The music of Maeran


Dominic Ward is an English Singer-songwriter whose music is regularly compared with artists like Simon-Garfunkel, James Taylor and Cat Stevens. His lyrical and eclectic folk compositions are totally unique in their composition and in the lyrics, which are at once strong and yet subtle.

His debut solo album ‘Simon in the Wilderness’ followed his departure from a musical career with long time friend Stephen Wilson (co-founder of the English folk duo, Maeran), when the latter chose to pursue a monastic vocation with the benedictine monks of Douai, in Reading, England. In similar vein to his compositions for Maeran, renowned for their unpredictable range of musical styles that moved easily from plain chant to contemporary folk and often combined various genres, Dominic has continued to produce music that cannot be confined to a typical style, and this remains one of the great appeals of his work.

Dominic is currently working on a new album of songs entitled ‘Gabriel’s Canticle’. Driven very much by the early influences of childhood musical hero, Paul Simon, it has some fantastic guitar work in and some superb melodies and harmonies to entertain those who look for ballad driven work.

    Hey Wardy, Just thought we'd drop in and thank you for the tribute! Be assured the feeling's mutual! We look forward to many future banjo and mandolin jamming session,s whilst simultaneously peddling our little legs off on bikes with insecure saddles, inducing chocolate comas (and asthma attacks for Becky!) and general larks with Eric the Gnome!
