Hello everyone, Here’s a link to a Pledger Only exclusive – a demo of a new song from the album called Lover, Trouble Knows My Name. Thought I’d pass it on as a thank you for everything you’ve con...

Smoke

So as promised I wanted to introduce you to some of the songs from The Latchkey Kid in the run-up to it’s release in August. We’ll start with Smoke, one of the earliest I wrote for the album.

Let me preface this by telling you that I cannot play the piano. I think that was kind of the point when it came to writing some of the songs this time around. I was in something of a funk, and I wanted to be challenged into writing again. The simplicity of my playing brought a new naivety that I hadn’t felt in a while.

My mum had recently passed and I took a trip to the coast, a beach resort that I spent a lot of my childhood at. I was walking what felt like an age from the beach to the water’s edge – it must have seemed so much longer as a child! There wasn’t a great deal of people around, and I took a moment to take in the stillness of it all. It was then I felt this history on my shoulders, almost like I could feel my parents’ presence. I’ve never been one to believe in any of that sort of thing but there was an acceptance of some sort, I felt at peace with it and the next day I wrote Smoke. It’s about all of that, but it’s also a reflection on so much more. It dropped out of the sky, into my head and out of my mouth!

Hope you like it folks.
