The Little Unsaid - December Songs
Cat. no: REVEAL181CDX
Release Date: 03 Dec 2021
'December Songs' is an intimate wintery album recorded during lockdown a defiant way to make music in the face of lockdowns, studio sessions being cancelled, and the impending uncertainty of not seeing loved ones at Christmas time
Elliott borrowed an old guitar and mandolin from a neighbour, set up two microphones in the corner of his flat in South London, and recorded the basis of the album live in just a few days. Working mostly at night, the necessity of not waking the neighbours gave the album its hushed and intimate dynamic. Elliott says: "I wanted to find simple songs that captured the melancholy of this time of year, but also the cosiness, the closeness, the joy of simple acoustic music in a dimly lit room, and the promise of a different kind of year ahead."
