about

A rock opera/concept album examining the impact of environmental destruction, global warming and the subsequent discovery of and relocation to a second Earth-like planet.

Foreword by Wendy Steel
------------------------------
Second Earth is a musical journey that offers a reflection on the issues and problems of our current society. Using the concept album as his vehicle, Ian Rutherford has blended instruments, voice, spoken performance and archival recordings to produce this examination of modern environmental concerns. Drawing inspiration from the concept albums of the 70s, this diverse and thoughtful exploration charts the social trends that might result in such degradation of our planet that our only option would be migration and a new beginning. The album offers a synthesis of sound and thought that will provoke reflection on society’s leadership and direction.
