Artist: Martyn Bates
Album: Your Jewled Footsteps

Label: Sub Rosa
Year: 2006
Designer: Concept and photo by Dominique Goblet, design by Twin Peaks Mount, ‘musicians environment series, Nuneaton, May 2006′
Type of music: Folk, sort of
Notes: Putting aside the deliberately mis-spelled album title (which doesn’t sit well with me at all!), what fascinates about Your Jewled Footsteps is the domestic focus of the imagery. We’re privileged with a view into Bates’ ordinary, ’50s suburban semi. The heavy saturation of the colours, the rain, the oblique portraits and the focus upon light combine to create a subdued, but powerful setting for the singer’s impassioned music.


  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what
    all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would
    be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  2. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was
    hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.

    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  4. I’m not sure why but this blog is loading extremely slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  5. Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a totally different subject
    but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Excellent choice
    of colors!

  6. I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your site.
    It appears as if some of the written text within your content are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.

  7. Appreciating the time and effort you put into your blog and in depth information you provide.
    It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed information. Fantastic read!
    I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  8. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked
    submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless, just wanted to say excellent blog!
