ELLA 3:260:00 / 3:26
ELLA - Released!
At the end of 2015 I received a Careers Development Grant to study songwriting and production in the UK. Years spent in the ephemeral arts of improvised music had left me with very little tangible work to share with people, so I was delighted to receive this grant which allowed me precious time to focus on and develop my songwriting. Without being aware of it, I spend most of my day believing that I don’t have the time to do the things I really want to do. So when it comes to writing a song I often dismiss my bigger ideas as too time-consuming, thinking I should instead be doing something more important.
Now that the song 'ELLA' is finished, it feels like one of the most important things I have done. In hindsight, I can’t imagine how anything could be more important than sharing the expression of my love for Ella and my family. This song is a way for me to connect with the wider community of parents who have experienced the joys and challenges of bringing children into this world. It is also a celebration of the wonder and the warmth of early childhood and reminder for us all to cherish those precious moments.
