Recently Ruairí and I were invited to unit1 studios in  Dublin to record a Bantum track. A couple of days before, Ruairí asked what I thought of doing an acoustic version of Oh My Days. We had never tried anything like this before; our collaboration up until now has been all about the electronic manipulation of various phrases and snippets to form a cohesive whole. We took a bit of time and stripped back the song to chords and a melody, and this version took shape. 

Big thanks to Laura and Marc for asking us in, and for giving us the freedom to showcase something completely contrary to what they had expected! We had a great time :)

Sacred Harp is a community based, a capella four part harmony singing where all voices are equal and worthy. Since I started singing music from the Sacred Harp in Juniper Hill’s UCC class in 2010, nearly all of my travel abroad has been for or incorporated shape note singing in some way. This video is from the recent Norwich all day singing, where we met at 10am and sang until 3.30pm. Best way to spend a Saturday. Sure what else would you be doing.

I will try to post some information on what I’m up to at any given time, as well as perhaps some inspiration or things that I am into at that time. Giz a follow and shout at me on twitter!

Things really come alive … for ‘Roll Pt. II’. Imagine horsing The Sugababes into the Xenomania House with a bucket load of acid, then calling ’round the next morning to reap the rewards and you’d be somewhat close.
