TUNE Lost Winter - Rivers And Streams
Rivers and Streams
Taken from Long Distance Journeys
Vocals/lyrics: Charlotte Francis
Piano and string arrangement: Richard Westwood
We recorded Extra Mile in November 2014 and I remember being blown away by Charlotte's piano playing. I knew I had to record piano to a much higher standard if Lost Winter were to evolve as a band. About a month later a water pipe burst in town and we were all sent home for the day. The house was empty so I plugged my midi keyboard in to my Mac and wrote Rivers and Streams in about ten minutes. I remember being really proud of the results and knowing that whatever we did next this song would be a part of that story.
I think this track went on to set the tone for the whole album and it opened new horizons for me musically. Without Rivers and Streams I doubt Long Distance Journeys would exist and it's really all down to watching Charlotte play piano (and a burst water pipe).
