Matthew Hindson writes:

“I started this album during lockdown, when I felt an intense need to write music that was personal and overtly emotional.

“It’s quite a change from anything I have written before.

“And I’m utterly delighted that the extraordinary Australian pianist, Andrea Lam, recorded the album and is playing live in concert.”

“While sad and melancholic in mood, these 13 pieces have the paradoxical effect of uplifting the listener” - Matthew Hindson

4. Resilience

5. Isolation

6. Love

7. Attraction

8. Goodbye

9. Aftermath
