Alluring from its opening moments, 'Tangier Sessions' unfolds & elongates, chills out & cuts loose in familiar, yet newly unique ways for Sir Richard Bishop - It's a singular listening experience, even in the crowded realm of solo acoustic guitar albums.

On the lookout for something playable, yet portable, last year while living in Geneva, Sir Richard stumbled into an obscure luthier's shop & came across an old piece - likely made in the mad, final days of the 19th century. The experience of playing it was exquisite - It was as if he'd been enchanted...Or cursed! Later in the summer, in the company of said guitar, Bishop holed up for a week in a rooftop apartment in Tangier, Morocco. He spent his time feverishly playing; at night, the pieces on this record were improvised & recorded. Nobody plays the guitar like Sir Richard Bishop & on 'Tangier Sessions', he's found a guitar that nobody but him plays either.
