Tēnā koutou,

ABOUT THE ALBUM

All songs written as my observation and reflection 
of the world and people around me each day. 


Forgive me as I know there are a few mistakes & glitches but I have deliberately left them there as I believe nothing is perfect and there is beauty in imperfection.

Sweet lullabies is dedicated to all those with hidden illnesses who “look well” but battle everyday.

I Went For A Walk…

I went for a walk
Alone with my thoughts
 
No sound but the sea
and the calling of birds.
 
No city hum
No vehicle roar
 
Just silence and peace
The world’s call to rest.
