The Ghost of a Smile

by Elegant Simplicity

Seeing Magic 08:16
I always thought that magic was fake: A tool to fool the easily beguiled Yet here I am standing before you Almost disbelieving what’s right in front of me Seeing is magic And I see you Seeing is magic The unbelievable is true
Connected 01:55


New for 2019 is this latest ELEGANT SIMPLICITY release "The Ghost of a Smile", featuring a stellar cast of additional musicians.

Not a concept album as such - though the songs are thematically linked - and all deal with magic, mystery and the unexplained. It's a very moody album with lots of interesting twist and turns. This is probably our most musically adventurous album, blending progressive rock, hard rock, folk, orchestral and new age into a melting pot of melody.
