Wish on


OSTARA is the second album from the fruitful Wishing Tree project.
A mixture of folky leanings and prog rock, Ostara is blossoming with meticulously crafted songs - not a surprise as songwriter Steve Rothery is one in Marillion.
His effortless guitar work coupled with the glorious vocals of singer Hannah Stobart make for an enjoyable listen, if a little unchallenging.
However I have to say it's all a little "hey nonny" for my liking - though it could never be, I picture Ostara's recording session as Rothery with a wizard-like beard playing guitar in a chainmail suit, with Stobart dressed as a medieval princess singing while dragons soar and swoop overhead.
I wish.
