The Nest 03:08
I was told to live A simple lie Not knowing if We’re living on borrowed time To draw blood from a stone And drag the word Not knowing if They fall in in line You were told to live With unopened arms Had the nest become A ghostly deserted place Had the stork gone out And forgave the pain Not knowing yourself Not knowing your place We were told to live We were told to live To wonder why The moon punctuates the earth So I read the book But It didn’t fit I found god too intrusive And quick to turn on the rain You were meant to live Today You were meant to live

Threads 03:10
When summer comes To stain all the glass Alter in gold Laughter and mirth How could I go Hay barn on fire Sleeping through Pull the thread of a cobweb An hour each day Every time I looked You were looking away You be the present I’ll live in the past Pouring out old photos Of you stood by the bay Where did it go Where did it go I’ll put the memory In this leaving song I sing to remember The evening astray But you should hear something better To end your day End your day

about

Written and recorded 2020-2022, in too many rooms and with too much distraction.

For Rachel, my guiding light through the darkness.

- -

To sum up a body of work, a collection of songs or a single piece of expression is hard. I can't claim these pieces document a particular place, lived experience or period of time but I can say they were written strongest in the moments I was overwhelmed by the world.

Much of this was written during a period I spent having returned to my childhood home, amongst cobwebs, creatures, artefacts and memories I didn't recognise.

I found myself in a life-hiatus, trying to move closer to a loved one during a pandemic and battling a physical illness that hampered my guitar playing and energy.

I found myself exploring faith during these periods, despite the most open mind I found any God to be too intrusive. There was no system that could explain the things humans experience in their lives and the things I saw and heard around me.

This humble collection of songs is my attempt to understand these things, to understand how experience shapes us and most importantly, how our own lived experience can be used to better understand another's.

The most important thing is to love and to be loved. To hold sight of this during the most stormy weather and the longest nights.

There’s people abound, smiling no doubt.
