Pittburgh It Is
This song seems to be escaping from any kind of bonds of secrecy by itself so I thought it's probably time to set it free, pre-release, pre-album...The cello is played by the inimitable Anna Scott of Mozzy Green.
This song came about whilst I was travelling in America, on the way from New York to Nashville my Greyhound bus was stopped in Pittsburgh by bad weather around the Appalchian Mountains along with around 10 other buses. So hundreds of us were holed up in Pittsburgh bus station for over 24 hours, for some it was more. The bus station is fairly small and the weather was extremely bad with heavy snow and high winds, it seemed to fit Pittsburgh's bleak industrial landscape and turn it completely magical, at least for this wide-eyed traveller....so me and a few of the other people took a walk in the snow to get out of the crowds and find a bar....

Im pleased to say Ive found 2 excellent musicians to work with into 2011: Rory Clarke on drums and Rolfin Nyhus on bass. We’re working good and hard, avoiding the fully primed traps of mediocrity and blind mimicry to start building a powerful and intricate sound around our pick of the songs Ive written. Im loving every minute.
As a result my gigging schedule will be slowing down considerably to rehearse, write and record; we’ll aim to bring you some sounds and events next year.
