Our new album - Step Off And Fly

Our new album has been released and is available on Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify and other established distribution outlets. It is of course also available on this website on the Music page.

Music that matters”

Hilary writes vocal-led story-songs sung by Lucy Pickering as well as exciting jazz-influenced instrumentals. She explores themes of new beginnings, mindfulness, change, celebration and loss. Her music has one foot in the late 60s-early 70s and one foot firmly in the present day.

Songs on the album range from the funky, upbeat Mojo, to the re-imagined and jazz reharmonised Eleanor Rigby and Big Yellow Taxi; from the soulful anthem on mindfulness, Just Breathe, to the Celtic sound of Grass Is Always Greener; Ingrid's Song is wonderfully lyrical and gentle while the dynamic instrumentals Sarah's Hour and Together burst through like sparkling spritzers on a hot summer's day. Lots of variety but all containing Hilary Burt's hallmark sound.
