The end result is the creation of a new, all-encompassing genre. The list of guests includes drummer Seb Rochford and bassist Tom Herbert from Mercury Music Prize nominees Polar Bear. Additional vocals are provided by Leo Chadburn aka Simon Bookish, and Alice Grant.
