This album is the culmination of a passionate love affair.
Writing these outpourings was pure catharsis.
Gigging the arse off them, live therapy.
At times, difficult to perform, other times a sweaty delight!
The recording of the album was a long but exhilirating time for us all.
I had the pleasure of being joined for this, my second album, by musicians that I scoured the land for. I am now blessed to count all these as my friends.
'Shadowlands' will take you on a ride.
Brave the elements.
