In early March, we paid Solomon Grey a visit before their concert at St. Pancras Church, London, to record a special live performance of their track ‘Clouds’ from the acclaimed BBC One TV series, The Last Post.
Joe Wilson and Tom Kingston, both from London, are longtime friends who have been creating music together for many years. For the last five of those, they have been releasing music under the name Solomon Grey. The classically trained duo are known for their cinematic and emotive soundscapes, and have not only scored for film and TV, but are also a band in their own right. Their latest album release, ‘Human Music’, is an expression of raw emotion and a musical journey that signifies a particularly difficult time in Joe’s life.
