"'Calling Card' was created in order to capture the feel of my solo performances, as opposed to previous works which consist of me tinkering at home. It features songs I've written over the past fourteen years.
"There is no cutting between takes. There is no pitch-correction. Just standard compression and EQ with a dash of slapback on the vocals (because old habits die hard). Having begun to play out more and more in recent months, it felt strange to direct people to my recordings, only to clarify that they weren't representative of what I sound like in person. This record ought to change that."
