Also featured on the recordings were Carles Riba (Bass Guitar), Carli Kapff (Acoustic Guitar) and Marios Takoushis (Piano).

It’s difficult to know where to begin to introduce you to my second album.
So much has happened in my life in the four long years since I released my debut album, Arcadia. The latter event coincided with the end of a seven-year relationship I’d been in, and marked the beginning of another, and a period of great personal development and growth. This album tells the story of those four years and is my most personal work yet.
When I started to think about making this new album, one of the things I wanted to achieve the most was to reflect these big changes and how I have developed as an artist and songwriter since Arcadia. Consequently, I started completely afresh and pulled together a brand-new team, central to which is composer, Charlie Mole, with whom I have co-written and co-produced all the songs on this album.
Charlie’s main occupation is writing soundtracks to major television series and films such as Mr. Selfridge, The Importance Of Being Earnest, Othello, Dorian Gray and The Sopranos. However he has also written and produced songs for some of the world’s most successful artists including Chaka Khan and Kylie Minogue. As a result he brought to this album a unique and incredible combination of skills which drove an evolution in my sound, exactly as I had hoped would happen!
Additionally I wanted to infuse every aspect of this album with the highest quality possible. Therefore, I chose to record it with one of the finest session orchestras in the world – The Chamber Orchestra Of London, and one of the top session choirs – RSVP Voices. We recorded in one of the best studios there is – Air Lyndhurst Studios (Lyndhurst Hall), with renowned conductor, Alastair King (Harry Potter, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Downton Abbey), at the helm. Paul Golding (Downton Abbey, The Lord Of The Rings, Inspector Morse), one of the industry’s most sought after engineers, was in charge of capturing everything and mixing and mastering it all afterwards.
In total, forty instrumentalists and sixteen choral singers were recorded so it was a monumental experience for me and an enormous privilege to work with a truly world class team.
I have put my heart and soul into this album and I am immensely proud of it so I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it. Thank you so much for helping to support me to continue doing what I love most!
