Daughter of the Willow Tree
This is Tom Portman's 7th Acoustic Studio release. This album is full of stories, focusing on our relationships to each other and the natural world; exploring themes of place, mythology, the cycles of life and death and in doing this, making sense of the emotional landscape of my life.
