So, after 4 years of doing little I finally have a new project on the go - Nigella, an affectionate paean to Nigella Lawson. Just sort of happened really....one day few months back my lovely Mother-in-Law said to me in her broadest and very lovely Guyanese accent that my brother-in-law had 'a bit of a thing' for Nigella (I guess many men of a certain age do..?) Anyway, next day poodling about with my uke and ten minutes later had written the song. Played my home demo to Curtis (Schwartz) and he was insistent we should record it. So we did, and what a laugh we had doing it ! I am so grateful to Curtis for putting it together, Chris Worsey for his fantastic, peerless cello, old pal Steve McLean on bass, the brilliance of Neil Wilkinson on drums, the soothing super smooth BV's from my dear & lovely friend Sacha Flory & a quite amazing, raucus rip from the incredible Lucy Jules. I really didn't expect to end up with what we ended up with which (Nigella aside) is an upbeat, fun song that's actually rather 'happy' and a departure from my usual stuff. Therefore we're slinging it out under the alias of 'Nigellarox.' The video was just as much fun and I really appreciate the contributions of Sacha, Jody, Emma, Matt & Bobby on a lovely sunny day in London ! Best thing of all (apart from the laughs) it's got me writing again and I'm looking to start a new album early in 2017.
