From the adventure of a child's mind at the excitement of going on holiday, to a chance meeting full of possibilities that can never be anything more, from ordinary people caught in an extraordinary conflict to what might lurk behind those suburban net curtains, to leaving the earth to escape man made destruction, each song tells a different tale. Mixing folk, hard and progressive rock to evoke the storylines, Ark's unique line-up, including flute and guitar synth rather than a keyboard player gives the band a sound all of their own, yet distinctly English. "I always felt that the band and it's music never got the exposure and reward it deserved." says Jowitt, known for his success with iQ, Jadis, Frost* and Arena. "I'd long wanted to try to get the songs out to a wider audience. When Steve got in touch last year, it seemed the ideal opportunity. I hadn't expected Pete and Tony to be up for it, but a chance meeting with Pete in the pub showed exactly the opposite to be true."
