Below is a still from a beautiful video of my song “Slow Decay” by award-winning filmmaker Brett Harvey, based on the incredibly poignant true story of a man who cycled 1,400 miles to hear his daughter’s heart beating again in the body of its recipient. I was lucky enough to receive grants from Arts Council England and Cultivator Cornwall for the making and marketing of my new album If We Dig Any Deeper It Could Get Dangerous, including money for the production of videos by two Cornish filmmakers – the aforementioned Brett Harvey and Mawgan Lewis, who made a gorgeous video of lead single “The Tug Of The Moon” as well as a documentary video about the making of the album – do watch them if you haven’t already! Brett told me that the lyrics of “Slow Decay” put him in mind of a news article he’d read about Bill Conner, a Wisconsin man who undertook his cycle ride to raise awareness for organ donation and honour the memory of his daughter Abbey, who died at the age of 20. In Brett’s short film, it’s the mother – beautifully played by Mary Woodvine – who makes the journey, intercut with flashbacks of her daughter’s short life. It’s such a gorgeous video and promotes a cause I feel very strongly about, so I do hope you’ll click here to watch it – and I also hope you’ll be able to get to one of my gigs in the coming year!
