THE ENID IN UNCHARTED TERRITORY

A personal message from Robert John Godfrey

It is a while since I last wrote to you all.  A lot has been going on at The Enid Home as we adapt to the uncertain future facing most professional bands.

I have learned over all these years that uncertainty often throws up unlooked-for benefits as well as unwanted setbacks.  A time came when I decided to make friends with “uncertainty” and find the courage to walk those unknown paths through the woods.

Once I had accepted that no one can expect to be happy all the time I began to find happiness in unexpected places. That was more than thirty years ago.  And here we are in uncharted territory, once again.

And Then There Were Three

The Enid is a unique band whose music will endure way beyond my lifetime; of that I am sure. With the current band members, we have regained a stability not seen since the 1980s because of the brotherly love that binds us.

Come walk with us.  Plans are afoot and there is much to do.

Yours as ever

Robert John Godfrey

ABOUT U

A Little Gift For The Curious

 

A highly successful concert sponsored by The Enidi took place last October at The Met Theatre in Bury, Gtr Manchester to launch the band's new album U. Now there is more to come. A new studio album in conception and a series of shows in 2020

Robert John Godfrey talks about U below. Get U Here


by Robert John Godfrey

The way I compose is "evolutionary", in the sense that I begin with a vision of what I want to say without knowing how or when the music will come to me, or how it will develop over time. I take a walk in the woods and wait to see where that journey leads. The vision I started with was one of Britain at the time of composing, a vision of what goes on beneath the things people tell themselves and say to each other.

When you add to that, the music and personality of Jason Ducker, I can say that together we have been on a truly unpredictable path. For those that are interested in the psychological, the specially commissioned artwork is the key to what U is really all about.

A special thanks to all our fans who have stuck with us during a turbulent and uncertain period in our recent past.

God willing, there is much more to come.
