It's day 5 of the HYMNS & HOLLOWS project.
Downsie (the nickname is "growing" on her) aka Kat Downs has flown her American ass over to Brighton for 8 days for the two of us to write, record, produce AND release an EP.
We are sitting side by side most of the day, either on laptops or pianos, writing, bonding and making some beautiful art for you to enjoy.
So far we've written and arranged 5 songs:
2. Swallow Me Whole
3. The Jackknife (title still unsure)
4. Clear and Cold
Yesterday we finished all the pianos and are now moving onto vocals. It's a little bit stressful as we've both never done this before and suddenly quite aware of the challenge of writing to a deadline.
So, whatever comes out on Friday will be the finished article, let's hope we can pull it off!
Anyway, one of the joys of Patreon is being able to collaborate with other artists on these mini-projects. Working with Kat has added even more inspiration and ideas to my musical brain.
If you like the music I create, chances are you'll probably love Kat (and her band Sit Kitty Sit). It's definitely worth checking out her Patreon Page too, and considering pledging. She is a fantastic lady and I am thrilled to be working with her... apparently we're going to write a book of classical piano duets so this is definitely not the last time we will collaborate!
I am gonna miss her like crazy when she leaves :(
Hymn and Hollows is out on Friday on PATREON ONLY.

Right. Back to the studio.
