januscover500The Janus Game, the new album by Steve Tilston & Jez Lowe will be released on 24 November and is available for pre-order now click here to benefit from the special pre-order offer available until the release date.

STEVE TILSTON and JEZ LOWE are two of the UK’s finest singers, songwriters and guitarists. They have performed together successfully on previous occasions but this is the first time they have written songs together, a radical change for two such singular artists. As Steve says: “Initially we were both wary of the process of co-writing, as for the most part, we are both firmly entrenched in a solitary approach to the creative process. That said, once we had a go at one song, and were pleasantly surprised by the results, we found ourselves on a bit of a roll and out came an album’s worth of material”. That album is the upcoming brand new release ‘The Janus Game’. The title takes its name from the ancient Roman god, Janus, the god of beginnings, gates, transitions, time, doorways, passages, and endings. He is usually depicted as having two faces, on the same body but pointing in opposite directions, since he looks to the future and to the past. Steve and Jez’s music does that too, looking back at the past to extract the best ideas but to the future to let the music develop anew.
