I am profoundly grateful to Maalavika Manoj for trusting me with her songs and giving me the chance to produce such an eclectic album

I think I’ve learned more making this album than I have on any other project that I’ve produced.

‘Caution To The Wind’ explores the medium of the pop-song in its many incarnations through the ages. There are classic sounds, like those from the song ‘Absolute’. There are heavy 80’s influences, as in songs like ‘Cabaret’, ‘Mundane’, and ‘Sitting On The Fence’. Songs like ‘Live Again’ and ‘Age Of Limbo’ have a sound strongly centred around the 90’s. ‘Horoscope’ is reminiscent of an approach from late-2000’s indie-rock.

It has been an incredible journey exploring these sounds together and getting them to cohere on the same record. Many songs pull together a diverse collection of influences on their own.

It’s been a pleasure to work with and learn from an artist like Mali. She definitely pushed my standards higher in the process of making this record.

Super happy to finally share this with the world.

Hope you enjoy it : )
