It's been a strange year for us musicians. Whilst Covid has hit so many people hard; the arts have had some serious challenges! The timing of the release of our 3rd record, 'Cages', was not exactly ideal; with live concerts cancelled, we lost every gig on the calendar and many opportunities to promote an album we all worked so hard to create.
To quote, 90's girl band sensation BWitched...Ce La Vie.
The reality is, we are fortunate in so many ways when so many have had to endure genuine suffering and hardship. Our studio, Woods Lodge, has been our salvation and allowed us to continue playing, writing, and rehearsing for large swaths of the last year. We took advantage of this wonderful asset by recording live versions of tracks from the album, and we are delighted to share 'Never Come Down' Live from Woods Lodge.
Recorded during lockdown 1, the session was inspired by our tour's cancellation to both give us some purpose and deliver something back to the fans. The song title is quite apt, given the challenges the world is facing; like the lyrics of the song, the music is an inspiration to play; every part seems to roll into each other and crescendo into something that feels very powerful as a player. It's one of those tracks that demonstrates what we do, groove, harmony, hope and aggression, all delivered in 5 minutes.
Every album can be traced back to a single moment of conception when an idea germinates in your mind, then sits quietly in the universe, on the lookout for stories to tell. When the producer of Favourite Worry, Paul Butler declared the words above, none of us knew what a lasting impression that would leave on the creation of Cages.
It's fair to say that Favourite worry was a cathartic process, many a broken heart was left bleeding on that record. It also left another lasting impression. Musical constructs we're torn apart and in their place was left a feeling of confidence and liberation in our abilities as musicians......
