lakeman keeps the stripped-back storytelling but embellishes it with a denser, fuller version of his hauntingly melodic style.

Recorded in North Tamerton Church in East Cornwall & featuring the stories of the real people who inspired the album, ’Word of Mouth’ straddles the folk tradition Seth’s music is steeped in & the contemporary folk movement that he has become such a seminal figure of. The sound is deeper & more dramatic than previous albums, in part owing to Seth’s recruitment of his live band: As well as Ben Nicholls, Cormac Byrne, Lisbee Stainton & Sean Lakeman, guests on the album include Leon Hunt playing banjo, cellist India Bourne & ‘Lau’ accordion player Martin Green. limited deluxe version includes bonus tracks, background interviews with the characters who inspired the songs & a making of documentary. "this dartmoor born folk singer's music has moved further from its roots towards a rockier, singer-songwriter sound" 4/5 - q.
