'Birth and Death' is my 'in-the-making' debut album. The first half of the album are all love songs - songs of 'innocence'. The second half of the album is introspective, philosophical and exploratory - songs of 'experience'. Cheers to you, Sir Billy Blake. I guess it speaks of my own cycle through the lyrics, while exploring 'universal' themes far bigger than the limitations of the composer. It kisses the Sun, it drinks in diamonds, it runs up waterfalls and it leaves the body behind for a timeless ride. The cork has been popped from the red wine of the mind and all three eyes have been opened. 'Ars longa, vita brevis'.
