Much of the inspiration for this album comes from her move back to rural South West Scotland where she continues her use of local history and folklore as a source for her writing in tracks such as ‘Old Mortality’ and ‘The Mermaid of Galloway’. Dumfriesshire’s ever changing landscape also plays a part sparking her inspiration to create the beautiful ‘Winter Song’ and thought provoking ‘Audience of Souls’ written in a local graveyard.
