In Gowan Ring - The Serpent and the Dove

"Psychedelic folk record of the year" Terrascope
"A masterpiece set in stone" Heathen Harvest

"Songs of timeless beauty" Oliver s. Tyr
"In Gowan Ring has reclaimed its rightful throne as king of all autumnal lullabyes" Invisible Oranges

After a 13-year hiatus, In Gowan Ring was back in 2015 with a stunning new album. Le 7ème Ciel is particularly delighted to have released such a gem of a record. Let's hope there is another In Gowan Ring album before 2028!

In Gowan Ring "The Serpent and the Dove" 3 song album preview

Vinyl pre-order
CD pre-order

B'ee is a leading figure in psychedelic folk, who has recorded under the pseudonyms IN GOWAN RING and BIRCH BOOK since the mid-90s. The Serpent and the Dove is his 8th album. It is also In Gowan Ring's 5th album after a 13-year hiatus.

A modern-day troubadour, B'ee makes his own instruments, travels the world and brings back a myriad of musical influences. 60s psychedelic folk and early music remain his main sources of inspiration, though.

"The Serpent and the Dove recounts an alchemical journey through a luminous garden around the Living Tree; there is a serpent… and a dove. A candle flame flickers in the night, illuminating the face of a wandering sage sitting by a stream. He sings a story about a cosmic dancer which he’d heard whispered through the reeds: her rainbow eyes, her bowl of tea, and a field of dreams out of which grew the universe and all that we can see... There are willows; there are masks of leaves; there are thousands of bees." -B’ee

Thirteen years after his previous album, In Gowan Ring continues to enchant and take us back to the essence of what we are.
