I am now planning my next album which will consist entirely of songs that I've written. It is a very special and exciting project for me because it is something I have wanted to do for as long as I've been composing. It's extra special for me because I will be self-recording and producing it in my own home studio.
At the moment, I am going through my catalogue of compositions which currently consists of about 90 songs - and counting!, because there is usually something going on in my personal life or the greater world that affects me emotionally, inspiring me to write. It's quite a task selecting which ones for this first originals album, though, because it's hard to be objective when they're all a complete expression of who I am and what I have felt about different situations. So, watch this space...!
