The past year has been quite a journey and there are so many wonderful people who have journeyed with us to make it a year of memorable experiences. Over the course of the past three years I have been writing down heart-ache, joy and daydreams as each has occurred – beginning to understand that only when we know who we are, can we be everything we want to be and that this isn't as straight forward as it sounds!
This album is all about overcoming the unhelpful, understanding the truth and believing in better. The people who made this album possible are a big part of the ‘better’. Especially Martin Atkinson who picked us up out of a beer garden and took us into his studio, thanks to his belief in us – we have an album recorded. To all those who turn
up for countless gigs, buy our music and share it with their friends and for those who encourage and support us – Thank you.
With special thanks to John Glanville and Marcus James for all your support.
