I have created a stripped and raw version of my debut album Carousel, from home. These are ‘live’, home recordings of completely acoustic versions of each song (minus the two already-acoustic bonus tracks).

Each song is just my voice and my guitar, recorded down one microphone across two afternoons in March, while my cat snoozed next to me in my living room.

I attempted to do everything in one take and keep it as ‘live’ and unedited as possible (with the exception of an odd couple of harmonies and extra parts) - as if the listener was there in the room with me - and so I have intentionally left in any little imperfections because I felt it was more authentic.

The album also features a bonus track of a raw acoustic version of 'Ghost' (2019 single release).

A very limited number of x150 CDs available.
Each will be hand numbered, with a handpainted sleeve, unique from each other in design.

The release will also be available as a digital download/stream on Bandcamp only. The album may appear on other streaming platforms eventually, but this will not be for a very long time away if so.
