ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
'Road to True North' is a purpose written song that features in my third novel 'Song Bird'. It is written from the central character's perspective - Nikki Mills (aka Mavis Mills). Nikki's music fuses rock with other styles.

Dagny (UK) provided the vocals and Shane Edwards played all the instruments. The song was engineered and produced by Shane Edwards of Karma Sound Studios, Thailand. The vocalist, Dagny, was organised by them for my music project. Shane also played all the instruments used in this song. Coincidentally, Dagny's Facebook description is songbird of the north. My novel is about a songbird from Down Under - Australia.

'Road to True North' is one of two songs used in the movie trailer produced to promote 'Song Bird'. You can see the video at The Christine M Knight YouTube or at my website from 20th January 2015. A third song 'The Flame' also features from the novel; it too is an original song.

Dagny is a Norwegian singer songwriter who has blossomed from a musical background in Tromsø in the very north of Norway. Interestingly, her name means song bird of the north. In many ways her music reflects her personality ‐ a folk/pop sound infused with eternal optimism. Dagny is no stranger to big crowds ¬‐ she opened for Sir Elton John, playing to a crowd of over 10,000 people in March 2012. Later that same year she was the exclusive support for Sting at the Impact Arena in Bangkok and in June of 2014 she opened for Bryan Adams at Clam Castle in Austria receiving an amazing reaction from a crowd of over 9,000. In late 2013, Dagny moved to the UK where she has become a firm favourite on the indie folk/pop scene.

'Song Bird' is the sequel to 'Life Song' and explores how Nikki Mills (aka Mavis Mills) redefines herself, copes with becoming an acclaimed singing sensation, and confronts the deepest longings of her heart.

Be careful what you wish for…

…because reality is often very different from what we imagine in the deepest recesses of our hearts.

Such is the case with Aussie songbird Nikki Mills, formerly Mavis Mills. A working single mom balancing competing demands and responsibilities, Nikki – then known as Mavis – dreamed of the freedom and lifestyle that came with being a platinum record artist.

As 'Song Bird' opens, Nikki’s wildest dreams have come true. An international singing sensation, she has all but transcended the insecurity that accompanied her throughout high school and beyond. In deliberately shedding her former identity as Mavis, Nikki finally takes ownership of all aspects of her life.

Nonetheless, Nikki discovers that her new reality is far different from what she had imagined. Life on tour is often glamorous, but home is where the heart is, and Nikki is determined not to be defined by the fan and media circus that surrounds her.

She struggles to protect her relationship and lifestyle with her beloved son Dan, now ten, while managing vital relationships with her parents, her career manager Shaun, the members of her band, and others. All the while, she yearns deeply for love and a meaningful adult relationship.

The world wide launch date for 'Song Bird' is 2nd February 2015.
