Love Will Come Round / The Bellbirds

The Bellbirds

A brief moment of nostalgia…

Malcolm Ibell, sound engineer and live mixer extraordinaire, sent me through this file that he stumbled across when he was cleaning out his hard drive recently. It’s from a live performance that The Bellbirds gave in 2013.  The song is ‘Love Will Come Round’, which I wrote a few months prior to this performance.

Playing in The Bellbirds, with Sandy Mill, Don McGlashan and Sean Donnelly – three of my most favourite and beloved musicians on the planet – was an incredible source of happiness for me. We started an album together, but things happened, children were born, lives were moved back and forth across oceans, careers transformed, and we never quite finished it. Perhaps one day.

Malcolm recorded this live at the Great Lake Festival in Taupo. The quality of the audio is a testament to his sterling work, as this mix came straight off the desk.  It makes me feel most honoured to think I shared a stage with these fine people.

Anyway, here it is…
