my album Barefoot on Diamond Road will have been out for just over a week! For all the time it’s been in the making, it still feels like a shock and quite unreal to have it sitting out there. Mostly it feels really, really good though. It’s as much yours now as it is mine and I can only hope some of the songs will find their way into your lives and come to mean something to you as well. The first responses have truly been heartwarming, and I feel incredibly thankful to everyone who’s reached out, shared or written about the music so far.
