‘Sojourner’ is a cinematic folk album by one of the UK’s finest acoustic guitar talents, Stewart Garry. Recorded live in various locations around the UK and filmed at the same time, ‘Sojourner’ is the film and soundtrack to a story of growing up, getting inspired and finding home.

Stewart has built a career playing around UK venues, but in ‘Sojourner’ he returns to places that have inspired his writing, from Laphroaig Distillery on Islay to a lighthouse in the outskirts of Newcastle. It’s an album that sounds as unique as it looks, and it’s tied together by the fluid and explosive ideas that colour Stewart’s writing, improbably inspired by punk, classical, movie soundtracks and foreign styles. Strings buzz and hum, framed by punchy percussive playing, and chords hang in the air until they erode into the roar of the ocean or the quiet of a stone chapel.

For those who feel like wayfarers themselves, searching for something true, ‘Sojourner’ might take them the next mile. It’s not a journey of escape, but a hymn that brings you a few steps closer to home.
