Story

The songs in this recording session (four in total) were all in their infancy and were as raw and tender as my psyche at the time. So on the last day of this rare and special trip home, a family friend said he'd be keen to record a few of my tunes. We ended up recording in a late night home studio session that went into the morning, up until I had to catch my flight out.

The song, "Girl (Without Connections), is probably my most overtly autobiographical. It's a snapshot to how I was viewing myself when I wrote it. In this particular recording, some of my family can be heard in the background chatting and playing pool, which makes it an extra special recording.

Bringing a few of these demos out again. My reminder of the kindness, understanding and love my family provided me in rough times. These first songs were stepping stones towards a different life, one lived authentically!
