New Album – Take a Deep Breath

Debut album Take A Deep Breath released on 1st May 2021 on all digital platforms. 

Developed, recorded and produced over a period of 18 months from September 2019 – Take A Deep Breath is the ambient and downtempo album I’ve always wanted to make. 

Having been influenced by electronica acts like Air, Bliss, Zero 7 and Enigma – as well as more traditional singer/songwriters and celtic artists – the sound of Take A Deep Breath draws inspiration from all these genres to produce an album filled with chilled grooves, lush strings and piano, subtle guitar and some amazing vocal performances from two incredible artists – Herica and The Wolf, and Pete Rawcliffe.

The album has been written to chill out to, to feel like you can take a step back, take some time away from whatever situation you find yourself in, to reflect and appreciate what you have, and what is important. After some serious mental health issues in late 2018 into early 2019, subsequent breakdown and major life reassessment – it was the perfect remedy and very cathartic for me to write this album. Along with trusted friends and new musical acquaintances – the ABL Collective, who’s talent and desire to see this succeed along with me is something I’m eternally grateful for.
