Having first met in 1991, music photographer STEVE GULLICK and JAMES JOHNSTON, founder of Gallon Drunk, began blurring the boundaries between audio and visual in 2004 when they formed their own band, '...bender'.

They've maintained the habit ever since, with Gullick subsequently founding Tenebrous Liar and Johnston pursuing a career, alongside his work with PJ Harvey and a tenure in Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, as an acclaimed visual artist and painter.

Johnston and Gullick have returned to their craft to create a stunning new selection of songs and moods, brought together for the album 'Everybody's Sunset'.

Recorded at their homes throughout 2021 and 2022, the ten songs on this new album take the fragile intimacy and agenda-free approach of its predecessor and go out even further into the fringes of tone and feeling.

Utilising a vast selection of instruments between them (violin, organ, guitar, banjo, autoharp, harmonica, piano, synthesisers_.), 'Everybody's Sunset' ebbs and flows, bringing different instruments and signals to the fore as the album progresses.

a bold, adventurous musical trip that finds Johnston and Gullick's musical bond grow ever deeper and closer.

Tune in and watch the Sunset glow. All songs written, arranged and recorded by James Johnston and Steve Gullick James Johnston: Violin, voice, organ, piano, guitar, banjo, autoharp.

Steve Gullick: Voice, guitar, piano, organ, harmonica, harmonium.
