I spent last summer in the mountains of South Wales making my album from which the single Maps was released last month. The album is a chronological tapestry of tales of life’s experiences and ideals, and songwriting is my mind’s coping mechanism. Maps is the first release, but there will be a visual accompaniment for each song on the album, each providing a character’s story eventually intertwining into Patchwork: the title of the final track and of the album itself.
