Things That We Had Said
Making ‘Things That We Had Said’ was immensely satisfying for me musically and creatively. Working with Paul McKercher was a huge part of that, as were the songs themselves - they are so much more honest, grown-up and developed than I’ve ever written before. And seeing them ‘graduate’ to this EP was a proud moment for me. I am still really enjoying listening to the finished product.
