Buckridge had this to say about the record:
“There are lots of one-word titles! I feel like I should have given my songs different names but, in some ways, I like it this way because it’s a reminder of the writing process. The weekly “response to stimulus” activity and the process of receiving and responding to feedback.
Participation in the Club meant that I was producing lots of material for consideration, and getting a chance to test things with a sample audience on a regular basis. Sometimes the feedback can be surprising – more positive than you expected – and this can motivate you to take a second look at something.”
“Passport”, the lead single off the album, was born out of 4 lines submitted to the Club. Edward says “being accountable to the group motivated me to put something in (however small!), and the feedback I received that week really pushed me to do the work to finish it.”
Edward and Brooke have both been active members of I Heart Songwriting Club since 2017 and met through the Club’s activities in Brisbane. Both solo artists in their own right, they have performed at multiple Club showcases, and also have been featured in our ABC Radio Live Songwriting Sessions – a fast-paced, live and collaborative songwriting session featuring members of the Club.
