The second release from the Cheshire-based singer/songwriter is a more comprehensive collection, with better production than his first set 'Save Me' which had more of a raw demo feel to it. What has not changed is Ade's emotional soundscape, reflecting influences such as Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen in both his writing and delivery, and heartfelt lyrics as he describes times of personal devotion in "Stay" and Linger" while discussing deeper matters of life and death with a friend in "Talk About It". The overall feel of this seven-song project is of a genuine, honest artist sharing his heart, and an invitation to dig deeper with each play!
