- Americana UK - Liverpool, UK - 14 February 2011

Lieven Scheerlinck lived in Barcelona while Hollie Fullbrook lived in New Zealand. The two knew each other through their music, but had not met. This all changed in June 2010, when they embarked on a small yet noble tour of northern Spain. One hospital visit, one birthday cake, several piggy-back rides, a couple of tequilas and thousands of wrong turns later, and they’d recorded six songs during one week, in one room of one charming old apartment in Barcelona.

  1. Little Notes

  2. Feathers

  3. Running Through the Night

  4. Lost Son

  5. Down South

All songs played, recorded and mixed by Hollie Fullbrook & Lieven Scheerlinck in Barcelona, July 2010.
