Case Study #1: Mothers
The first in analysis project, our mothers album, is now finished and available to listen to or buy. Some very special guests appear on the record, including vocal performances from Jon Boden, Suzanne Rhatigan, Emily Denton and Leila McNeelance.
Listen to the songs in the player on the left and you can view the lyrics by clicking on the little crotchet symbol. Alternatively, the album is also available through most of the usual places you might expect to find music including Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Music, and GooglePlay. You can also order a very limited edition yellow vinyl record, complete with lyrics and lovely illustrations by Mary Richards.
If you enjoy any of the songs, we'd be delighted if you would make a contribution to Samaritans or to Mind (see the links on our main page), who are doing invaluable work in a very difficult time.
Last Christmas with Dad
For Christmas 2022 we have recorded a song with David Schweitzer & vocalist Emily Denton, called Last Christmas with Dad. You can read more about the song here or listen to it on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube and many other places.
Case Study #2: Love
Last year, we were delighted to share the first four tracks from our forthcoming love album. As with mothers, the songs are all based on stories posted anonymously through this site over the past year. We would like to thank all the people who took the time to get in touch. Once again, we received some great stories and thoughts on the subject and enjoyed creating the songs.
More songs are currently in progress but it is not too late to (anonymously) contribute your own thoughts about love on the Tell a Story page.
For the time being, we've removed these songs while we work on the rest of the album, but hopefully we'll be able to finish it soon.
