Peter Jones It's impossible not to treat this album as a single exposition. It's a transporting composition, bridging genres. A delight to the ears and heart.

jazzbedamned This album is incredibly well-executed, in everything. From instrumentation, to vocals, to the overall atmosphere, this album successfully delivers on all fronts. One thing I'd like to particularly highlight is the incredible attention to detail that iamthemorning expresses across all tracks of the digital album as well as the physical copy. I can't recommend this album enough. Favorite track: Reprise Of Light/No Light.

This album was funded by 227 Kickstarter backers and 113 fellows that didn't have access to Kickstarter, worldwide. The work on the album (including the fundraising campaign) started in March'13 and ended in April'14 and finally, here it is, the album.
Everything became possible thanks to all the people participaiting in the campaign, Marcel van Limbeek who invited us to London to work with him and organized the campaign, his amazing team of Luca, Mark and Anna and with incredible support of Danny Cavanagh and Gavin Harrison.
Love to all <3
