Many a promising new artist’s potentially difficult second album is billed as “highly anticipated”, but James Heather’s ‘Invisible Forces’ is undeniably so. Following up 2017’s ‘Stories From Far Away On Piano’, the London-based neoclassical pianist and composer again delivers an incredibly accomplished and elegant work, meditating on the titular energies that connect us to the world and each other. It’s hard to pick a standout track, but the emotive warmth of ‘In Your Spirit’ has an enveloping richness that’s truly fortifying in these troubled times. Indispensable. CG
