I learnt the classical guitar for a couple years as a child and then I basically stopped playing it. I’d pick it up now and then to try and learn a tune but it never really went anywhere. Still, I kept my childhood guitar and carried it with me wherever I lived. Then in 2018 I moved to the Outer Hebrides to do a one year art course and I finally had time to explore that side of me. This EP/Demo is the culmination of that journey. Recorded by yours truly on a portable Tascam microphone in my studio flat 🙂
