Our Children's Author, Ant Ravenwood: on the BBC 10th January 2015 – Tags: , , ,

978-0-9575621-9-6-frontcoverThe Breathing Wheel is one of our fabulous books for young readers.

Written by the talented singer, songwriter and musician Anthony Ravenwood, it unfolds a mysterious tale packed with suspense and a handful of eldritch creatures, guaranteed to put a shiver up your spine! Click to order from our shop.

As Ant’s first creative love is music, once the book had been published, he set to work putting the tale to music.

Alongside musical writing partner Andy Johnson, the talented Two of a Kind penned a score and created a phenomenal rock opera.

They’ve spent much of the last year recording the soundtrack and preparing a stage show with a small handful of performers and they all set to give a one night only performance on Saturday 24th January 2015.

A concept album, which is what this will certainly end up being, is a studio album where all musical or lyrical ideas contribute to a single overall theme or unified story.  Ant and Andy’s Breathing Wheel will be proudly sat on our CD shelf as soon as it is available.
