Portmeirion is a tourist village in Gwynedd, North Wales. It was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village, and is now owned by a charitable trust.
In the mid 60s a TV drama was made here called The Prisoner.
After initial poor reviews it went on to gain cult status and brought millions into the local economy.
Thanks to MZ for his work on this including the vocal

PORTMEIRION

Verse
Hitched a ride upon a cloud 
did'nt need a pair of wings
just the warm summer sun
sailing on a gentle wind

Chorus
saw a village in pastel shades
floated down through the haze
Portmeirion Portmeirion sea birds sang
As they danced from wave to wave

Verse
Outside a small café
I nursed a glass of wine
Tall girl in a floppy hat
asked me for the time

Verse
I SAID, it'S  8pm
THEN Botanic clocks chimed
SHE SAID, MUSTdash,Prisoners ON
 channel  6. at 9
B
Heard a violin playing 
a familiar Portmeiron tune
Then i drfted off to another dream
don't the best dreams end to soon

C
Music  outro

Travis,

A very nice listen. The simplicity of the lyric is refreshing. A nice melody,too.

Michael's production and vocal really sell this. Reminds me of something Oliver might have done.

I sent the song to Gwynedd council tourism department and got a nice email in return.
The song was forwarded onto their main offices and i received a further email saying they might be interesting in it for a forthcoming project which is good

Hey John,

Sweet song mate! Loved the ethereal feeling of the production--nice work Mike. This Irish folk direction is a great niche for you John--congrats!

Hi Ed
I agree Irish folk contemporary folk has more prospects perhaps. But it's nye impossible for unknowns to get a deal it seems
As a long standing lover of old country and guys like Alan Jackson i've had to separate these from hard facts. Country music doesn't sell in the UK like it once did.
i got this time and again when i approached publishers
which was frustrating
I like folk/ irish anyway so i tried it.
Cheers Ed
John

Travis (and Mike),

You two just keep knocking it out of the park. What a great feel and sound this tune has! And it looks like you’re getting some play on this, which is well deserved. Congratulations!

All the best,

Deej

Got a further email from Gwynedd Council promotions who are interested in playing the song in some of the tourist sections of the village which is great news

John,

This is magical. Somewhere during the first verse, I was so captivated by the sound, the words and imagery, the arrangement and the singing that I lost all sense of time and place and simply drifted along on the current of your music.

What really captured my attention was how well you used a non-standard song form, one that I don't think I've ever come across before, and it was the perfect vehicle for this wonderful journey.

I really enjoyed where you took me.

Regards,
Noel

Hey Travis and Mike,

Stunning.

Just stunning. I really am lost for words. You took me to a small Welsh village.

This piece works in every sense of the word. Travis, in regard to local folks using your material, yes, it just fits perfectly.

cheers, niteshift

Hey Travis/Mike

I thought this was a very melancholy tune, and a nice tribute to this place.

My first thought was that in the lyric there is nothing that says "this is what it's like in Portmeirion" but I think of the countless other songs where specific places are mentioned, but you couldn't tell where it was or what it was like just by the place listed.

Like many love songs mention places where the two people met, or are currently at, but don't actually say too much about the place itself

So on that note, I liked it, If I may intrude, I thought u could have paid it off a smidge better. I Like the first two lines of the last verse, but I thought the final line didn't live up to the rest.

Just my opinion, but I really enjoyed listening

Hi Fdemetrio
Thanks for your comments.
In all honesty i didn't set out to write a travel blog on Portmeirion.
The visit was in a dream and i needed only to get a couple of subtle references to the villages history/ features.
And left the rest to the melody and Mikes vouce and production.
I'm pleased you enjoyed the listen though. That's good to know
Cheers and thanks again
Travis
