My father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 63. He died just seven years later, at the age of
70. Over the last few years of his life, he became virtually unrecognisable from the father who nurtured and raised
me. It affected me very deeply, and my third album is coloured by my journey through the disease with my father.
The song Dripping Away directly deals with my emotional response to the deterioration of my father.
Dripping Away was awarded a semi-final place in this year’s UK Songwriting Contest. The competition received
well over 6,000 entries and judges included top producer Stuart Epps (Elton John, Robbie Williams, Led
Zeppelin, Bill Wyman, Paul Weller, Oasis), BRIT Award winning producer, songwriter and musical director Simon
Ellis (S Club 7, Britney Spears) and the legendary producer, musical director and arranger Richard Niles (Paul
McCartney, Kylie Minogue, Boy Zone, Take That, Mariah Carey, Cliff Richard).
