It’s as heartbreaking as it is fascinating – so don’t expect a comfortable read.

Released in April this year, Dan Wainwright & Elle Redding’s Mother Oak is a concept album that combines spoken word with Acid House to tell the life of an oak tree. In Dan’s words, the album “carries meaning and wisdom and at the same time conveys our wonder, awe and joy that we both experience by being in nature(…)”. Stream the album or buy it on vinyl.
