A Rest Before The Walk, Keith Seaman

Take one electronica scene scape audio architect from Portsmouth and folk singer from Devon and put then into a rural recording studio for the weekend and see what happens. That is just a very small part of the story of how Keith went from concept to product.
See what folks are saying about this record at The Sunday Experience and Wyrd Daze Vol.4
The album is now available to buy via the Ghost Box Records Guest Store

It's Been A While.........

Apologies for the radio silence folks but we have been busy on the other social networks with all things Twister Valley. So here is a quick update on what has been a very productive year thus far. Douglas E Powell and The Rising Spirit has released their long awaited new album Good Men Get Lost At Sea. There is really good buzz about the new album across the web boosted by a play of the track Nash's Tower on BBC Radio 6 Music's Gideon Coe show and a lot of air play on various internet radio stations around the world. We would especially like to thank Brian Player at The Acoustic Cafe Radio Show who has long been a supporter of Douglas's music. We will be making the album available on download soon, Bandcamp we think but for now the album is available on CD via Douglas's web site at

Good Men Get Lost At Sea
Earlier in the year we decided to release a limited edition (50 off) EP, The Twister Valley Sessions featuring 2 pre-mastered versions of songs from Good Men...'She Turns Their Heads' and 'Good Ol' Twine' also a re-mixed version of 'Light Beams' from Douglas's 2008 album The Iron Coast. We are glad to report that all copies have now been sold so good luck trying to find one. You can listen to tracks from the EP at our Soundcloud page.
