Emotion is a Workhorse

ABOUT THE EP

Patrick Fox Photography 1I WROTE AND RECORDED 'EMOTION IS A WORKHORSE' IN THE SHORT SPACE OF FIVE DAYS IN AUGUST 2014. WHAT STARTED OUT AS AN INITIAL IDEA FOR A FEW SONGS QUICKLY GREW INTO SOMETHING DEEPER AND MORE MEANINGFUL. MY IDEAS WERE TRANSLATED ONTO AN OLD FLIPCHART AND AT THAT PRECISE TIME, I SHARED MY DEEPEST SECRETS ABOUT LOVE, LOSS AND PAIN WITH PEOPLE THAT I'D KNOWN FOR A VERY SHORT TIME. 

THE THEME IS BASED ON ONE YEAR IN MY LIFE STARTING IN MARCH 2011 AND ENDING IN MARCH 2012. I LOST A LOVED ONE, I FELL IN LOVE, I RESENTED THE LOVE THAT I HAD, TRAITS AND PERSONALITIES OF OTHERS BECAME CLEARER, I BATTLED DEEP-ROOTED ANXIETIES AND EVENTUALLY FOUND MYSELF IN THE MOMENT AND HAPPY. THERE'S NO DOUBT THAT I WOULDN'T BE WHERE I AM TODAY WITHOUT ALL OF THESE EXPERIENCES, GOOD AND BAD. WOULD I CHANGE ANYTHING? I WOULD, BUT THEN I CAN'T GUARANTEE THAT THE MOMENT WE'RE IN RIGHT NOW WOULD BE THE SAME, SOMETHING THAT I'M HAPPY WITH. 

iTunesTHE SONGS ARE WRITTEN ABOUT HARD TIMES, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF 'PARIS'. I'VE TRIED TO WRITE IN A WAY SO THAT OTHERS CAN INTERPRET THE STORY IN THEIR UNIQUE WAY - SOMETHING THAT MY FAVOURITE ARTISTS DO FOR ME. 

I HOPE YOU LISTEN TO AND ENJOY 'EMOTION IS A WORKHORSE'.

PATRICK
