2009 release from The Wishing Tree, an acoustic side project from Marillion guitarist Steve Rothery and British vocalist Hannah Stobart. Nearly 10 years after their debut album, the duo are back with a new collaboration, co-written by Steve and Hannah, with Steve playing all instruments except the drums, as well as producing and engineering it. Rothery and Stobart are joined by Paul Craddick who plays the drums, on material which Rothery describes as a cross between Portishead and Alanis Morissette. Stobart has a lovely ethereal quality to her voice, which shows in the whole recording, and features some delicate and ghostly harmonies, some mandolin and understated guitars providing a backdrop to the vocals. Ostara is a melodic and charming album which will attract fans of Tori Amos, Pentangle, Portishead and obviously, Marillion. EAR.
