It's finally here! Two years of laughter, frustration, hair colours, takeaway curries, house moves, studio relocations, good coffee, cheap biscuits, late nights, rewrites, agony and tears.
This is an album of mostly my own work. The two exceptions are 'Watch me Fly' which was penned by Mirko and Paul, and 'The Boy You Married', which was a song written by a dear friend of mine, Derek Farrell, that I just had to put on the album. There comes a point in recording songs where as a musician you just don't want to listen to it any more. That never happened here. I'm immensely proud of this and even now, there's nothing on here I would change. It's a deeply personal album, with lots of rough edges, polished surfaces, uneven angles and precise corners.
A little like life!

I love Christmas carols. I grew up singing them with my parents and sisters. For me, Christmas is a wonderful time of sharing hope, joy, love and abundance with the ones who mean the most to you.
I must thank my wonderful Paul, who never stopped encouraging me to keep going throughout this insane project, who let me hijack his surprise planned romantic birthday weekend so I could sing and record Christmas carols literally by candlelight at 2am in a converted old church (he secretly packed the recording gear, because I 'might want to use it'), who was instrumental in teaching me the techie ways of GarageBand and Logic Pro and who stubbornly mixed and mastered this baby until it was the beautiful shiny EP it is now.
