After touring “Growing Pains” for the best part of a year I found myself spending some time out in a wooden cottage in the Czech countryside playing with my kids, cooking, messing around and writing songs sat under a tree. I’d pull out my phone and record ideas or even whole songs as they came out with a broken guitar that had been left out there.
I then recorded these new songs in a small studio in September 2012.
I played some of these songs along with some of my phone recordings to friends in London, Prague & New York for feedback etc. with a view to making a new studio album. They kept talking about the feel of my phone recordings and not the studio demos!
These are snapshots of some of those songs. 10 songs recorded on my iPhone so I wouldn’t forget them! Recorded in different places (indoors and outdoors) in October/ November 2012.
