"Imaginary America" is just a snapshot of a journey seen through the eyes of Gareth Rhys Jones and Gerald Masters, from across the pond.
In 2014, "A Darkened Love" - the first new song by Rescue Party in 8 years was released on iTunes.
Gareth is working with Gerald's US agent Fabian Fernandez as executive producer to oversee the release of Gerald's song catalogue. "Dreamtime" - songs dating from 1987/88, was released in 2010. This was followed up by "Strike a Light" in 2011 and "Terminal Life" in 2012. Going forward, every year on Gerald's birthday (February 17) will see a new release.
Better known as John Richardson from the seventies band, "The Rubettes," Jayadev sought out Gareth to help him create a "definitive" album. Together they created an album described as "a fusion of eastern and celtic influences, on a bed of orchestration." Aidan O'Brien (Uillean Pipes, Banjo, Whistles, Guitars) and Joe O'Donnell (Violin) made most welcome additions to the album. Gareth's role was Producer, Arranger and Orchestrator.
Jayadev, Gareth and Aidan performed the album for the festival crowds at Bhaktivedanta Manor, to celebrate Janmashtami in August 2008.
In 2010, Jayadev once again enlisted his services to create two new albums, one fully arranged and orchestrated, and one only featuring vocal arrangements and beatboxing. Jayadev has toured these across the world, assembling 107 Mantra Choirs worldwide so far.
"In Your Arms" became a regular favourite with fans, whilst "Paper In The Flames" saw further collaboration from lyricist Joanne Gill and CBSO violinist Claire Horgan.
