ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album has been inspired by many events, stories and experiences I have encountered since leaving home. I have selected these songs as they reflect the roller coaster of my own feelings, thoughts and emotions. My writing varies so much, from Love songs to tributes, ballads to impressions and each one has its own sound.

All performances have a strong emotional connection and the 'Ukulele' songs in particular have a more personal feel. Listeners will be moved and engaged by the connection to the words and sentiments carried by the haunting vocals.

‘Lions Den’ Prior to this song I hadn’t written a lot at all, maybe even a few years. Most of this song all came at once. I think I was feeling frustrated and the writing just poured out. I suppose I was feeling imprisoned by my own thoughts and needed to release through song writing. I suppose you can hear this in the writing/vocals and tone of the song!

‘By the Well’ was written at the same time as ‘Lions Den’, a love song at heart, with the playful notion of a new love. Singing loving songs, dreaming, night skies, and all of those Shakespeare esk ideals. It started off with just me and a piano, but soon developed in to instrumentals and beats!

‘Black and White Sunset’ is one of more recent songs, and of course the title to my album! I adore Sunsets, I find them enchanting. Essentially a love song, the old romantic in me wanted to write something pure and from the heart. The world is a busy hustling place. The idea of sitting watching a sun set rise or sun set with a new love got me thinking. The stillness and the wonder of them, whereby ‘you don’t need to say a thing, the beauty is enough.

‘Run’ is a song which all came complete without any edits. Daydreaming melody, lyrics flung into my head. I grabbed the mic and sang. I added the vocal harmonies which gave a haunting spin to it. I didn’t add any arrangement to it. The feeling of being trapped in a relationship and the fight to become the person you were destined to be, runs through this. No pun.

'Put the lights on' was inspired whilst out walking around my hometown around Xmas time when I was shocked by the many people who are homeless, so naturally I wanted to write about it and bring some awareness.

‘T-Shirt’ The melody of this song and the lyrics came to me as I was washing up! It’s a little sweet idea which developed about missing a loved one, with the notion of wearing the loved ones T-shirt when they are away.

‘Down by the River’ was I believe one of the first songs I ever wrote at 19?! Young love which doesn’t last and moves on! Heartbreak and the transition to adolescence. Essentially a love song and about moving on to new loves! Water themed which gives the notions of romanticism.

‘Talking to a Barbie Doll’ just oozed out very quickly. I originally played three chords, repeated throughout, no set structure to it, I liked the choppy and distinct nature. Definite more serious under tones and observations in society which led me to write this. Stripped from material possessions who are we? Complete as we are.

‘Take me to the River’, another water element song! This has extreme gospel references of vocal execution. This song spurted out on Christmas 2016. I ran upstairs because it just launched into my head, melody and lyrics. The whole deal. I remember feeling extreme emotion, so just had to record on my phone for later developments. I wanted to keep it acapella so I could really feel the emotion. I believe slavery is core subject in the song.

'Capsize Fear' followed in the days of the Ariana Grande concert shootings that occurred at the Manchester arena in the UK. I felt so overwhelmed by emotions! Shocked again at such brutality directed purposefully at children! I wanted the song to be delicate and fragile.

‘Are you missing her?’ Jealousy, corrupt relationships! Well I wrote this around the same time as ‘Down by the River’, so again teenage angst I think was the central theme here! When love turns sour…!

‘Different’ was written around the same time as ‘Down by the river’, and ‘Are you missing her’. Love song at heart, and exploring the themes around young love! It was interesting to see the development through the months writing these songs. Good times : )
