This body of music is inspired by many things: nature, people, journeys, places, weather, but you can't beat a good book.
Nick Drake's music has been a massive part of my life and I'm constantly striving to get even close to the intricacy in his guitar playing
The Peregrine is pure poetry, the kind of book you can open a random page and be instantly transported. I'm no lyricist, but but the imagery in J A Baker's writing is stunning
Johnny F*cking Marr... For his music - but also his prolific work ethic... The man is driven, this book gives me a kick up the arse to go out and get stuff done... Speaking of which, I WILL get this album recorded.
