I’m delighted to say that my debut single, Butterfly, is OUT NOW. You can find it on Spotify, iTunes/Apple Music, Amazon music, Google Play, Deezer, or wherever you listen to your music.
I often place myself in the shoes of people who inspire me when I’m writing, and the lyrics of this song are based on the experiences of an incredibly brave and resilient woman who I was lucky enough to meet a few years ago. It’s about the challenges of single motherhood, of dealing with the emotional impact of abandonment and loneliness, whilst also trying to be brave for the sake of a child. The track began its journey as a simple piano song, and was transformed into a quirky, ethereal pop tune with the help of my producer, Jason Odle. The sweet, bright sound of the marimba is intentionally at odds with the hopelessness of the lyrics, to represent how we often pretend to ourselves and to others that we’re coping, when inside we’re really struggling.
