Beans On Toast - Open Door Policy

Beans On Toast

A musician it is always a pleasure to return to with the insightful narrative and raw delivery.

With the normal construct of identifying the issues in poetic lyrical form with earthy vocal and quiet instrumentation and yet – having drawn a dark cloud through the room concludes with an unanticipated and abstract ray of sunshine, leaving the audience feeling better about life than prior to listening – the first of the fourteen tracks is Open Door Policy.

Cushty – Beans On Toast is available on iTunes.*

The quietly measured soundtrack belies their distress at the social injustice and political posturing around the globe as the just under an hour and a quarter release threads through the room in an eclectic range of compositions.

By way of an introduction the second – Holy Mountain.
