*The Following Press Release Was Issued By Gareth Inkster*
My new duo –
“Thank You,” was written in the late stages of grief.
I had done the denial, the bargaining and all the rest of it and I had come to a place of surprising stillness.
Upon reflection, I came to feel grateful, above all else, for what I’d had in the first place, rather than only sorrowful for what I’d lost..

The title track didn’t take very long to write – it’s only two verses and an outro, really, but it took quite a long time to arrange and mix. I really wanted it to sound ultimately hopeful, although sad and gentle, although driven.
The second song, “Vermilion,” is a reworking of a previously released piece. This version is slowed down and a bit sparser.
I hope these songs can be a comfort to you in this harrowing season we’re all enduring together.
Love from Hamilton, Canada.
