Layaway

For those unfamiliar; an article that is laid away and kept apart for later collection – with or without a down payment, is called a layaway. It’s also the title of a small group of songs I recorded during Covid isolation, keeping the wheels in motion. 

Picking up instruments that were new to me and learning to play them on familiar songs, I was also joined by old friends – some of them live and some at long distance.

Molding the soundscape and atmosphere that became the template for the Cd ‘Candle To You’, these recordings were then laid away for some time. 

On revisiting them we thought they should be taken home and made available now.

A streaming only 7-song EP release is set for August 19 2022 on all digital platforms.
