COMMEMORATING & CELEBRATING RAB NOAKES
A couple of weeks ago we lost our friend Rab Noakes. I'm still reeling from the suddenness of it all - sad times, indeed - but this morning I'm fondly remembering my friend, collaborator and mentor. The Guardian wrote a beautiful piece on Rab. Read about his amazing life HERE. It even mentions the Don Everly album we recorded together a few weeks ago. The day before Rab died we spoke of the album. He asked me to finish it and I promised him I would. So we are doing just that. Mixing in December and then, lord willing' and the creek don't rise, getting it ready for release in the new year. All of us involved in the creation of this album look forward to you hearing the music. We thought at the time of recording and now, this is something really special. Please stay tuned and I'll try and keep everyone posted with the progress. doing my part to get this into the world. Meanwhile, here's one of my favourite song's of Rab's. It's called A Little Way Up. We filmed this together in 2019.
