John Mills - After the Rain

John Mills - After the Rain
John Mills was born in Melbourne in 1953. When he was given an electric guitar at age ten, his love for the instrument was born. Like most young people of that time John followed the meteoric rise to fame of the Beatles, learning to play just about everything they wrote, by ear.

At nineteen, John decided to undertake a formal study of the classical guitar, and developed a career as both a teacher and performer spending many hours writing and composing. As John says, "I find the process of writing/composing quite mysterious; I don't set out to write anything in particular, but more through improvisation and meditation a piece will begin; lines and themes rattle around inside, quite often for months on end, and then something complete emerges. The feedback I get about my writing can range from that piece is so tranquil, to your music seems to dabble on the edges of darkness...
I like that my music can evoke all those emotions.

"I can't imagine my life without music and particularly the guitar. Some of my earliest childhood memories are of my father playing the guitar, so it has been a glorious constant, bringing of comfort and joy…”

About this track...

This piece written as a dedication to the amazing Patti Griffin. The guitar tuned to one of her trademark tunings. For the first time, I used an electric guitar to create an ambient backdrop against the main classical guitar part, and the piece has a dreamlike soundscape.
