“well” - being a cause for thankfulness, completely cured or healed, to rise to the surface and usually flow forth, a source from which something may be drawn as needed,an issue of water from the earth.
“The well”, my forthcoming 5th full length studio album is a departure from where i have ventured before..or perhaps it is a returning to my roots. in the past, there was always someone producing me and my music, telling me how my songs, that I had written, were supposed to go.
i decided to go it alone on this record. i decided that i knew in my heart how my songs go, how they should be heard and experienced. at first this was extremely scary and i didn’t feel like i had the confidence to make such decisions or that i truly believed in my own voice.
having grown up on lush harmonic 70’s pop music, the hollies, bread, the carpenters and Melanie on the beach side community of Manly, sydney, australia…I feel like I have finally made an album, self produced, that takes you, the listener on a journey to wellness. my wellness.
having struggled on the path to be free of depression and the childhood trauma that held me down for so long..i have emerged with 11 songs that are my most vulnerable and honest to date. with only acoustic guitars and strings to accompany these pieces i truly hope you will enjoy this album as much as I did making it.
