The Story

When François Evans was 18, he collaborated with a friend, John Porter, who wrote lyrics to several songs, asking François to set them to music under the duo name After Magritte. François lost touch with John, but has since recorded them in an album of lavish, emotive pop ballads as they might have sounded.

The more you listen to these songs, the more they grow on you.


The album has been mastered lovingly by Mike Marsh at The Exchange in Devon.
