New solo album from Caravan's Pye Hastings, From The Half House

Due imminently from Caravan's Pye Hastings is a new solo album, via Pledgemusic.

"I have been the main songwriter, leader and founder member of Caravan since 1968. Until now all of my songwriting has been concentrated on providing material for Caravan. After many years of a solo album being suggested, the timing is now right for me to develop my new songs into making this album. These have been written and are being recorded in my studio in the highlands of Scotland.
