Garreth Broke's new album Healing, a collaboration with the German contemporary artist Anna Salzmann, will be released by 1631 Recordings / Decca in October 2019. A musical response to 11 abstract art pieces by Salzmann, the pieces that make up Healing are by turns tender, melancholy and ultimately redemptive. Designed to be performed live with an accompanying art projection featuring the 11 art pieces, the Healing album is unique, innovative and profoundly moving.

The Healing project is one of several collaborations with Salzmann, including 2019's uplifting Dance EP (1631 Recordings), 2017's acclaimed album Another Turn: Collected EPs (1631 Recordings), and 2016's Coping Mechanism (self-released), a heart-breaking exploration of the complex grief after losing a loved one to suicide.


Following a decade working as a musician, UK-based pianist & composer Simeon Walker has quickly emerged as a leading light in the burgeoning Modern Classical scene in his own right, following the release of his first EP 'Preface' and his debut full length album 'Mono'.

Walker’s calm, introspective piano instrumentals invite the listener to find stillness and beauty as much in the spaces between the notes as the notes themselves, as musical stories are woven with each tender, intimate performance.

Since releasing 'Mono', he has completed two wide-ranging European Tours, received substantial radio airplay across BBC Radio 3 and 6Music; performed at Latitude Festival; collaborated with musicians and performers around the world and is the founder/curator of Brudenell Piano Sessions, a regular night of live music celebrating the piano, held at one the UK’s most iconic music venues, the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds. A follow-up project is in the pipeline, in addition to maintaining a busy performing schedule.
