'Never Ending Loop' EP released Feb 2014.
"Acoustic singer-songwriter Kris D Marsden's latest release see's a snapshot into the mind of a man in some degree of emotional turmoil. Rich in the sort of soft, Donovan inspired production that would make it onto any indie-romance film's soundtrack, 'Dear Dad' is Marsden's ode to his late father and a touching tribute indeed. The subtle integration of piano lies delicately amongst the anguish laden vocal, though it's difficult to concentrate on much beyond the sentiments of a song so deeply rooted in it's authors conscious.
For fans of: Willamette Stone, Neil Young, Elliot Smith
The title is self-explanatory for this memorial track. This neo-folk tune elicits contemplation under starry skies; vast and quiet at the same time.
Simple guitar strings and steady voice illustrate this heartfelt homage. Simply put, a lovely song. Noelle Ellis, GiggingNI.com
