Reviewed by Gareth Hills

Garth Hewitt has been around on the UK scene now for almost 40 years, and his passionate brand of country-tinged folk rock has moved and touched many through the years. He is also involved with the humanitarian organisation Amos Trust, who engage in human rights protection, and work with oppressed communities. 'Moonrise', his latest effort, grew out of these experiences, specifically those Garth had whilst travelling in Nicaragua, Mozambique, and the Holy Land, and the songs are tinged with the restlessness and adventure of a long-distance journey. This would be the perfect album for a road trip. That, however, would be to leave the vast wealth of this recording untapped: Garth's lyrical prowess shines through on every track. From the evocative imagery of "Poets Of Nicaragua", a tribute to those who have brought change in Nicaragua, and to those who continue to do so, to the singable choruses of "God's Revolution Of Love", his mature songwriting cuts to heart of the matter without being burdensome, and he effortlessly squeezes so much life in between his words, without sounding glib.

Latest album from the veteran influenced by trips to Nicaragua, Mozambique, and the Holy Land.

Garth’s new album is joyful yet peaceful; a burst of happiness. It shows him at his best - relaxed, poetic, humourous and prayerful. It is an insight into the spirituality that drives Garth - reflecting the inspiration of silence, his love of the beauty of nature and of prayer, yet his constant
commitment to the ways of justice and peace.

Moonrise reflects visits last year by Garth to three parts of the world - Nicaragua, Mozambique and the Holy Land. It is released to mark 25 years of Amos Trust, the human rights agency of which Garth is Director.
