about

When I received the news that the funding had been awarded to this project I was sat waiting for a plane to Japan having just played at Hong Kong Arts festival. I think it was fair to say that I was fairly emotional at this is a subject close to my heart. I was also very daunted by the challenge of learning 27 tunes from all the different EU member states and how to make it work on a record. How I approached this is similar to how I approached Through the Seasons. In that this is my take on the tunes that I have discovered and researched, while been inspired by the different sounds and musicians I worked with on this. One thing stood out for me and that is how music crosses borders and how interlinked everything is. And also when I was researching the tunes I didn’t want to go down the route of doing the obvious musical connections to each country. For example, the tunes from Cyprus and Greece do not sound like they should be from there, but I think it’s important to highlight this. I think this is something to savour and remember as the UK leaves the European Union.
This album is for all Europeans wherever you come from and whatever you believe in.
