Amrap's AirIt | Australian Music Radio Airplay Project :: Blues/Roots :: Rory Faithfield - Closer To Blue Than Green

Rory Faithfield - Closer To Blue Than Green

Rory Faithfield - Closer To Blue Than Green
With Celtic songlines in his head and grains of sand between his toes, contemporary Australian folk artist Rory Faithfield is now a resident of South Western Australia after many years based in Ireland, where his South West Australian theme song, 'Big Blue Western Skies’ (inspired by the end of 'The Troubles' in Northern Ireland) was heard regularly on BBC Radio Ulster.

Bruce Elder stated, "Faithfield inhabits the same rich musical world as Christy Moore, Luka Bloom and Glen Hansard. His songs are wistful, romantic, deeply felt, beautifully crafted and sung with a voice that pours sincerity and emotion over every line and note”.

’Southern Cross, Northern Skies’ is the 5th and latest album featuring the new songs, ‘Closer To Blue Than Green’, ‘Sweet Summer Wine’ and the Anzac tribute, ‘First To Fall’.

About this track...

I was in Dublin and stopped in my car at the traffic lights. I noticed that the colour of the green arrow light: Closer to blue than green. I think it's about moving from naivety and innocence (green) to growing up and moving on (blue) and back home again (green).
