Honest EP (Sunburst Sessions)

Maybe this is a surprise or maybe it was completely predictable but now that the last of the videos for the Sunburst Sessions are out, I have released the audio of the sessions as an acoustic EP, now available on all major music platforms…

You can find the EP here! Please, please take a listen, add it to your playlists, or even buy it if you feel so inclined! All of these things help me to keep making music and that means the world to me. This is all I’ve ever wanted to do and now that I’ve started doing it, I never, ever want to stop. It’s the kind of magic that can’t be explained, only felt. I hope you know what I mean when I say that.

I hope you enjoy the EP. Please let me know what your favourite tracks are. And if you have any blog or music requests, please leave a comment or send me a message! As much as all of this is for me, it’s also for you as a reader and I’m always open to hearing your thoughts.

Honest (Sunburst Sessions)

And here we are. The last video… The fifth and final in the Sunburst Sessions videos, ‘Honest,’ is now up on YouTube!

While this song was originally written on a keyboard, there’s something really joyous about singing it with a guitar. The guitar just gives it this effervescent energy, this sense of it coming to life. I love it. It’s one of my favourite songs to perform, not that I’ve had many opportunities to perform recently, of course. Anyway. This was the last song we recorded that day and it was a real high note, pun not intended. I was absolutely exhausted (so exhausted that the only way I could help pack up after was to sit on the floor with the cables – I was literally too tired to stand up, plus I thought I might faint if I didn’t sit down) but it was a great day and it was so much fun. I’m really grateful for the whole experience.

Thank you to Richard Marc for accompanying me and for his part in the filming (Sunburst Sessions), Olivia (Olivia B-S Photography) for her work as the primary videographer of this video, and Nicky Trill for engineering.

Back To Life (Sunburst Sessions)

The fourth in the Sunburst Sessions videos, ‘Back To Life,’ is now up on YouTube!

While it would’ve been interesting to mess around with this song on piano, I love the vibe of this song when I perform it live and I perform it live on acoustic guitar; I love the warmth and the energy. And stripping it back to just a vocal and acoustic guitar arrangement really allows the lyric to take centre stage. Lyrics – and the stories they tell – are so important to me so I always enjoy the opportunity to put them at the forefront of the performance.
