Stilts on the Water, the lullaby



‘Stilts on the Water’ is the latest offering from world folk act, Tailor Birds.  The music is all about shifting positive energy to others, inspiring and connecting people to something good, in a world that is constantly changing.  After the release of album 2, ‘Stilts on the Water’ is an interlude, a lullaby, a sound that links past albums, and shines a light on the Tailor Birds future.

‘Stilts on the Water’, music to fall asleep to, and to wake up rejuvenated, it also features the full-length version of ‘White Feather’, written at a time of chaos, of upheaval, a time when many people were struggling, but at a time of positive change.  Any purchase comes with seeded paper, holding the new single, White Feather.
