Singer Kathryn Pepper says' “Endless Road, Restless Nomad’ was written whilst touring through Europe. “A life spent passing through, ..looking back, shared moments and endless roads.” The album title taken from the two songs on the album that express exactly that, 'Endless Road' and 'Restless Nomad”.
'There is Only Love' is a reaction to the intense period of negativity in the press and social media. Kathryn Pepper explains “We wanted to bring the free-spirited feeling we get on the road into the music, touring puts us in a bubble, away from the 24 news landscape we live in back home” Paul Zervas adds.. “We were looking to capture a sense of late's 1960's hippie optimism, drawing from an era of music that offered hope in troubled times”. Listen in for summer of love inspired 12 string electric guitars, harmony-drenched message of love.
'Gas Bottle Blue' finds the pair exploring opportunities missed, ..the roller coaster ride of chasing down your dreams while album opener 'The Gift' offers the gift of courage and the new hope.. “The gift you gave to me from the seventh son, ..reckless abandon.. child on the run”.
