"An extraordinary experience that really grips the attention of listeners"
~ Jessica Morgan (Post Punk Press)
Terminals is my debut studio album, recorded over summer 2017 and released in September of the same year.
I used to describe Terminals as a "musical journey" - inspired by the liminality of airports, train stations, and coach stations that I frequented during that time of my life. Looking back on my mental state in 2017, however, I feel that Terminals takes on a somewhat different quality: the album, for me, captures the liminal space of post-graduation life - thrust into a world that is difficult to understand, forced to navigate a landscape that the British education system woefully underprepares you for.
Terminals is a snapshot of my feelings and mental headspace during that time - a time before I knew I was a composer - told through the metaphor of airports and liminal, terminal spaces.
In 2018, four pieces from the album - 'Terminals', 'Laura', 'In Dreams', and 'Sleeping in Airports' - were reworked with guitarist Chris Hague for a series of live sessions with production company Technoir.
