SONG OF THE DAY Clayhill – Face of the Sun

I often get the urge to listen to Gavin Clark, he’s one of my all-time favourites and left this earth way too early, but the legacy of his music is lasting testament to his understated brilliance.

In 2002 Clark joined forces with Ali Friend and Ted Barnes to form Clayhill.  Releasing their debut album two years later, it was from an EP released that same year that today’s song was taken.  Cuban Green was a 6-track EP released in 2004 conceived with the idea that each song would have an outdoors theme.  Stripped-back and simplistic by nature, the EP was originally created by guitarist/composer Ted Barnes, but it was to be Clark’s desolate vocals that really gave this record a voice.  Face of the Sun is just a beauty.. Check it out above and listen to lots more Gavin Clark magic on my pages here.
