‘We Found Prester John’ Out Now

The Legendary Prester John is back! Seven years in the making and we’ve finally found Prester John but what’s seven years when you’ve already waited 875? October 23rd, 2020 saw the release of ‘We Found Prester John’.

Drawing on everything from medieval history to the exploration of space for its inspiration, ‘We Found Prester John’ is an album about trauma, recovery and hope against the odds that owes its musical influences to everything from Bowie to Department of Eagles, Neil Young to Al Green and Man Man to Holst. Beginning as a full-band rock album and ending as an orchestrated strings piece, Prester John hopes to have created music that links genres rather than comfortably fitting into them.

‘We Found Prester John’ features a number of Irish musicians from various musical backgrounds including Bazz O’Reilly and Aidan Mc Kelvey (The Gandhis), Caimin Gilmore (Sun Collective), Jethro Pickett, Aaron Mc Grattan (Strike Action/Disco Participation Matrix) and Leigh Duncan.

The album release is accompanied by a new video from Ursula Woods for the album’s third track ‘A Sky Apart’. Though it was filmed before the pandemic, the themes of recovery and hope in the face of the relentless march of time ring especially true.
