BEHIND THE TRACK...

‘The Calling’ came about over a few sessions. We had quite a lot of the elements and I wrote the lyrics as the track was being built. We had these really strong chords that we liked a lot, but the way I was singing the lyrics wasn’t really working. I loved the words but I was singing them quite low, with not much intonation and the melody just wasn’t doing them justice. Sometimes when a track has quite a fast BPM it’s difficult to for me to hear past that. So I took myself off to the piano to work on the melody. I just sat there for a little while, playing the chords and trying different ways of phrasing the words with the chords. After about 20 minutes I found the groove that I wanted and went back through to the studio to sing it to Bryn and get his thoughts. Winner!

The lyrics themselves are sort of an extension of the healing that took place when I went to see the Shamen (see the ‘To The Place’ story for more on that). They are about finally being sure you are on the right path; finally having the strength of your convictions to cast off all the doubters and follow your heart to live a true life; ‘hearing a calling’ and following through with it. It was a joyful, cathartic experience to write them. I just love the power it takes me to sing it live.
