As two song writers who live over 4,000 miles apart (Ashley in Kentucky and myself in Liverpool) – it can sometimes be difficult to write songs together. Despite the advantages of email, Skype and the intahwebs and general, there is no substitute to practising and recording together.
So I was most grateful to Ashley for making the journey, enduring customs, an overly zealous drunk plane passenger and the sleepless no-man’s land that is international travel. We managed to record four news songs which we plan to release and upload soon. I need to produce and master the tracks now, but am glad to be working on some new material.
We did take a break to do some touristy things in Liverpool, (living here all the time, you forget how many amazing things there are here to do.) So we had a ride on the Mersey Ferry, enjoyed the parks and enjoyed many copious dinners out. Ashley felt particularly at home at Buffalo Jacks.
