Shane will be performing songs from Ceaseless Now a new three-sided album all about connection;
It was conceived, written and recorded during lockdown as part of a Masters in Songwriting research project. Instagram live streaming was utilised throughout the writing and recording process. This infuses the album with a real-time felt connection between writer, song and audience from its very conception.
Inspired by Kae Tempest’s brilliant meditation ‘On Connection’ (2020), Ceaseless Now invites the listener into a world of phenomenology, correlations and the simultaneity of beginning, ending & choice.
Support is from Essence Martins, and friends.
