Apollo SteamTrain - Single Review: Sail Across The Sky

15 Jan 2020 // A review by Corinne Rutherford
Tauranga based singer/songwriter; Brendan McCarthy from Apollo SteamTrain has just released his first new offering of 2020 with the single Sail Across The Sky. This is a beautiful acoustic love ballad which speaks of the reality of being in a long term relationship.


Sail Across The Sky
 is a further testament to what a talented musical artist and songwriter Brendan is. He has delivered heartfelt elegant lyrics in a single which proves he is staying true to his musical vision. The sound is an acoustic, Celtic ballad that flows elegantly.

The stunning harmony which further enhances Sail Across The Sky is provided by Denise Hyde.

Apollo SteamTrain has a contrasting range of music. I know it well, but I can truly say this brought a wee tear to my eye. An impressive start to 2020.

Rating: ( 5 / 5 )
