‘Bodies’ – out Friday August 16

Bodies is a song I started to write a few years ago as a reflection on past relationships of various types. The ‘bodies’ referred to in the song are those relationships which had ended badly leaving a legacy which has endured as years have passed. The ‘murder’ is more an emotional one, inflicted carelessly on those closest to us. Musically, it’s kind of an urgent folk/country shuffle with some lovely backing vocals from Yuko Nishiyama and Brendan Skinner. Steve Clifford of The Hello Morning also features on pedal steel.

One more day of recording to go folks!  Steven Clifford from The Hello Morning has added his pedal steel genius.  Brendan & Yuko’s sublime vocals are finished.  Stand by for a new single in the next  weeks and announcement of the album release date.
