Well it’s mid-Feb already, Cadenza has been doing really well, I can’t tell you how chuffed I am with the response. When I started recording last summer I only intended to do an acoustic EP, but I guess I knew deep down that I had too many songs, so I thought what the hell….let’s do an acoustic album. I had been listening to a lot of acoustic stuff around that time…especially Nick Drake, Gillian Welch….Graham Coxon’s Spinning Top album….& also Damon Albarn’s The Good, The Bad & The Queen album, and though you cannot hear it I’m sure they influenced my writing around that time.
Writing can be a curse sometimes, but also cathartic…..so I’ve been writing again (actually I’m always writing!), and have reverted back to the electric guitar and the piano. I’m already excited about the way the new tunes are shaping up….hopefully I can unleash one or two on you at gigs this summer.
Here is another lovely review of Cadenza by a great site called Mojophenia. Check it out here
