Deaf Joe's second full-length album, 'From The Heights Of A Dream', is out now on Delphi (www.delphilabel.com). The album is a leap away from the abstracted folk of first release 'Burrowings', into an almost neo-classical world of spaces and atmospheres. Songs are held together as much by the power of individual sounds as they are by melody or harmony. Its physical release is accompanied by a limited edition book, made in collaboration with visual artist Paul Hallahan.
