This month’s album has taken years to come together. It’s not that David Rhodes is a particularly slow worker as much as he’s been very in demand as a session guitarist, primarily for Peter Gabriel but also for the likes of Paul McCartney, T-Bone Burnett and even Roy Orbison.
Rhodes started writing the songs which became ‘Bittersweet’ a few years ago and gradually worked on them until he felt they were strong enough to meet the public. Talking about the title, David explained:
“There’s always that balance of light and dark that runs through the record. Hopefully there’s enough colour in the music to offset any miserable lyrics!”
We were really pleased to enable David to get into the studio and record this album and, as usual, we’d really like to know what members thought.
