Richard Henshall comments: “I road-tested an early iteration of ‘Yang’ at a Strandberg clinic I did with Plini a couple of years ago. For me, it’s the rhythm that drives this track along, which is a theme that reoccurs throughout all three EPs. I decided to name this track after my cat Yang as he passed away when I was writing it. He would often perch himself on my shoulder during writing sessions and nod his approval when I hit a good chord so it seemed fitting!”

During 2020 Henshall started work on his Mu collection, a trilogy of EPs that explore his love for jazz-infused, intricate instrumental music. The EPs will be released throughout 2024 and promise to be some of his most richly textured, adventurous music to date. Richard is joined by drummer Lang Zhao and saxophonist Adam Carillio, while he handles guitar, bass & keyboard duties.
