Hi everyone on in fan club, Merry Christmas. I've just uploaded 'May This Circle Stay Unbroken Live at Little Lefroys'. This is an iPhone recording I forgot I had and found recently. I wrote Circle while I was in WA visiting a close friend, I was quite immersed in writing this song while I was there due to the inspiring experience and surroundings. I had a little busking gig in town one morning and I thought I'd just jam on the idea there as there was no expectations from anyone, which is why busking is so cool. I realy loved playing the song that morning and no-one noticed except one guy in the corner who didn't clap but was sketching me, he said he really dug what I was doing and sent me the drawing some time later (see track art).
When you listen to the recording you'll hear how different it is to the Manifesto album version, of course it was a work in progress but the thing is I have not been able to recreate this particular feeling you hear here, the way I play the guitar and the the way the voice channels a particular feeling. It;s the reason why I try and record the earliest demos and performances, there is sometimes a magical quality about the creation process that defies ones attempts to capture it in performance or recording.
Anyways hope you dig it.
