"Soundscapes" is the second album from UK based composer and multi-instrumentalist Steve Bowe, following hot on the heels of his stunning debut, "Finest Hour". This time there is no overall concept to the album, but instead twelve superb instrumental tracks each with their own theme and imagery in sound. It has been a very personal project for Bowe, capturing many of his favourite ideas and places with his trademark evocative sounds, accessible structures and melodic themes.

As is typical of his work, a wide range of musical styles are employed to take the listener on a fascinating journey. Where else will you find an album of music that takes you from ancient Egypt to the battlefields of the First World war via the back streets of Paris, an 18th century sailing ship, the lochs of Scotland and the highways of California?

You will certainly enjoy the journey.
