Angel Bread EP - release coming soon

Songs 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 (no, really, I don't even recall any angsty teenage efforts, though I may just have blocked these from my memory...!), and over the lockdowns of 2020 I decided to use my time under confinement and curfew to continue to experiment with alternative tunings and try to improve my songwriting. I hope that you enjoy 'Angel Bread', my debut EP as a singer-songwriter.
