I released my new single “Back Again” today. As with most of my songs I co-wrote it. And as with a lot of my songs I sat two people together who never worked together before to help me write it. This time, it was Karen Jules and John Campbell. I worked with John on my debut album, On the Level. The first two songs I recorded for that album (I Wanna Be the One, and Lavender) were done with him.
Karen Jules I met years ago during a gig with vocalist Jacen Duncan, who is featured on the song All Things Gleam, from that same album.
I’m batting 100% with my pairing up success. This song is pure magic. When you get three people together who care deeply about their craft and the presentation of it, then pair it with Tom Coyne (who mastered for artists such as Adele, Michael Jackson, and Sade) quality can’t help but happen.
