If songs are like tattoos, albums are like homes. Years of history, thoughts, journeys, places and people people all bundled into one package. Moving house always makes me reflect and look back on the years I spent in that place. It seems like songs always come out of that. Looking back, I can see my life and homes from 2004 – 2010 in the songs on Until Autumn Leaves. The years we spent living in a house by the woods are captured in Growing Wild. Now we are moving on again. It’s time to say goodbye to this chapter of our lives and move on to the next one.
This means it’s time for a new album. There are only six songs to share from the five years we lived in Saxon Wood Road. When we moved there, one of the things we loved about the house was the view from the back of the house. The cover for this collection of songs shows that view as it was, before it was developed.
These songs are personal; they are about people. They also contain images and sounds of the places I’ve been and the things I have done. I hope that you’ll be transported as you listen to them:
You can also find it on Spotify, Google Play, iTunes, Amazon and all the usual places.
Here are some more photos I considered for the cover:
