I gave this piece as a gift to my daughter Giulia." The album has been very well received. “ask the river” is exceptionally composed and performed. It was a thrill to listen to. She is working at a high level of artistry not reached by many composers.” – Philip Glass “Her frequent collaborator, director Douglas McGrath, quotes a line about Truman Capote from the movie Infamous: “'When you look at a candle, at its bright flame, at the center there’s always that little touch of blue.'

Node Records releases Rachel Portman's new single

Rachel Portman's new single "leaves and trees" is out now via Node Records! Node Records, part of Wise Music Group, is excited to release the single "leaves and trees" from award-winning composer Rachel Portman. Note From Rachel Portman on “leaves and trees” :“leaves and trees” took as its starting point the sense of being immersed within the upper branches of a beech tree in late spring. The leaves are at their freshest and greenest, and the light is refracted through them as they move in the breeze. The music is an expression of that feeling. It's impossible to say what happens when trying to evoke my response to those leaves and trees as no thinking can happen in order to allow the music to write itself. Listen to the single here

"Broken Soldier" - new single from Fallulah

Fallulah has just released her new single "Broken Soldier"! It is the first single from her next EP, All My Eyes Are Open pt. II. The track draws inspiration from Fallulahs Balkan roots and uses strong imagery to convey the message, with lyrics suchs as »My heart is a broken soldier / my heart needs a friendly shoulder« It's a song that's very close to Fallulah's heart: "This song is really special to me. Of course they all are but some just mean that bit extra. I wrote it after a very dark time in my life where I had felt so disconnected from myself, from my purpose and the love of music and from true lightness and joy. The answer was to start treating myself as a friend. I had always taken pride in being a really good friend to others, the loyal one and the one always ready to drop everything to offer my help and support. The one always showing up and keeping my word. But I had forgotten to do the same for myself. I would stretch myself too thin, never being fully present in what I was doing because I felt torn by expectations (my own and from others) and not managed take care of my own well being, which made me feel like a failure as an artist and a new mother. It has taken a long time and some rough lessons but I’m finally getting there! Today I am my own friend. And again in love with my life and making music. Feeling that true 🔥 within that has always been my companion." Listen to the track on Spotify.
