April & II

edging closer!

Closed

‘April & I’ the first time round was a pre-emptive teenage rebellion against all the musical sacrifices I suspected I’d have to make once I’d signed a record deal. That was in 2007. I’m nearly 30 now, I have facial hair, hypothyroidism, occasional back problems and I’ve been working as a commercial pop writer and producer where my own personal musical sacrifice has earned me a living.

However, more and more I’ve been craving that rush you get from making music for its own sake. After a few years of nothingness, I had a thought. Then shortly after another different thought appeared. Then another. And another. By the end of 2014 I could count at least 20 different thoughts and observations roughly speaking! This giddy feeling of infinite possibility and inspiration took me straight back to the ‘April & I’ days so it made sense for this new record to be a sequel.

With help from some of the ‘real’ friends I’ve made along the way including Nick Littlemore (Pnau/Empire of the Sun), Luke Sital Singh, Greta Isaac, Orla Gartland, Ralph Brown (Withnail & I/Wayne’s World 2/Alien 3/Star Wars: Phantom Menace) Nelson Bragg (Brian Wilsons band) and legendary poet Stephen Kalinich I have found the courage to document some of my darkest moments and my quest to find inspiration, artistic freedom and my imaginary friend April.
