Album Song Stories: The Right Lines

Ah, The Right Lines, a love song to end the album with! The Right Lines was again written quite a while back.  It is about the words we use, our language and how we communicate love to one another.  It’s about a relationship that never finds it difficult to say exactly how they feel and […]

Album Song Stories: Beauty Survives

Post number eight of song stories from ‘Beauty Survives’ is the title song Beauty Survives. The story behind this song is interesting because I kept a lot of the song from the original free-writing I did for it in the first place.  Along the way, I had to decipher what it was about exactly!  If you […]

Album Song Stories: Battlefield

Post number seven of song stories from ‘Beauty Survives’ is the song Battlefield. ‘Battlefield’ is my favourite song to sing live on this album.  The sound resonants with me so well when I’m singing it.  If anyone has ever had a singing lesson with me they’ll know the weird little ways I have about ‘feeling […]

This song for me, whether I listen […]

Album song stories: I’ll Keep You There

Post number two of song stories from ‘Beauty Survives’ is about the song I’ll Keep You There. I don’t mind saying, but I love this song!  I love singing it, I love feeling it.  As I’ve already mentioned with You Lie, so many of these songs are like our lives, a combination of good things […]

Album song stories: You Lie

I’ll be writing a series of short posts on the album tracks on “Beauty Survives”.  The posts will have a small insight behind the writing of each song.  The reason I thought I’d share this is because it took me a very long time to actually get into the studio and record these songs and […]
