Update Jan 1, 2021: after discussions with the record company we have decided to schedule the first single release in early spring with the album coming out summertime. The 7” single will be available in dark blue vinyl with a gatefold sleeve, also in digital format - a new version of Kansas City Blue on Side 1 with a brand new song, Full Moon Glow (Shine On) on Side 2. A performance video will come out simultaneously. As soon as I have the official release date, I will announce it here and on social media. Hope you all enjoy a much better 2021 —DC

"It’s brilliantly dark - and British. It’s an absolute masterpiece!” Alan Shacklock (Producer)
Topics: fear, faith, love, childhood separation and abuse, grief, anger; and that great survival technique, numbed emotions - but above all, hope.
“This is music that needs to be played at volume. The message needs to be even louder.” Neil Chenoweth (Investigative journalist and published author)
