In the lockdown I made a virtual album with the Italian producer ‘PAPIK’. I recorded my vocals in St Leonard’s on Sea and Papik put together a band of musicians in Rome, to record the music. Tony Remy my long term right hand man guested on guitar. We chose songs from the 80s and early 90s to rework and put the PAPIK touch to. There was a connection with each song. I always loved the writing of Paul Weller and became friends through touring alongside ‘The Style Council’ on the ‘Red Wedge’ tour in 1986. Years later Paul wrote me a song for my ‘Blue Valentine’ album in 1995 called ‘Leaves Around The Door’. I chose ‘You’re The Best Thing’ as the song to cover of his. I supported ‘Prefab Sprout’ at the beginning of my career and always loved the writing of Paddy McAloon. Here we chose the song ‘Appetite’ to cover. Other songs we covered are from Simply Red, who I supported around Europe in 1989, Everything But The Girl, Barry White, Bill Withers, Anita Baker, Tod Rundgren. Papik and I also co-wrote three original songs called ‘ I Really Feel You So’ and ‘Hold On To Love’ which is the current single and ‘Looking for a Rainbow’. For those of you that liked my ‘Blue Valentine’ album, I think you will like this. The album is perfect for the Summer and to uplift the spirits.
