More information: Richard Barbieri ‘s amazing musical career has spanned four decades, taking him from the seminal recordings he made with Japan in the seventies right through to the current worldwide success he is enjoying with Porcupine Tree. Stranger Inside is his second solo album. Barbieri wrote and produced the album himself but is assisted by a host of familiar faces from throughout his career. Steve Jansen (Japan, Nine Horses) mixed and co arranged the album, it was mastered by Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) and features guest musician appearances from Gavin Harrison (PT) and the legendary double bass player Danny Thompson, whose incredible CV includes Pentangle, Nick Drake, T Rex, Kate Bush, John Martyn and many, many more. In addition to this nearly all tracks, though instrumental in nature, feature the sampled voices of Tim Bowness (No Man) and Suzanne Barbieri. To complete the package the artwork and design has been created by Carl Glover and Luigi Colasanti (both longtime PT collaborators) .
