40ft CABLE 10ft STAGE
Scully Ward releases debut album 40ft Cable 10ft Stage, an astonishingly vast and versatile body of work. This album is the culmination of years of Scully’s unrecorded material through various band formations, finally cultivated and captured over a 3 year period. Comprising a massive 20 tracks, Scully encompasses a diverse array of musical genres, described by producer Zac Dorne as “acoustic instrumental world music all the way up to prog rock, with some blues, funk, reggae and a power ballad or two”. Throughout the shifting styles, Scully’s vocal performance holds firm, his strong and clear voice displaying his impressive range. Instrumental interludes between vocal tracks, including the suitably named ‘Dream Chaser’, showcase Scully’s capacity to make his guitar sing, with titles such as ‘Waves Reflect the Moon’ proving the calibre of his guest musicians. You can almost hear the lifeblood that has been poured into each song - earnest, relatable lyrics delivered wholeheartedly, enveloped in ardent playing. Somebody give this man a 40ft stage.
