Nick Harper: Phantastes

June 23, 2022
Music
Richard Nielsen
Returning to The Garage on his latest tour and to perform his latest album Phantastes, we are delighted to be welcoming back the brilliant Nick Harper this June!

Phantastes inhabits an ethereal realm and explores the parallels of the seminal 19th-century fantasy novel of the same name by George MacDonald and the beginnings of Nick's own love story from 1982. The album was recorded and is performed live on solo electric guitar, simultaneously triggering percussive electronic soundscapes.

This is the dream-like backdrop to a coming-of-age story set on the edge of an ancient magical forest and a year-long journey that culminates in a kiss… Divorced from 2020 in many ways, the album and the live show have been enthusiastically supported by fans seeking a temporary refuge from the here and now.

Find out more about the album, and Nick Harperhere.
