What people have said about Candlelight and Empire:
‘[…] a masterful and hugely entertaining piece of musical storytelling.’ ‘[…] an uplifting and engrossing album that doesn’t really fit the accepted prog genres.’
‘[…] an incredibly gifted instrumentalist. […] a heartfelt and recognizable voice, another trademark that helps to provide Looking Glass Lantern [with] an extra stamp of quality. Well-written, composed, arranged, fully performed and produced […]’
‘This is very much traditional story telling prog at its finest […]’ ‘If you enjoyed the first two albums this is a worthy return from Looking Glass Lantern, if you’ve never heard them before, then it’s a great place to start.’

I want to share my albums with as many people as possible. If you like what you hear, please make a purchase! Producing a full album takes a great deal of effort and determination, so even if you only buy a single track, this will really support what I’m doing. Thanks very much.
