The journey to this album is the result of a sequence
of fortunate events. I have played in cover bands for
most of my musical life and recently began playing solo.
People were asking for a copy of my record which I didn’t
have. This coincided with the writing of Wialki which was
picked up by the Sounds of the Wheatbelt - a WAM
(Western Australian Music) project. I wrote another sixteen songs in six months and in eight days I recorded seven of them and here we are - my first record. I hope you enjoy it. Pete Byfield

"It's almost what you would call traditional country in a sense, but in another sense it's quite filmic, textural and wide. It sort of disarms you in a way with simplicity and then before you know it, you're in a sweeping landscape with hints of australian red dust and riders." William Bowden, King Willy Sound
