Demo Tracks and Info

As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning

A collection of gently vibrant, uplifting acoustic guitar and keyboard based instrumental music tracks backed with beautiful orchestration and occasional rhythms. The music perfectly captures the mood and feel of Laurie Lee’s lyrical account of his voyages as a young man in the book ‘As I walked out one midsummer morning’. This is a daring album by Steve Orchard in which he showcases his talents as both a gifted guitar player and as a producer and arranger.

There is variation in both tempo and mood and it is an expressive musical journey filled with the same sense of exploration and discovery found within the pages of Laurie Lee’s classic work. Attempting to translate a classic written work into music is always going to difficult, but Steve has succeeded admirably in producing a heartfelt, melodic musical statement of some distinction.

This album is available to download or as a duplicated CD. Check out our FAQ page for more information.

    As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning ! The title of this album alone drew me straight in, and when you step on the path as your mind walks along with each track, it takes you to a very special place. For me, it conjured up lots of nostalgic feelings, even of times that I had never experienced in my life, but of experiences I know are all possible in life. It is an elegant album and as always, each album I have heard of Steve Orchards, he captures the very essence of each landscape he wants to express, perfectly with his incredible musical talent. I look forward to hearing much more music from Steve.
