For the last year or so I have been working on some new songs. I started out slowly, recording them one by one at various stages in my home studio. I finally have a collection of songs that will be ready for release in the second half of the year.
I’m recording the album at Stoep Studio (for the third time) with Dan Roberts and Barry Berk. But this time round I am working with musicians I have never worked with before and I am discovering the beauty of what happens when you bring together musicians with such different styles and backgrounds. We’re in search of a meeting place where acoustic instruments can be carried by the rhythm of gospel and soul. A hoedown in a shed filled with trumpets, tambourines, banjos, guitars and the intertwining voices of folk, soul and rock n roll.
This album is both an extension of and a departure from the songs you have heard me play before. Its something familiar and something new. Its a piece of me right here, right now and I can’t wait to share it with you.
