2012 witnessed the release of his second album The Further Adventures of Vorn Doolette
While it could be simply summarised as gentle, stripped back folk melodies infused with intense and poignant lyrics, it’s not that simple. This is music you can’t just listen to! Prepare yourself, you’re going to feel it as well. As much as you may wish to allow the beautifully constructed and quietly delicate music to flow over you, the urgent passion in the lyrical story commands your attention. This album is about Vorn Doolette, about his life and his love. And you believe it, every word rings true. The album is a step away from him stripping away his skin and showing you the machinery that lies beneath. You experience his joy and crushing experiences in life and love complete with the profanities that real frustrations produce.
This is an album all at once beautiful, peaceful, violent and sincere. The latent aggression in the lyrics is jarring, confronting, and absolutely necessary. In a world of increasingly repetitive musicianship this stands out as a genuine and inspired offering from a truly gifted artist.
