The Punchbowl is the stage name under which I released a demo, Stand By Me, in September 2017. This collection of four songs was written, performed, and recorded entirely independently in my garden shed as an expressive outlet not initially intended for release. Upon looking back at these latest songs (I have written and recorded in a variety of guises over the last decade with different bands) I saw something purer and more natural than anything I’d ever done before, and so for the first time in my life felt motivated to set it free, so here they are. Born as a private outlet, these songs possess an authentically lo-fi and emotional sound that I hope you enjoy. They’re rough and raw, but they’re unapologetically honest, and unapologetically me.
