The Cunic Ensemble is a song-based music project started in 2011 by John
Clarke who has written & produced songs with various musicians from the
Merseyside area & beyond.
The Cunic Ensemble were born after John had written a batch of songs that
he thought were good enough to be recorded.
The songs were also a vehicle for him to create something different from his
usual work of writing & producing instrumental music for films.
There are no specific styles of music for the Cunic Ensemble, with each song
varying in genre and feel. The songs and music will continue to evolve and
differ with each release.
Although John has written and arranged the songs for the album “The Gram”
released in 2013, the 2015 EP “Blues For You” & the new EP “A Brief
Interlude” they really only came alive with the musicians who gave up their
time to make a big contribution to the recording process & each one of them
gave the album a little bit of their own character & brought the songs to life.
