Huge love and thanks go to the following for joining me to make the project a total joy and one of the recordings I shall always be most proud of.
Nick Patrick, Ultra-talented, super-charming, totally unflappable .... but enough about me. The first of many projects we do together, I hope.
Peter, Schwier, clever man.
Martin, Andy and all at British Grove for their skill, patience and coffee making abilities.
Nick Ingman and all the Musicians, whose sublime orchestrations and wonderful musicianship made the sounds in my head even better.
Phil Bowdery who helped initiate, guide and nurture this project so beautifully.
Peter, Karen, Brian and everyone at Union Square for taking a chance, never saying no and supporting us all the way.
Sarah and Andrew for always smoothing the way.
The writers of these special songs, especially my old friends Andrew, Leslie, Tim, Claude-Michel, Alan and Herbie who trusted me with their new babies.
The huge talents of Laura Michelle Kele and Carlos, Seb, David and Urs (Il Divo) who sag magnificently , but more importantly made me laugh so much.
Cathy and the whole Crompton / McLeod crew for ideas, encouragement and making everything 'light up, light up'
and finally the Fans ... who have always embraced the new honoured the old and made me so very proud.
