Angel Bread EP - OUT NOW!
2020 was definitely an unprecedented year for (I think I can safely say) people throughout the world. It was right before the first series of lockdowns that I picked up my dad's guitar and realised that I /still/ had never figured out how to play one.
After several attempts to force my hands into what seemed to me like impossibly contorted positions, I admitted defeat. Then it occurred to me to try re-tuning the guitar - if I couldn't make my hands make the correct notes, why not start with the ones I wanted already in place...?
The result of this experimentation was 'The Wood Song' - the first 'real' song I ever wrote, and over the lockdowns of 2020 and 2021 I decided to use my time under confinement and curfew to continue experimenting with alternative tunings and try to improve my songwriting. (This might have involved some hilarious-in-retrospect 'allo 'allo-style meetings in which instruments and recording equipment were exchanged at arm's length in back alleys, out of sight of any hovering gendarmes!)I hope that you enjoy 'Angel Bread', my debut EP as a singer-songwriter.
