I want to thank all my supporters for sharing the journey of making this record last year. Here is a lovely note I received yesterday from Steve Horrell in Hemel Hempstead.
Congratulations on the full release of The Year, She Turns’ and a big thank you for ensuring community members received a copy before Christmas. It was a mammoth undertaking, and the result is a beautiful album. It was made even more special through the ability to follow it’s creation throughout the year, finding out who had played on each song, and seeing the photographs for each month. Thank you so much for doing it all. Wishing you every success in 2017 and I look forward to the shows.
All the best
Happy New Year! The new album is now available to buy from all online digital platforms, as well as directly from my music page HERE. I want to thank everyone who has already bought the limited edition CD. It has been a delight to receive your orders and read all your lovely comments! With wonderful photographs from Peter James Millson, the CD comes in a beautiful digi-pak designed by Kaz Lammie and I think it looks gorgeous. We also made you a limited edition calendar for 2017 featuring all the monthly photographs and a chosen lyric from each song – also available to buy from the music page! Wishing you hope and happiness for the year ahead. As 2017 dawns, may we keep on turning fearlessly towards the light…
