Ireland describes A Twist Of Time as 'a concept album for the twenty-first century'.
The themes are Time, Money, Life and Death. The songs were written while the album was taking shape in the studio. There is a spontaneous and almost organic feel to the tracks. Subject matter is as diverse as warfare, 911, global recession and the transience of life. There are also a couple of love songs in there too!
Ireland began performing in the 60s and has remained fresh and involved with current music. As he tells us, '...some of the musicians on the album are quite young. Amazingly talented, but many of them are under 25. The energy they create and the spontaneity of their musicianship is astounding. I felt truly privileged to share my music with them'.
