Karl and I have been friends for over 40 years, and in that time we have written many songs together, and recorded quite a lot of them too. Starting with a band called OAKWOOD in the late 1970s, with whom we recorded a number of sessions for BBC radio Leeds., followed by an album with a band called MR. REE in 1981.
Then, after a long hiatus (almost 30 years!) we decided to write and record some more.
