“Absolutely superb. Captivating… The atmospheric London’s on Fire richly deserves the widest possible audience.’ Paul Sexton (Billboard, BBC Radio 2, Sunday Times)
Secondhand Heart is the first in a concept EP entitled Songs of Solace which follows the beginning, middle and end of a relationship and explores themes of mental health and depression. The EP features acoustic heartfelt songs with female vocal, guitar, cello, violin & piano. Secondhand Heart is about embarking on a new relationship but carrying with you all the baggage of former relationships. It’s about that desire for intimacy and connection, but with the knowledge that it could all fall apart like it has before.
Songs of Solace EP features Midori Jaeger on cello and Elisabeth Flett on Violin, was successfully crowdfunded in 2021 and is being released alongside a music video series.
