about

'We Are The Ones' is the third release from my forthcoming debut solo album, which will be released early 2016.

‘We Are The Ones’ captures the same nostalgic and anthemic qualities of previous single ‘95’ but ultimately looks forward to the future rather than into the past. With its rousing chorus - “We are the ones still burning bright” - this is a ‘call to arms’ to my generation.

Having overcome depression and anxiety, and growing more confident with age, I wanted to share the positivity I feel from a more mature and settled outlook. ‘We Are The Ones’ emphasises that fact, advising listeners that they still have the time and the power to “make things right”.

The 3 bonus tracks are only available via Bandcamp or by picking up a limited edition CD on the 'We Are The Ones' tour.

Additional tracks include previous single ‘95’, the haunting adolescent ballad ‘Loneliness (A Song For You and Me)’ and an acoustic version of ‘We Are The Ones.’ The two latter tracks were both recorded specifically for this release.

My second single ‘95’ was aired on BBC 6 Music by Tom Robinson and received rave reviews, including this one from R*E*P*E*A*T:

“…when the air-punching chorus kicks in with ‘I wanna be back in 95′, it’s hard not to be carried along on the good vibes.”

Track Name: We Are The Ones
I remember when we were young, we used to chase the sun
It never set on us
We're no longer 17 and while our bodies sleep
We still dream

One generation, locked inside
Breaking free, we sing

WE ARE THE ONES STILL BURNING BRIGHT
WE ARE THE ONES UP EVERY NIGHT
WE ARE THE ONES, WE ARE THE ONES

I remember summer songs, we still sing along
They still turn us on
And whilst time may have gone, we're not lost
We keep burning on and on and on and on...

One generation, locked inside
Breaking free, we sing

WE ARE THE ONES STILL BURNING BRIGHT
WE ARE THE ONES UP EVERY NIGHT
WE ARE THE ONES, WE ARE THE ONES
WE ARE THE ONES STILL FIGHTING ON
WE ARE THE ONES EVER STRONG
WE ARE THE ONES, WE ARE THE ONES

AND WE WILL SING OUR SONG
WE WILL SING OUR SONG
WE WILL SING...

WE ARE THE ONES STILL BURNING BRIGHT
WE ARE THE ONES UP EVERY NIGHT
WE ARE THE ONES, WE ARE THE ONES
WE ARE THE ONES STILL BURNING BRIGHT
WE ARE THE ONES UP EVERY NIGHT
WE ARE THE ONES, WE ARE THE ONES
WE ARE THE ONES STILL ALIGHT
WE ARE THE ONES TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT
WE ARE THE ONES, WE ARE THE ONES
WE ARE THE ONES
WE ARE THE ONES
WE ARE THE ONES
Track Name: 95
Do you remember the first time when years ago in 95
Those summer days were alright?
Me, Glen, Bobby and Steve setting fires, running free
When I look back in anger it’s what I see

Escaping into the night, first taste of sex and love bites
That was our design for life
And even when we cut our arms for those girls who came from Mars
Anyone can play guitar

I WANNA BE BACK IN 95 (WANNA BE BACK IN 95)
I WANNA BE BACK IN 95
I WANNA BE BACK IN 95
WITH YOU….FOREVER YOU

When I remember St. Ives sun I’m still Thom Yorke and James Bond
We write our own words to those songs
And the poster we all signed says ‘live forever’ not goodbye
We will always be…

I WANNA BE BACK IN 95 (WANNA BE BACK IN 95)
I WANNA BE BACK IN 95
I WANNA BE BACK IN 95
WITH YOU….FOREVER
YOU….FOREVER YOU

I WANNA BE BACK IN 95
I WANNA BE BACK IN 95
I WANNA BE BACK IN 95
WITH YOU….FOREVER…
YOU….FOREVER…
YOU….FOREVER…
YOU….

I WANNA BE BACK IN 95 (WANNA BE BACK IN 95)
I WANNA BE BACK IN 95
I WANNA BE BACK IN 95
WITH YOU….FOREVER…
YOU….FOREVER…
YOU….FOREVER…
YOU….FOREVER YOU
Track Name: Loneliness (A Song For You and Me)
I sit here alone, no friends to call my own
Just me and my guitar, nothing else but the posters on the walls
My only love has gone until I find another one
Something precious to obsess and consume the emptiness

So I will sing this song
For you, for me, for anyone
An anthem for the unloved
Some sound to fill our silence...

LONELINESS
LONELINESS
LONELINESS
A SONG FOR YOU AND ME

I sit lie here alone, nothing to call my own
My public face has died whilst I crawl deeper inside
I'm growing into this skin and no-one will notice me
Hiding in my own world, nothing can touch me

And I will sing this song
For you, for me, for anyone
An anthem for the unloved
Some sound to fill our silence...

LONELINESS
LONELINESS
LONELINESS
A SONG FOR YOU AND ME
LONELINESS
LONELINESS
LONELINESS
LONELINESS
A SONG FOR YOU AND ME
A SONG FOR YOU AND ME
A SONG FOR YOU AND ME
A SONG FOR YOU AND ME
