about

Way back in 1989 while living in Colorado, I made a lifelong friend, a big beaming bear of a man. A man in every sense of the word, though still a teenager like me. A natural leader, well read and well spoken, he arrived in the room before his body did.
He could dunk a ball, his smile would light up the darkest day and he knew all about stuff I had only imagined. He was the epitome of an old soul.
Fast forward half a lifetime and Ben Lodmell is living in Portugal, having made a life abroad, stints in Argentina and sojourns back to the USA along the way.
He’s always had a good turn of phrase and has been writing some beautiful poetry over the years. A little while back I sat with one of them and started to work it into a song.
With his blessing and encouragement, I’ve turned four of them into this acoustic EP which I recorded in a couple of sessions with Phil Georges - all live, no overdubs.
It’s my first journey into a co-write of this nature and it has been a fantastic experience. Taking these beautiful poems and moulding them into a song at times felt a bit sacrilegious but we’re both happy with the end result which is all that matters.
