Burnt Belief – Colin Edwin and Jon Durant

Burnt BeliefLast night when my run ended so did the soundtrack of the run The Folk Sinner from Lee Harvey Osmond. As a result,I needed some music for the cool down. I wanted something quiet something to I could zone out to, while I was recovering. I turned to an album that’s been on the iPhone for a while now Burnt Belief from the duo of Jon Durant and Colin Edwin. Jon Durant is a guitarist, a composer and also is the  executive producer of Alchemy Records, where produces recordings for internationally acclaimed artists in his small Massachusetts-based studio. Colin Edwin is a bassist and a current member of the group Porcupine Tree. I liked what I heard and this morning I decided to give the whole album another listen as I continued to work on that Waterfront Development project.

Burnt Belief is the second collaboration between Durant and Edwin, The first was the album Dance of the Shadow Planets, which was released in September of 2012. From Wikipedia here’s some background on Colin Edwin:
