Olagon: Eighth Blackbird and Daniel Trueman


Olagon is a production of epic proportions, the biggest I have encountered or attempted. We achieved something we have been trying to do for ages: build an album spanning a staggering array of cultures and styles but holds tightly together under one intense thematic roof.

Thank you Eighth Blackbird for the opportunity, and for your beautiful inspiration. Thank you Dan Trueman and Paul Muldoon for your collaboration and creation.

But truely the delight and power comes from the vocal performance that carries us through; thank you Iarla Ó Lionáird.


Produced by Jesse Lewis
