Just after the Christchurch earthquakes some friends and I got together to record this song – Set Sail thanks to Jeremy McPike at York Street & the superb engineering and production talent of Simon Gooding . Lauren Drescher designed some beautiful artwork. Anton Steel directed an awesome music video to accompany it featuring Lola Fountain-Best. Great thanks to NZ on Screen for sharing their incredible footage with us.
It’s taken much longer than expected but sometimes life takes time and we figure this song’s release is more timely than ever. We’re donating all the proceeds from the single ’Set Sail’ to Christchurch Resettlement Services who support people from refugee and migrant backgrounds living in Christchurch to settle successfully in New Zealand – they are committed to the Treaty of Waitangi and value the provision of a professional service delivered in a holistic, culturally responsive and collaborative way, with an emphasis on social justice which respects individual and community identity.
