The new EP ‘Quiet Majesty’ by Jacob Hauge Mateo and Ben Bushill brings together two richly creative artists in effortless co-creation. ‘Quiet Majesty’ is a unique and powerful combination of spoken word and transcendent music.
Jacob’s sensitive playing lifts and frames Ben’s deep, intimate voice on a layered and subtle bed of sound. The effect is mesmerizing, leading the listener on a journey of enchantment and feeling. Unusual and affecting, vulnerable and brave this project stands out as something different. A jewel to savour.
