Album Notes
This is my debut EP as a singer-songwriter. Having played other people’s music for decades, this is me finally breaking free to write my own songs.

I’m into everything from classical violin music to Wolf Alice, Pink Floyd and Willie Nelson - with special mentions for Leonard Cohen, Lou Reed, the two Nicks (Nick Cave and Nick Drake), and the Beatles.

Like all musicians, I’ve been influenced - but I work hard to be as authentic as possible. We give each song what it needs by way of instruments and style. They’ve all evolved differently, sometimes in strange ways and with complete disregard for genre compliance.

The EP was recorded with my newly-formed Linden Tree Band. I’m lucky to count Simple Minds’ producer Jez Coad as my good friend and long-time musical colleague. Jez worked his mighty magic on the songs, for which I’m hugely grateful.

Hugh McManners - vocals and guitars
Steve Turner - bass guitar
Jeff Walker - drums

Recorded and produced by Jez Coad
