A short stay in longevity is a life-affirming collection of songs, tunes and poems by writer and musician, Simon Beavis.
Described by one listener as “an epic exploration of the everyday”, it deals with the passage of time, love, loss, regret and finding peace. It captures the resonance of simple events and the importance of living in the present. Part album, part poetry book, this beautifully produced edition includes a CD of 18 original compositions, with music, lyrics and spoken words offset by the atmospheric photography of Alida Bea.
Digital downloads of the album and individual tracks now available at Bandcamp!
