ABOUT SERIOUSLY?!: Just me and my double bass. No genre as such - these songs are slower and less 'in your face' than my work with Toupé - although there are a couple of Toupé album tracks re-arranged for this recording.
I've only just found about West African Griots en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Griot
- but I've just realised it's what I've spent most of my musical life doing. Reacting, recounting, remembering with humour and song.
BONUS: I've also included a PDF of my 2011 screen novel, SQUISH. A story I wrote about a little girl trying to find her place in the universe and vice versa.
