Running To The Future

The final 3 minutes of the film ‘Finding Your Feet’ wasn’t quite working…and we’d tried numerous musical options from many well known songwriters (and a few composers). I’d been finger-picking a pattern on the acoustic guitar over the scene and gradually began to find spaces where lyrics could fit around the dialogue whilst subtly adding to the narrative. I showed a rough version to Richard and he asked me to write some lyrics. I produced the single with Elkie Brooks singing and its coming out as a single on Virgin Records. Richard loves it but his wife’s banned him from singing it around the house anymore.
