Three great singer songwriters get together to produce something special.
Remastered rerelease of their stunning debut album from 1993. Great songs, harmonies and playing Like a kind of Celtic tinged Crosby Stills & Nash.
The album had a magical innocence that marks it as a classic. All of the elements of their music was layed out here - awesome songs, interplay, harmonies and novel instrumentation marked The Storm Thieves out right away. Many songs on this album continue in their solo and band repetoires.
Dan & Dave had been working together in a songs band The Horse Thieves, and then as a duo.
In 1992 with Chris, as a trio they made an instrumental folk-jazz album as Leaf Storm (leafstorm.bandcamp.com/album/dwellers-in-the-mirage
Chris then joined the songs duo which became The Storm Thieves, and there followed a hugely fruitful period of songwrtiting and performing for all of them.
