I released my debut album "Disarm" in September 2010. I'd been collecting the songs together for a couple of years, gradually focusing my mind, building my confidence and getting ever closer to making the music that was playing in my head a reality, a tangible thing others could listen to. Little did I imagine what adventures those songs would take me on, but I've enjoyed travelling around the world watching them take on a life of their own ever since.

As the fifth anniversary of Disarm came closer I started making plans to revisit some of the songs, tenderly reworking the tracks that feel the most resonant to my current self, and the ones I felt would benefit from a different sonic approach. After producing my third album "Direction Of Travel" (out March 2016) I felt it was high time to roll up my sleeves and tackle songs from my debut that never fully realised their potential.

It's about wisdom and hindsight, I suppose. As Kierkegaard said, "Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards."
