Laura and Harvey along with bass player Chris Chiarcos wrote seven of the songs on this album during their two and a half week here in the UK during Spring 2015 when they also managed to record the whole album – most tracks being recorded live in the studio with an all star band including Danny Thompson, Liam Genockey, Hossam Ramzy and James McMillan to name but a few, while Harvey has spent the following year arranging strings and horn parts, and completing production on the record.
Human is what can best be described as an eclectic blend of Motown, Jazz, Dub, Soul, RnB, Rock and Pop! This is our hot tip for the year!
