This is the album I've been working on for a long time. Mainly recorded in at my house in Falmouth during my third year of university, for me it captures that period of my life and puts it in an album shaped bottle that I'll be able to go back to and use to remember the good times

I didn't think it was finished when I moved back to Birmingham, but I haven't recorded a single note related to the album since moving back here, I've just tidied it up and it's ready to roll. It was finished, it was finished ages ago, I was just tripping balls. You lose the ability to be objective when you're the only person working on something like this.

There are songs I started writing like two years ago on here (Velvet) and songs that I wrote and recorded on the same day (Shadow Is), I like the idea of having a mixture of songs that have been crafted and sculpted over a period of time and having songs that are primitive and raw, as if they've just come out of my musical womb.


released April 7, 2015

All songs written, performed and produced by T-man Ward (check ma flow)

Apart from Interlude, that was James Howie and me just jamming out.

Special Guests:

Josh Evans and Louis Crump on "Spare Time" mashing about in my room shouting with the tambourine and just going crazy for a bit.

Josh Evans & T-man two person choir at the end of "Seaweed"

Thanks to Hugo, Josh and Louis for putting up with my loud guitar amp and mood swings whilst I was making this album, Thanks to Rachael Gallagher for listening to me whine about my music all the time. Thanks to Antti Saario & Johny Lamb for giving me the encouragement to finish it via uni marks. Thanks to Logic Pro X for it's drummer feature haha (I didn't use it for everything I promise i actually did midi sequence too)

There's so many people I wanna thank, like my mom even though she hasn't even heard it yet. thanks mom.

Everybody thank Joel Hayden for letting me use his picture from when we went camping in the woods.

and thank YOURSELF for being on this page

Track Name: Mirror Skies
Saw the end of the tunnel today
haven't seen the light of day for years
I heard that grey turned back to white

Summer nights make it alright
so you can know where you belong

Saw the plough fall from the sky
watch the stars turn into eyes
i do
what if they're looking at us too?

Mirror skies
in the night
I wonder where you'll take me to

I can't see the horizon from here
are we near?
Take a seat on the ground
and hear this all out

Track Name: Spare Time
I know what i'm gonna do with my summer
i'm gonna leave it all free, and let my spare time take me for a ride
Track Name: Shadow Is
Take a seat,
Rest your knees,
Humble dreams,

Hook through heart,
Start to part,
Golden time,
a thousand crimes,
are mine,
two of a kind.

Pulled apart,
We're far too smart,
Save your skin,
Forget what's within your chest,
It's all for the best.

Time well spent,
Rules well bent,
Air we've shared,
Tangled hair,
I care.

Your shadow's everywhere.
Track Name: Seaweed
We're gonna go to the beach x100

I know that you want to, everybody goes to see the sea when it's high
I don't really want to have to brush the sand off of my feet when I get dry
I know it's a small price to pay, walk to waves feet sink in the sand
Seaweed around my ankles and hands
