RICHARD WILSON -House Still Burning Down

The album title “House Still Burning Down” is a nod to the Hendrix track “House Burning Down” from "Electric Ladyland" , written at the time of the Watts riots and the Civil Rights era in the US in the 1960’s.

My ten songs cover sociological themes of current issues - everything from corporate scandals in “The New Civil War” and “The Nodding Sycophants” to ethical questions and inequality.

You could call it a modern folk album -as there are so many parallels with the 1960’s and the same sociological issues we face today, forty years later.

As well as questioning where the world is going – there are songs of hope and self analysis – and the optimism of the human spirit in the face of adversity.

On certain songs,there is more of a soundscape and /or electronic approach in production, to convey the mood.

On others , there is the intimate simplicity of just a vocal and an acoustic guitar.
