I am Wolf is a departure from my debut album Paper released on Fluid Audio last summer. The modern classical elements of my previous album (piano and cello) have been replaced with vocals and a more dynamic use of electronic beats and ambient textures. The contrasts of hard and soft are starker on these tracks and the ambient elements are holding together what might spill over into chaos at any moment.
At the outset of this album it was clear for me that I wanted to go further with the treatment and use of my voice which I had begun to explore on my first album and to see where writing lyrics and singing would take me. On I am Wolf the voice or song is used primarily as an instrument, and although it often threatens to come forward I’ve rarely allowed it to break free from the other repetitive elements of the music.
Neon Marks is probably the only really recognizable song on the album but even so all the tracks here have been informed or created around structures and ideas that began at one stage with the voice. If Paper had been about movement and traveling through urban spaces, then I would say that this album represents traveling at night and the darker imaginary spaces these nocturnal worlds create.

I would like to especially thank Rob for allowing this record to reach a wider audience and to Dan at Fluid Audio for supporting my debut release and helping to find a home for this current project.
As always my family are what drives me forward to keep creating. My daughter Neath and son Reuben for being such beautiful little humans and my muse (Rachel) for her constant inspiration - I wolf you!
Last but not least to Orchestra Elastique for being the band I always wanted to be part of and for regularly reaching the outer limits of the cosmos!!
Family & friends I think you know who you are and a certain woman who can be very proud of her creation.
