A life of travel has inspired many songs and this album represents the last two years of the decade.
Under The Stars and Face In A Crowd were written after hearing virtuoso George Curmi playing violin in a street bar in Malta which led to a return visit to record the tracks at Lito's Place in Valetta.
I wrote the tribute to blues legend Dr John shortly after he died.
In 2020 the world was turned upside down by the pandemic, songs such as Living With Fear took on another meaning and This World was written in the middle of the lockdown whilst trying to keep optimistic about the future.
There is still time to dream.
