I know it’s old fashioned but I like to make albums. I’m not exactly prolific, the last one came out in 2013, the one before in 2005 but every now and then I accumulate an album’s worth of new songs that seem to need their own exhibition space and the next one is finally on its way. The recording is done, the mixing is well under way and the plan is to release it in mid October.
The thing I’ve enjoyed most about making this album is working with the many incredible musicians who live and work in the small part of England I call home. Since I got back from my travels a few years ago I’ve been privileged to share the thriving local music scene with a wealth of fabulous songwriters and performers; fresh and optimistic, oozing with talent and class. I crammed as many of these lovely people into the studio as I could fit to help me make the music and I couldn’t be more proud of the result.
My humble thanks to you all, particularly Seán Anderson, the long suffering producer/engineer at Parousia Productions who mediated my grand plans and crafted a thousand fragmented ideas into 12 coherent tracks.
