Music: Album: Some kind of honesty
This was such fun. Adele had just stripped most of the music out of pop - and what a stunning result!
Some kind of honesty because so many of my songs start off as words dropping together in my mind trying to express a truth (Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Suzanne Vega, Kris Kristofferson all resonate deeply with me).
This album is just that - a collection of poems put to music.
I wanted a stripped back, solid feel that still held poignancy.
Chris and myself got that feel - and then I just had to add the fiddle and the banjo and all the guitars.
Then I went to Spain to Helen Monks (one of my vocal coaches) and laid down the vocals
