Unlike my previous 2 EPs of piano music, which I wrote as a reflection on some of my past experiences, 'Paradise' was written in a more day-dreaming-y sort of mind frame . I had been working in several jobs (as a kitchen porter, barman, waiter, handing out flyers, etc) and I spent a lot of time staring out of windows, and longing to be somewhere a little more peaceful, like an island or something far away from the noisy, fast-paced London lifestyle.

I think Kit really captures this feeling in his interpretation and I hope this music can help you to dream if you ever need a moment to escape. It did me!

I would like to give special thanks to Kit Downes, Alex Kilpartrick, Andrew Lawson, Fieldgate Studios, Matthew Evans (SnowSkull), all my friends, family and my lovely Mum.
