The World In My Mind :)
Well Ladies and Gentlemen. It’s with great relief that “The World In My Mind” has finally released. It’s been such a long time in the making and in many ways, i think it seemed like harder work than “The White Rose” tho i have to say, no less enjoyable. I think this was due to a lot of touring commitments with the show. It’s hard to convey your thoughts and song across the world when you are constantly on the move….. But “Suffice to say” we got there in the end.
I worked along with Dave Cooke again on this one, as i was so happy with the results of TWR. His understanding of what i want is uncanny, his artistic input is second to none i believe. He keeps me right when my mind is running away with it’s self too. He has worked with many greats down the days and has a phenomenal knowledge of what it takes. I’ve already had many questions about my song selection for this cd, why i chose the covers that i did and what inspired me to write the originals. Well it wouldn’t be me if there wasn’t a long story behind it all…….. Always with the stories……. Everyone of the songs on the disc have a real personal reason for being written or selected.
Over the next couple of months i will slowly reveal what they meant to me. Either in a video blog or just a good old fashioned “Written” blog. I thought it would be a good idea to give the cd a couple of weeks start before i began talking about the songs, to give people a wee chance to hear everything. As with “The White Rose” i’ll open it up to the vote what songs you would like to hear about first, tho i will chose the first one myself……. What will it be??? I’ll let you know early next week in a video blog…..
Ewan will be opening a section on the website for questions to be posted and i’ll work my way through “Them All” and answer to the best of my ability. OH,,,,,,, I also have sorted out a POBOX address too. I will have it up today or tomorrow. Tho if you want to write to me, there will be a place on the website to do so. I think that’s about it for the moment.
So will you tune in for the Video blog next week???
