It’s been an interesting journey making this one.
Great highs and lows.
From the pure ecstasy and liberation of receiving the gifts of the grandmother Ayahuasca through to chronic illness and lockdown.
Blood, sweat and tears! Quite literally.
My great hope for this album is that it conjures up and expresses the feelings of deep respect for our planet and its many inhabitants; it really is a paean to nature in all its beautiful manifestations. A small token of my love and gratitude.
I’ve had the great pleasure of working with the incredible producer Liam Fletcher, whom I now regard as a dear friend.
How we’ve laughed and cried 😂
I’ve been lucky enough to have had some of the most extraordinarily gifted musicians play on this album.
Special thanks to:
Fabiano do Nascimento for his superlative guitar
Misha Mullov-Abbado for his incredible bass and his exquisitely beautiful string arrangements
Ricardo ‘Tiki’ Pasillas for his deeply cool percussion
Adrian Freedman for his magical shakuhachi
Julia Morneweg for her magnificent cello
Bridget O’Donnell for her enchanting violin
Martin Stansbury for his highly skilled engineering and sensitive recording of my vocals
Jason Hillier for his superb recordings of Fabiano and Tiki
Sebastian Juliussen for his sublime vocals, guitar and friendship throughout
Thanks to Bob Katz for his occult mastering skills!
Big thanks also to the lovely José Léon for helping me with my Spanish pronunciation.
Super special thanks to my husband Philip whose support has been heroic!
