The piano music came first. It was written in 2010 breaking a long period of writer’s block. I played it to my friend Guy who encouraged me to take it forward. This and the piano on Tiny Moments, Tiny Omens, which disappeared amidst all the guitars. They were the first pieces written. Photographing Rain was the first piece to catch Julian’s ear, making him think we had something here. He went on to layer guitar upon guitar giving it the depth you hear. The title came before the words. I had in my head an image of so many people crying that it was like rain. And then the story came.
I love playing piano. My first instrument. Here’s a picture of me with one taken yesterday:
Folly should be out soon. So sorry for its delay. I could explain but it’s too dull. Suffice to say my head is sore from bashing it against the wall.
When it does come out I will buy a new piano maybe to celebrate. Thinking of a Vogel by Schimmel.
