During lockdown 2020 I was inspired to write every week as part of an online writer's group.
A phrase that was used regularly during this time was, ‘well at least we’re all in the same boat’. It really bothered me because clearly, we were not. So I wrote Entwined.
Fast forward to 2022 and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. We were on tour with Arcelia in March and each night we sang a song together for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine. The idea formed to release a song to raise money for a Ukrainian charity.
I was moved by the story of the Dnipro Kids being evacuated to Scotland. It reminded my of my time working with children in Romania many years ago. So, all the proceeds from Entwined will go directly to Dnipro Kids.
Entwined is a digital release only on Bandcamp. We would love you to buy the track for whatever you can afford to help us raise lots of money.
Arcelia sing the beautiful backing vocal arrangement on the track. The artwork is a found object piece by artist Monique Sliedrecht that sits on my fireplace and has resonated with me so much in these tough years.
Thank you for your support and hope you enjoy the song. X
