hey guys , here is the fourth video in our american tour series …. this one comes from the beautiful city of chicago.

there were so many songs that we could have chosen - we did a load of research in to old blues and jazz artists and talked about maybe covering ray charles or sam cooke . there are some real legends from this neck of the woods .

in the end though we decided to have a bit of fun and cover a song from the eighties called “hard to say i’m sorry” and the tenuous link is that the band is called chicago :-)
i have to admit that power ballads have always been a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine . i also feel quite nostalgic when listening to music from this era as songs like this would have been floating around my (silly little pointy) ears when i was small ;-)
it was a cool challenge also to take a song that was recorded in such a different style and bring it in to our folky little world .

guys - we had over a thousand shares on the last video . thats the most we’ve ever had and i’m so so grateful . its such an amazing pay off to see these little videos get to so many people . please keep on sharing as much as you can .

massive thanks to all the usual suspects - brian , chris , simon , russ , james , thomas , dan , the once and stu larsen .

enjoy xxxx
