So in May I went down to Kore Studios in West London and recorded a live version of Underwater with Scott Matthews and Danny Keane. This year has been a slow starter for me, recovering from health issues and a bereavement I’m taking it slow and easy, it’s a weird thing isn’t it? You think it’s all going to pour out into the music, and maybe it will, but actually I’ve needed the sunshine and the community that friends and family bring. One of the things I did want to do was to see Underwater played in this way; despite touring together we didn’t manage to play Underwater together so this was particularly ace for me. I’m still knocked out by Scott’s generosity and incredible spirit. This song for me is about how sometimes I feel like I’m underwater and I feel disconnected, but this song is about seeing the beauty in that space and occasionally, if I let myself relax into it, rising up and feeling embraced.
It’s out there on spotify and all the rest, enjoy xx
From our stint at Sofar Sounds, Camden. Sean Genockey on guitar, John Hogg on bass and Andy Treacey on drums. We’ve since played at Camden Rocks Festival and then at Camden Oxjam in October. The mecca of live rock music in London 🙂I’ll be back there in November with Sean et al.
Up in Glasgow I played a show at the gorgeous SWG3 with Calum Ingram, who I met at the Jack Bruce Memorial Concert set up by Malcolm Bruce. Since then Calum has accompanied me on the cello at my launch at the Slaughtered Lamb and we’ve remained friends since.
