about

It is done. Sora Shima's debut album has finally arrived. You Are Surrounded is the culmination of years (almost 7...) of struggle - from studios being struck down by lightning just hours before the band were booked in, to scraping and restarting the recording process several times, all the while losing and gaining band (and family) members along the way. There were wonderful, small victories followed by major setbacks. Days turned to weeks, eventually months - at times the odds seemed insurmountable. But we did it. Gratitude to those who have directly supported us and made this album, this band, possible. Thank you to everyone for your patient and gracious support. Now - Sit back and enjoy. We poured our hearts into this music.

Dedicated to the memory of Jenni Wright.

The fiercely independent group have self-released 3 EPs, a beautiful 10 inch vinyl 'Empress' and an ambitious longplayer entitled 'You Are Surrounded' (2014). ... more
