James Watt 1812

Here is preview song from the upcoming album.  This is about James Watt and how he may have felt when the Frame Breakers Act was passed in 1812.  The river mentioned in the song is in Greenoch where James Watt was born.  I took a walk there when I was writing this.  The stream in the video is at Needham Market and equally as beautiful and somewhat closer for me now.  Hopefully a thought provoking song.

Crook

'In the crook' was written from speaking with a foster carer who after looking after a baby from three days old, was getting ready to introduce them to their adoptive parents. I was thinking about the birth family, the foster family and the adoptive family. It got me thinking about holding on and letting go and the power in each of those actions.
