My football team & coaches have been fantastic and are helping me raise awareness of this lifelong chronic disease we recently climbed Ben Nevis in aid of the Catherine McEwan Foundation and I managed to do it too. Without Crohns I wouldn’t have met some wonderful people including Derek & Julie McEwan and can’t thank them enough for all they do and also for asking me to write about my journey so far with IBD. Here’s to staying well.
Upon my first listen of ‘s new album I was hooked, instant gratification. Having never heard the band, I didn’t understand a single word but I just kept listening because I was so captivated. Lyrics of real meaning eventually began revealing themselves as I played each and every track over and over, until this album became an essential part of my daily life (maybe dramatic, but a testament of how good this album is). Now the lyrics are clear and I’m still listening to Des Ark every day.
In my opinion, if you enjoy the varied sounds of bands like Denali, Elliott, Ester Drang, Erin McEwan or Despistado you are almost guaranteed to like something about Des Ark. Des Ark strikes a unique blend of chords, literally and figuratively, in this one album that put me through a complex composition of emotions.
