‘Between The Dream And The Waking…’ and it’s sister album ‘…There Is Hope’ were both completed towards the end of 2018. At this time, I had a quiet suspicion there was something very wrong in my body. I’d been to the Doctor to raise my concerns and she’d referred me to a specialist. I was waiting for an appointment and some tests and I was trying to prevent my imagination from straying too far towards the darkness.

I think of this as a nighttime album, a reflective, slightly anxious but somewhat hopeful exploration of a moment in my life.
A few weeks after it was completed I was diagnosed with cancer.
