Deity 04:01
I said can you take me far from here And with a summer smile she beckons Promising worlds more than these For an undisclosed fee Pushing away the girl on the swing says She says I'm your Deity Weaving magic from her garden green Vines and wines Her vices entwined Dive in swim deep in to my glass Catch the dragonfly she's chasing Queen of every dream She's awakening my destiny Breathe in to me Give your mind to me Now you're free
2.
Snake Oil 03:42
Take two drops of snake oil See me as I am Guinevere, Catherine In the Mata Hari's hand Mistress Mary quite contrary With cemetery bells and deities all in a row So let's march to the drums All the way to the deep blue sea and me, I, kissed and run As you stole the song From the throat of the nightingale Take three drops of snake oil See me as I am Guinevere, Catherine...
3.
Behind the trees in the grass Leafy shaded haze The rapture all around Captures me in its sweet embrace Romances with intoxicating eyes And she lives in a Painted World As fragile as a dream She gives a glance to the sky The everlasting gaze The envy of the flowers Seduces me with heady scent Temporary all-consuming fire And she lives in a Painted World As fragile as a dream Holding everything in her hand Cold as the breeze The breeze
4.
Cascading 05:33
Cascading Rallied by blue-eyed boy Guiding your armies to victory under his charge It's sewn up Is that so That's alright The whole thing's in flux now now A transient glance a furtive exchange Like some keeper of truth waxing volatile And hiding in her Is the lover's gaze you thought was erased In the wake of it all
5.
Deep Blue 04:18
As I lay my head down on your bed Bathed in silver bleeding through the shade While the earth sleeps everything's alright But you said it's colder with the light Here I lay In your deep blue Away Give all yourself away Movie screen spectres haunt your room Forgotten girls whisper I loved you Echoes of a moment lost in time But I can't recall the moment you were mine
6.
Ophelia 04:49
Wade in the water where lilies drift like ghosts This isn't Eden or somebody else's cross Ooh oh Ophelia I leave forget-me-nots By the river under the same old moonlight Look there's a girl in the water Willows bow to greet the silent apparition They always knew she'd do this to herself Come back Come back to me Drown with me Sleep in water Swathed in silver lace For her superstition Reflects the hue Pale and blue
7.
Isolde 05:58
Sublimation is a ruse Caress of steel and foes seduced Denigration hides the truth In servitude to the devil in you Rumination turning blue Irreverent and tragically you Deviation from the fools Stripped by eyes across the room For the last time velvet kiss Velvet kiss is mine Yes if their good word's taken hold It's a knife to pride For the last time Don't believe Don't believe a word Forget all the names you sang In to the blackened night (I meant it when I told you) Don't believe
8.
Sit by me and dream While the leaves fall about our feet Promise to never forget these words Perish in this reverie Reverie seems close Tell me oh tell me Tell me Say no more Auburn fields ignite Memories of sweet goodbyes Midsummer sadness Fall and unite Vanishing with autumn skies How long can you run and hide How many chose to die for you Martyred to your pride

about

It was early 2017 when Louise Patricia Crane wrote the song that would become the title track of her debut solo album, ''Deep Blue''. Having written and recorded with The Eden House the previous year, Louise relocated to Cambridge to begin working with musician and producer Stephen Carey at his Stanton Manor studio.
With a shared vision to create something beautiful and unique in music, the two set about working together.

What transpired from these writing sessions is an inspired and provocative work, drawing upon Louise's expansive musical and artistic influences -  from guitar-driven '70s progressive rock and blues, the baroque sounds of '80s avant-garde dream pop - to rich, lyrical imagery drawn from literature, surrealist horror films of the '60s and '70s, tragic historical seductresses and dreamlike themes of escapism. 

In early 2019 writing and recording continued and Louise brought King Crimson guitarist and frontman Jakko Jakszyk on board to collaborate, providing his distinctive guitar sound and stunning multi-track vocal harmonies on a number of songs throughout the album.
It was then that the legendary Danny Thompson (Kate Bush/Peter Gabriel) would collaborate, the unmistakable sound of his upright bass a fitting end on the closing track of the album, ''The Eve Of The Hunter''.

The assemblage of extraordinary musicians would continue when Louise approached Ian Anderson with a view to him playing flute on the album. Ian's stunning contributions can be heard on the tracks ''Snake Oil'' and ''Ophelia''. Renowned bass player Scott Reeder (Kyuss) joined the ranks around the same time, further enhancing the soundscape on ''Deep Blue'', alongside the faultless rhythm section provided on a number of songs by drummer Simon Rippin and bass player Steve Mercy. Shir-Ran Yinon also provides beautiful violin on muliple songs.
