In our treehouse on the hills, Wellington howls and rumbles on some noisy nights, the wind rattling our thin wooden walls. We pile old couch cushions and blankets up, and cover the windows with duvets to get a nice vocal. Our lounge littered with leads and pedals, instruments and old Persian rugs. We record through the night.
Daytime noises have found their way into these tracks; its hard to keep the daylight out even when you close the curtains.
This album tells of an artist's journey, a story that starts when she fades to anesthesia. At first alone, she encounters revolutionaries, faces her demons, meets her kindred, finds revelation within the depths of the cat's soulful stare, proclaims her strength, writes an urgent dance-letter, has sweeping visions, rides a camel with Oberon, feels somehow changed but can't quite place her finger on it and possibly needs a hug and a cuddle after all that adventuring.
Emile has beautifully crafted and seduced me with his approach to music, he is a talented composer. I am honored to work with him. As well as having a very kind temperament he is a strong artist with a genuine love for the creative process. I have enjoyed every minute of this project with him. Thanks baby.
And to all the wonderful people that have been a part of my life, given me kisses and a cup of tea when I was tired from life's ups and downs, lent us gear, stopped by in the middle of the night to record, shared a drink or two, you have all inspired these songs.
Now, on with the show.
warm thoughts. Peace
