Canopy 04:05
Lost as the trees bend and sway in the breeze While the leaves soak up all the sun's rays Sunbeams of light dart in and out of sight As they dance and encircle the shade We don't always know where we’re heading Or what might come to pass All I can see is this canopy As the blinding sun hunts for me I really don't need to see Too much too soon Too much too soon Too much too soon Your canopy is all I need Deep roots grow beneath strong branches that breathe With each step I take I feel you move Dewdrops from above refresh me with love I'm completely surrounded by you We don't always know the storm's intensity Or feel the rain lashing down All I can see is this canopy And feel it shielding me I really don't need to see Too much too soon Too much too soon Too much too soon Your canopy is all I need

Butterfly 04:35
Eluded by the motions Of this butterfly Who soars and falls with my emotions Down here in my cocoon I'm slowly changing But not fast enough to keep up with you So I'll say goodbye I'll let you fly Memories I'll hold inside My butterfly With life and hope you soar In vivid colours I can't understand anymore To feel my heart no more I'll say goodbye and wish for you the best in life I'll say goodbye I'll let you fly Memories I'll hold inside My butterfly All I can do is wait for another Or for you to fly back next summer Next time I won't grasp too tight Next time I won't break this Next time I won't chase too hard Next time I will just wait for it The timing is out of my hands And although I don't understand I believe there’s a plan

Wildflowers 04:52
Cracks showing Weeds growing Old pathways are crumbling to dust Soft words to say But they slipped away Through crevices where they decay Up from the cracks Through weeds and thorns Wildflowers will always blossom All along the track They persevere Wildflowers will always flourish here Flourish here Believing True meaning Will always push slowly through Deep down we hide This beauty inside Just let it grow and break into the light Up from the cracks Through weeds and thorns Wildflowers will always blossom All along the track They persevere Wildflowers will always flourish here Flourish here The wind is blowing And I'm bestowing On young shoots all the love I can give I don't always get it right But I delight When I see them grow and dance in the wind Up from the cracks Through weeds and thorns Wildflowers will always blossom All along the track They persevere Wildflowers will always flourish here

The streets are empty Noise replaced with serenity The road in front of me Stretches on and on and on Abandoned The rivers run clearer The sky seems bluer The birds sing louder than they've ever sung before As my senses come alive Is nature awakening Or is it just me? Things will change back one day But I quite like things this way Feeling the summer breeze Before it drifts away We can finally breathe And take the time to see The world at peace As it was created to be The world is at peace Breathing a sigh of relief The world is at peace Breathing a sigh of relief Reclaiming the silence Reclaiming the silence Breathing a sigh of relief The only marks in the sky Are from clouds floating by Vapour trails are gone The hum and roar of planes replaced with birdsong The only sound in the streets Are from people using their feet As smog disappears As time pressures ease There's nowhere to be The world is at peace Breathing a sigh of relief... Things will change back one day But I quite like things this way Feeling the summer breeze Before it drifts away We can finally breathe And take the time to see The world at peace As it was created to be The world is at peace Breathing a sigh of relief...

about

The songs on this EP were inspired by summer, nature, trees and wildlife, and they feature field recordings of birdsong and streams from rural Perthshire.

All proceeds will be donated towards two charities close to my heart that relate to the themes on this EP: Lendrick Muir and The Woodland Trust.

Lendrick Muir is a Christian outdoor centre located in the heart of the Perthshire countryside and has been working with children and young people for over 20 years. Over the years they’ve seen, countless times, the invaluable benefits for these young people in experiencing challenging activities. Adventurous activities help young people to develop new skills. In addition, they learn how to operate as a team and gain a huge sense of achievement as they step out of their comfort zone and try something new. It’s always been a priority at Lendrick Muir to year-on-year enhance our guests stay and they depend on support, so every donation helps them to further develop the activities and facilities at the centre.

The Woodland Trust plant woods and trees to combat climate change, build a greener future for the UK and create havens for wildlife. They restore damaged ancient woods so wildlife can thrive once again and save woods. They also protect woods and trees from decimation and stand against needless destruction and lead the fight against tree pests and diseases. They care for over 1,000 woods, keeping them open for us to explore and enjoy. Woods and trees were a lifeline for many of us during lockdown, providing relief from the stresses of Covid so your donation will help them create and protect even more woodland.
