Last week I was saddened and upset to find out that an old musical and work acquaintance Paul Barrett passed away suddenly. I first met Paul in a work for the dole project called Musicoz I was running in Mullumbimby. He had just moved to the area and was trying to establish his colourful community drum project called The Samba Blissta's on the North Coast. He was a lovely man and we ended up sharing some music at his little house in South Golden Beach and made this recording together spontaneously. A shame his drum parts aren't louder. Its a song I will now call 'the voice', originally written at a time my sister was very sick during child birth and I will now also dedicate it to the spirit of Paul. I love you mate.
