“Grandfather Please Stand on the Shoulders of My Father While He’s Deep-Sea Fishing”
Thank you Lana Del Rey for providing another dimension to my music and for this beautiful, ethereal and powerful song.
I was a little apprehensive at first when I heard you wrote some lyrics to my song « Flo » because it's such a personal song to me. I wrote it in one sitting, at the end of the recording of my Album «Tree of Light » at Real world studios outside of London. I will never forget that day. All the pieces were finally in place, and I heard those first notes, like little drops of hope, everything started to flo(w). It all happened so fast, as if the story was being told, without knowing where it all comes from. Some call it synchronicity, some say it is all written or is it all an illusion; we will never truly be able to explain the magic of creating music.
I am honored and proud to be part of this new album.
