Sleeping Man Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Gareth Dickson makes slow-moving acoustic songs and releases them as homespun records. He's performed guitar duties for Vashti Bunyan's live band now and then, suggesting a modest songwriter with a patient mind. There are also hints of an ambient influence in Dickson's work, as he brings in synthwork and manipulates his guitar notes. 'Invisible String' collects together the finest moments in Dickson's tour of Europe from two years ago.

Following in the success of his 2009 release ‘Collected Recordings’ which was a purist ambient/acoustic record made with minimal production, an acoustic guitar, vocals and a tasteful amount of reverb, soulful folk acoustic songwriter Gareth Dickson has taken his music even further back to basics with ‘The Dance’. Stripping back all unnecessary instrumentation and technology leaving nothing between the listener and the artist but the chilling, gloomy echoes of the guitar, the vocals and the room.
