The piano solo intro came to me in a dream in it’s entirety – the only thing that I’ve ever been able to take from a dream into the real world. Soon after this, a friend of mine (Ricky Baxter http://rickybaxter.wordpress.com/) told me he was writing a story about characters in a dream that wanted to live on even after the dream ended. After reading his story outline, I was inspired to write this album. He is also a self-taught keyboardist like myself and his piano work features on the track ‘it’s already over’. In turn, I gave my vocals to one of the tracks in the official soundtrack to his finished story, ‘Colours of Destiny’. I explored my falsetto in this album, something that I hadn’t done before.
