All I ever wanted to do was to make an album. With that achieved, the next step was to make a live album.
Ever since hearing Springsteen’s 1975-1985 box set as a child I wanted to capture the sound of my songs in a real environment. Hear and re-live the band’s magic in full swing, capture the applause and joy of the crowd, and prove to myself that me and my band could do it, and do it well.
Those two nights in September were two of the best nights of my life. Seeing everyone in the beautiful Sunderland Minster so happy, full of support and encouragement, having a great time and singing my songs is something I’m never going to forget.
I can’t thank Real World Records / Oli Jacobs and Bowers & Wilkins enough for capturing the magic of the shows so perfectly.
