Steve Lawson It's easy for a songwriter as skilled as Iain to ply his brilliantly honed craft but ending up with ultimately unsatisfying if perfectly constructed songs... It happens to so many writers in his position.
Thankfully, Iain has yet to succumb to this tendency, & To The Pine Roots, against the odds, is one of his most personal and emotive records yet. All that great songwriter skill is in there, but it's at the service of a writer who wants to tell stories. Perfect.
Favorite track: Streamer On A Kite.
