"Lullaby" - the debut song from my online project
So go to sleep, good night
And let your dreams take flight
I will be at your side
Till the end of time
These are the closing words of my new song "Lullaby" – an ode and birthday present to my young daughter Amelia, who turned two this year.
More about 'The Love & Loss Project'
I had thought I might spend those months in isolation recording the songs for 'Serenades & Odes to a Cracked World (Part 2)' - the eagerly anticipated follow-up to my 2017 crowdfunded concept album - but inspiration had other ideas! What followed were a series of highly personal songs ranging from the joys and challenges of parenthood, reflections on isolation, to the childhood experiences of being different and how I've embraced those differences as an adult. These songs, and others like them, form the basis of a new kind of concept album. Although, I must say, it's not exactly an album, nor an EP, rather a collection of songs that will grow over time until the project finds its own natural conclusion. That's exciting for me as an artist because there’s a certain amount of unpredictability about it all. Instead of me deciding how this will go, I’m letting the songs dictate when and in what way this project will end. It could be months, or even years. It’s an evolving process.
