about

Stare Into The Dark was recorded in Chris Gillespie's old pink cottage house, a short walk from the main studio. The Drums, Bass and Keys were crammed into the kitchen, Acoustic and Electric Guitars were both in the lounge room with amplifiers behind closed bedroom doors.

Chris sat and occasionally roamed from his corner of the kitchen, where he was surrounded by racks of expensive gear and an old LCD montior. From here, he was in charge of handing out glasses of water, tea or coffee as required. We were all wedged into our small corner of the cottage to limit the potential catastrophe resulting from a failure to navigate the minefield of audio cables and microphones rigged across doorways and open floorspace.

We recorded the album live over a 3-day period, after a couple of rehearsals in Nick's Ashfield home. All of the performers collaborated on song arrangement and creative decision making. This record would not have been possible without the high calibre of talent that contributed to its creation.

Track Name: Hazel Eyes
Don't cry,
Your hazel eyes
Deserve to shine and smile

Worry not,
I'll be around
To comfort and console

The day is new,
You'll fall into
My arms when you can't stand

Like a crutch,
I'll keep you up
And hold you should you lay

A full moon
Calls you
To see light
And recognise

A tear stained face,
To wash away
The troubles of the world

A full moon
Calls you
To see light
And recognise

I'll be here,
Throughout your years
Until the very end

Shining stars,
Amongst the dark
Night is not alone

Don't cry,
Your hazel eyes
Deserve to shine and smile
