Before I met the guitar, I wrote poems and strange stories. I studied literature and was happiest with a pile of books in my arms.
Then I discovered the craft of songwriting, the art of communicating a whole world within a limited frame. The way a melody brings a word to life, the way music changes the room.
'Kiss The Witch' is an album about the wild woman that I kept bumping into and her many guises.
'I Became a Student of Love' is a collection of songs I had buried in my voicenotes and forgotten about. I rediscovered them on a long train journey and decided they needed an outing. Each song has its own story which I'll tell you about sometime, on the podcast.
