about

The album evokes the bitter sweetness often felt during the winter and particularly at Christmas and New Year. Like many, the festivities over winter bring a mixture of emotions and memories. From the inner child’s wonderment at the magic in the air when waking up to snow, to the melancholy and sadness when thinking of longed for loved ones. These thoughts were very much in mind when I put this EP together.

Recorded in London on 8th November 2015.

Thanks to Tim, Dominic and Jeff for being such great musicians to work with and for collaborating with their ideas. It was great working with you again.

Thanks Dominic for burning the candle at both ends to get the arrangement for Winter Moon just right. You're a star.

Thanks also to Tim Richards for his great support in helping me make this happen and working on all the arrangements for me. Particularly transferring my song Snow Falls into those special dots on the manuscript and those wonderful chords! Also, thanks to him and Sally for putting me up so often on my visits to London. x

Thanks to Nick Trepka for being such a calm influence on everyone from behind the engineering desk and for doing a great job.

Thanks also to Sarah May, sound engineer of Acquired Taste Productions for assistance on recording additional vocals.

Track Name: Snow Falls
Snow falls
gentle soft and light
throughout the night
while everyone's asleep

Snow falls
in the orange glow
of the street lights
they hypnotise me so

I am a child again
heart bursting in
magic wonderment
captive to the snow fall

Flakes melt
crystals on my tongue
feet crunching down
on virgin snow below
