The, last time i heard you live, was, in a tin shed, on mcleans island at the steam museum, there were people with ear muffs oiling the machines, it was a christmas party, and we got the bus home to the square, and gasoline cowboy sang as well, in the tin shed...see you in Q, all this time later, mmm it arrived the CD, Track 9 or something, saw this live at Q Theatre, it was next level
Favorite track: Last Time We Spoke.
This album it is pure magic and a travel of emotions. It is an outstanding musical experience and if you are a fan of artists such as Olafur Arnalds or Max Richter, then I'm pretty sure you will love this journey. To me this is the album of the year and a work of art!
Favorite track: We Danced Under a Broken Sky.
Rhian Sheehan creates one of the most beautiful musical landscapes. So soft and emotional. incredible. The whole new Album is really magic. Unfortunately I cannot watch the concerts in New Zealand .. Hopefully more People from Europe will listen to his great Music. Thanks Rhian
Five years since the release of his previous studio album, Rhian Sheehan returns with A Quiet Divide. Acclaimed for both his music and his composition, Sheehan’s latest piece of work is a sublime marriage of orchestral chamber music with textural cinematic guitar and synth soundscapes.
A Quiet Divide sees his most cinematic piece of work to date, merging his experience crafting cinematic scores with the post-rock sound listeners have come to expect.

A deeply effecting post-rock LP layered with the pensive zen-hauntings of Max Richter, richly layered ambient frames, and warmly shimmering post-rock billows. The LP is a reflective elegy, a long look back and a tremendous LP. brantly
