Piano makes up the backbone of Loner's work. Yet electronic interference, fuzzy glitches, Binatone samples and occasionally some choice beats and acoustic guitar underpin the organic qualities of piano.

‘The sense of dislocation is palpable, the sense of yearning unavoidable, the need to disappear overwhelming.  Smith creates an atmosphere using almost-not-there electronics, but this is far from electronica; in fairness, to tag it as anything would be to close off the infinite possibilities offered by Smith's disconcerting vision. ' Logo Magazine

‘Drawing on his classical training his love of electronica and his Tom Waits/Nick Cave influences to build fuzzed-up moodscapes and poetic pop vignettes that balance a melancholic core with breathy, human vocals and a very personal narrative...very original and in places quite exceptional.'  DJ Magazine

‘Geoff has created an album of such intense beauty that ‘soundtrack-y' is almost an insult. Dramatic, emotive and, quite frankly, darkly genius.'  The Fly (Ones To Watch)

‘Loner have captured melancholy beauty, wrapped it in silk, put it on a pedestal and then written a guitar based homage to the wench...ethereal excellence.'  Blowback

‘Stunningly beautiful and clever. With its organic base from the piano and acoustic guitar, there are electronics that match the most ethereal of the Aphex Twin's ambient moments...this appeals to all with a soul and ears for tales of woe. Juice Magazine

 

Loner is an atmospheric, mysterious and beautiful album with reflective and passionate melodies, restrained vocals and stunning piano arrangements. A hypnotic mix of instrumental and vocal songs which take inspiration from a myriad of unknown faces and unwritten stories. Loner is the feeling of space behind everything we don't talk about. Behind the everyday routines. In a certain sense, what we think most true, warped tight shut like doors.

Loner, a.k.a. Geoff Smith, first started playing the piano aged 8 and his playing evolved under the tutelage of Louis Vause (Transcopic Records), the renowned New Orleans Blues pianist. His earliest musical influences include Prince, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen and Johnny Cash - solitary artists who reflect their own stories through lyrical story telling, artists that bring you into their own world. And for Loner, his songs are a way to ‘bring other people into the places I see, the things I need to talk about'.
