Breath is an subscriber-only album of my covers of songs by artists who've inspired me ('breath of inspiration' and all that!)

  4. Queen Bitch (by David Bowie, in Velvet Underground style)
  5. Famous Blue Raincoat (by Leonard Cohen)
  6. Zoo Blues (by Robin Williamson)
  7. Spirit Beautiful (by Mike Heron)
  8. A Leaf Must Fall (by Clive Palmer)
  9. The Monk From The Mountain of Sorrow (my song but based on the life of Leonard Cohen)
