Heartwood (a full nine months in the recording and mixing) contains fourteen tracks (all songs written by the band) in a style which the band describes as "Woodland folkadelica". The album contains a brooding set of songs evoking the woodlands and fields through tales of Love and Hate; War and Peace; Death and Loss; Revenge and Redemption and then some more Love.
Heartwood was initially released on CD in two separate editions. A limited individually handcrafted edition and a jewel case edition. The limited handcrafted edition version had a cover made from 50 separate cut-out pieces painstakingly put together to make a guitar playing owl and housed in a hand numbered gatefold CD case (made from eco-friendly 100% recycled chipboard.
"The Rowan Amber Mill and their album Heartwood come across like a British version of first album-era Espers - all melodious vocals, earthly splendor and quiet grace." - Shindig Magazine.
"If you've a taste for haunting, willowy, textured psych-folk in the manner of Trees and Trader Horne, this may be down your lane." - RocknReel magazine.
"Lovely stuff! Get it before it's gone." - Phil McMullen, Terrascope Online.
