I was incredibly fortunate back at the beginning of 2020 to meet a quite brilliant saxophone player called Nathan Haines, a musician of world renown, who I was hoping to book for a project I was curating in his home city of Auckland. Somewhat inevitably, Covid put an end to the project but the connection was not in vain. Almost exactly a year after we met, I am thrilled to be releasing a song on which Nathan not only played a sublime saxophone part, but which he also mixed for me. His contribution has taken this song to an entirely new place and I couldn’t be more thrilled with it – or keen to share it with the world.
Check out Nathan’s work at NathanHaines.com and you’ll immediately understand why I feel so honoured to have him play on this track.
