I decided to record this album last year with the initial idea of releasing a solo acoustic album, the idea then developed into a much bigger beast. Naturally I wanted to work with Grant Henderson who produced the two albums by The Yalla Yallas. We we're long due a proper catch up.
I went in to the studio with the idea of recording a raw 10-Track album in two days - which I did. We sat back and thought there is a lot more to these songs ... so why not develop them further.
I first brought in Kieran and Nick from the Sea Whores, followed by Sam and Adam from King Zepha. It was Adam with a 2am phonecall who convinced me to record 'Burned' after he heard the wrong set of recordings. 'Burned' was a late addition to the album. It wasn't recorded in the initial session. I wrote it after meeting Barbara Pugliese at Glastonbury. I had seen her band Barbarella's Bang Bang perform - I just had to write a song for her - I did and she agreed to come sing it. Will Grinder - My band mate from The Yalla Yallas was the last to join me in the studio - It was such a pleasure to hear him play something other than loud punk rock.
The songs represent different people in my life. I analysed my friendships, relationships, and myself. I know it's cliche but it was like therapy for me. I have a real sense of peace since these came into my life.
