After 5-10 years of hiking in Britain and New Zealand and 3-4 years of writing songs about those adventures, I have finally finished my EP ‘On Mt Luxmore’.
All the songs are about some of my favourite places in the world, from ‘Lily Tarn’ (the instrumental of my EP), which is about a spot on Loughrigg Fell, The Lake District to ‘On Mt Luxmore’, which describes the stunning Fiordland in New Zealand.
Some of these songs have sat waiting to be finished for a long time, mainly because inspiration is a fickle thing, but thankfully this summer the ideas have come thick and fast and I recently enjoyed a 12 hour day in the studio – it’s hard to stop sometimes!
I’ve also collaborated with my girlfriend Hannah Watts who provided the flute playing on ‘Lily Tarn’, so with that song expect something a little different than my normal folk/rock sound. In short expect folk, not rock on that one!
Here is a trailer featuring short clips of every track on the EP:
