about

Over the past few days, one of my favourite spots in the world so far and the location that this album was recorded, Koh Tao, has experienced an extraordinary monsoon flood. The destruction caused is tremendous. Among the damage is my music equipment. Choppers, One of the venues I regularly perform in flooded with my gear stored inside. Among the items lost was my loopstation, my guitar, my microphone and my laptop. So far I have received such a warm and supportive response to my sad news from all over the world with people offering to help. As a result I've decided to use this album to raise funds for the community of Koh Tao. The amount you pay for the album is up to you. No amount is too small and every bit helps. Next week I will be holding a benifit concert on the island where I will be presenting the funds raised to Koh Tao rescue to aid in their efforts to help the island recover.

Please enjoy this album with love from Koh Tao.
Si, xo

*Update - Until the evening of Jan 12th 100% of donations will go to Koh Tao Rescue.

In April 2014 I randomly bumped into Andy V at the Byron Bay Blues Festival. Andy used to play keys for me with the Eclective, since then he has gone on to be Dub FX right hand man in their loops stage show. Coincidentally enough, I'd just started getting into loops (I bought a BOSS RC-300 in November 2013) and we ended up doing a show together at a groovy little whiskey bar in Byron called Mr Johnson's.
I mentioned to Andy that I was going to Thailand to do some shows in May/June and invited him to join me if his hectic schedule could accommodate. Turns out he had a couple of weeks to spare and a flight to Europe with a stop over in Bangkok. The stars aligned for us there so we couldn't pass it up.

A few weeks later I picked Andy up from the wharf on Koh Tao and we spent the next 12 days making great music, great friends and great memories.

Big thanks to Andy V for comin. Thanks to Jeff and all the gang at Choppers, thanks to Nando and all the gang at Fish Bowl Beach Bar, big thanks to Vikky, Gigi, Pheonix, all the gang at Banyans, Lisa, Denny and all the crew at Raw Art Moovement. Looking forward to getting back to the island in January. Let's do it all again.y
