This EP has brought me nothing but joy.
The songs are all from this past year, inspired by life's big little things - addiction, grief, loss, shadow, love, surrender, magic, mystery. There’s been pain and struggle and untold joy and expansion.
But the music is never hard work. The songs fall out fully formed. As I often say, I feel like they are not mine, and they are not for me but for others… but I get such a kick out of them! I really don’t need anything else. I hope that they bring you even half the clarity and enjoyment they’ve brought me.
Through unthinkably divine synchronicity, I ended up recording these songs in a cabin in the Australian bush with my dear friend Shunya, where every day we would rise and light the fire and give space to the songs that knew exactly how they wanted to emerge.
Shunya Bell, thank you for seeing me, feeling me and honouring me as an artist. Working with you (and living with you!) was pure magic.
Shunya’s a fantastically smooth and soulful musician in his own right and has just released a new album, Departure Lounge. He’s touring the UK at the moment, so go see him, and find his music. @shunyamusic
Alexis is the brilliant photographer behind the EP cover. The first time I saw his photos, they hit me in the chest and made me FEEL something. I am rarely so moved by photography but there’s something special he captures of the mystery and aliveness of nature. He’s a master and servant of the moonlight - a perfect match for this EP! His work is available to admire and purchase - @alexis_pichot
On my song “Queen of Hearts”, you’ll hear some gorgeous fiddle - this is my friend Anand Manish, who I sent a rough recording of the song to from Australia and who sent me back his track within 24 hours. What a legend - thank you Maneesh, I love hearing you on this.
I want to thank my brother @garyoneillmusic for telling me to make music. He’s honestly one of the most talented musicians I know. Please check him out. 📸 @alexis_pichot
