Deepest Black is the song that really started me on a new path of creativity. It took many years to work out who I was as a musician, but this song has given me a reason to go on ironically. (Read the words to get that).
I remember playing it in its first version to producer Stuart James at Kosmic. He practically started convulsing. Either it made him ill, or it hit him hard. The second option was correct, and Stuey has pushed and supported me ever since that day. We both love music that moves the soul.
The second victim was Donna Greene. We had just played a charity gig at the Rocket Room, which was our first glimpse of what would be our new musical vehicle, even though it was more to get Donna out and help her with the MS fight-back thing.
Donna asked me what I had been up to, so I played the same DB demo. Donna also convulsed. Not from the MS, or a bad tummy, but from a wave of raw emotion. You can see that emotion very clearly in this lyric vid. It may be subtle, but let go for the ride and immerse yourself, feel it with us. Donna also loves music that touches the soul, and at the deepest levels!
That is what Deepest Black is all about. The ability to feel. Empath along with us!!!
