"An Abandoned Orchid House" is an album of ethereal, intimate soundscapes and powerful, emotive imagery. The album journeys through many different interior terrains that all in some way lead, via loss and alienation, to hope.
"Or perhaps it’s just the machinations of a poetically-inclined songwriter alone in her cottage. " She says, warming to the album's themes of isolation and abandonment.
"I think there are as many responses to music as there are people in the world. However, if I could have my way, I would hope people that hear this record would know that they are totally not alone and not isolated in their thoughts, feelings and experiences. Music has saved my life so many times, so If one person gets the feeling that ‘it’s not just me that feels this way’ then that for me is a total success.
Stephen Lambe of Sonicbond comments:
"The music of Talitha Rise epitomises everything that we are trying to achieve with Sonicbond. Her music is deeply introspective yet supremely melodic, with widescreen, ethereal arrangements that will appeal to fans of both progressive music and folk. We are delighted to give her the platform to reach a wider audience."
Main recording was completed at Bubble Studio in Sussex where Talitha Rise’s vocals, guitars, keys and unusual instrumentations were complemented to perfection by collaborator Martyn Barker (Shriekback, Robert Plant, Marianne Faithful, Billy Bragg) with both his drumming and multi-instrumental skills.
The album also includes many guest appearances including: Juldeh Camara (Robert Plant/Justin Adams/Real World - Gambian Riti), Peter Yates (Fields of the Nephilim - guitars) Arnulf Linder (KT Tunstall, Ed Harcourt - cello) and Rory McFarlane (Katie Melua - bass). Award winning songwriter Kathryn Williams provided most of the lyrics for "Valley" and songwriter Nick Webb (vocals, keys) collaborated on "Bloodfox".
