EXPLORE THE MUSIC

WHAT IS A BROKEN HEART FOR

What is a Broken Heart For? is a playful, upbeat song reminiscent of Linda Ronstadt, with classic harmonies of the Eagles. An instantly singable chorus with a relatable message – if you’ve ever experienced disappointment or heartache.

BETTER DAYS Ft. DAVE FENLEY

If you have ever felt a season of heartache or were on the brink of losing hope – this song is for you. We hope the listener finds comfort in the message that seasons change, and no matter what the circumstances are – Better Days are coming.

CATCH THAT TRAIN

Catch that train is about being faced with difficult decisions and changing the direction of your life. It’s about endings and new beginnings…maybe in a relationship, job, behaviour or belief. It’s about a kind of resolve when you know that things need to change, and pursuing a new way forward.
