I need as many photos of 11 as I can get. If you have, or would like to take, a photo with an 11 in it, I’d like to include it in a video.
This is the song that re-ignited my desire to write and record my own material again, after a bit of a break.
I wasn’t 100% sure where I was taking it musically when I started, although I had the lyrical theme pretty much sorted. However, it got to a point where I just thought “You know what, I reckon that’s finished, that is” and left it as it was. I’m pleased I did so, because it could have got over-egged if I’d spent more time on it.

The Honey Dance
This is a song that stems from a tune that came to me in a dream. I rolled over in my half-sleep and sang the melody into my mobile phone so I wouldn’t forget it. I’m glad I did so, because it turned into one of the songs I’m most proud to have written.
You could say that I started recording this song back in 2002, as that is when I recorded the insect noises, at a beautiful, peaceful temple, just outside Chiang Mai, in Thailand.
