Written and recorded across 2011/12 in a flat astride a Strip Club, Casino, and twenty four hour loading bay.
Released on May the 7th 2012, the anniversary of the sinking of the Lusitania.
There are many hands and voices that led me here. Here are but a few.
I'd like to thank my parents and family for their love. Joe Williams for putting up with me. Rebekah Whitlam for her undying faith and love. Natalie Walter for her constant friendship and support. Tom Morris, Sophie Green, Michael Love, Thom Corah and others for getting me here and giving me the confidence to do music and finally start singing at the age of 24, and being my best of friends along the journey. Jeremy Boughton, Nick Hill, Andrew Hugill, and John Richards for inspiring, teaching, supporting, and encouraging me despite my failings. Stuart and Jenni Alexander for making the World a brighter place. Anthony Hopkins for all the free Beer and kind words, and everyone else who I see from week to week. Without the kindness of others I would have wilted away long ago.
