If it’s your job to protect another person, and that overwhelms you with anxiety sometimes, remember that the most important job a cocoon has, is to break open and let the being inside it go free. And if you’re a cocoon for yourself: Remember that the caterpillar has to dissolve itself into mush to become a beautiful, rule-breaking moth. So if you're a sobbing mess wrapped up in your bed right now: Keep going, you're gonna turn out amazing.
This song is for my intrepid daughter, Indigo. “Stop worrying dad.” - Indi, aged 3. I will try.
Another new single will be out next month. I'm so happy to be releasing music again. Thank you so so much for watching, sharing and supporting it. With your help I can survive these insane times and still be a musician at the other end. (No pressure.)
