Just released is a new album from Nathan Haines Vermillion Skies.
This follows on from last year's The Poet's Embrace and in keeping with that release we designed artwork that fitted the feel of a traditional jazz album without the trap of coming across kitch-retro.

Vermillion Skies debuted at #5 in the New Zealand Top 40 album chart (April 5, 2013) between Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake and is available on CD (Super Jewel Box) and limited edtiton 12" LP.
Congratulations are in order for Nathan - The Poet's Embrace won the award for 2013 New Zealand Jazz Album of the Year - the NZ equivalent of a Grammy or ARIA Award. The Poet's Embrace will be released in Europe on the Warner Classics in May 2013.
