‘Gather Up’ is a compilation album encompassing the singular musical adventures this extraordinary musician has taken over the past decade. Over ten years with Acid Jazz Records Berry has released nine incredibly diverse albums (including one live album). From the tangled-folk rock thickets of ‘Witchazel’ and ‘Kill the Wolf’ (which features the song from which this box gets its name), to the out-there explorations of ‘Music for Insomniacs’ or ‘TV Themes’ retro-kitsch delights, through the soul power in ‘Matt Berry & The Maypoles Live’ or the twilight grooves of ‘The Small Hours’ to the classic pedal-steel songwriting of ‘Phantom Birds’ and the smorgasbord of psychedelic sounds on ‘The Blue Elephant’, Berry’s journey has produced a feast for the ears that twists and turns down more unexpected avenues than most artists could manage over several careers.
