    Recording 'Into the Light' has been a labour of love, so it seemed only fitting to spare no expense on the design and packaging. The CD comes in a heavyweight card gatefold sleeve with a beautiful lyric booklet and bespoke artwork by no other than the amazing Tenby artist, Guy Manning.

It's a wake-up call for procrastinators inspired by a song of the same title by the Incredible String Band.


Sleepers Awake!

Sleepers awake! Before it's too late.
Put an end to your dreaming and plans.
Although some say it's wise to take your time,
The world will not wait as they slip through your hands.

The letters you'd write, the sorrys that you'd say,
The wrongs you would right given one more day.
The clock keeps ticking the time's getting late.
The world will not wait. Sleepers awake!

Don't live a life to another's plan,
You hold the future in your hand.
Time deals the cards but you choose what you take.
The world will not wait, Sleepers Awake!
