The Wishing Tree - Very Nice Marillion Side Project

(4 out of 5 stars)
"The Wishing Tree was a side project of Marillion guitarist Steve Rothery and was mainly a showcase for his guitar and the vocal work of Hannah Stobart. Stobart seems to be the main focus of this release and she indeed has a very nice voice. All of the other members of Marillion also appear at one point or another. I have not listened to this in a long time, but I really enjoyed it when I pulled it out. Stobart has a great voice and reminds me a lot of the woman who used to sing for White Willow (her name escapes me at the moment). The song writing is done by Rothery, Stobart and John Helmer who has also collaborated on a lot of Marillion stuff over the years. The music is fairly mellow for the most part, but Rothery gets in a few of his patented melodic solos here and there. I also dig the lyrics. This is an album that came and went without much of a splash, but I would think fans of Marillion or White Willow would dig it."
