‘Novel Study’ is about my 4 favourite chapter books as a kid.
On New Year’s Day, my family went for a walk in the woods by our house. I happened to catch a video of a magical unscripted interaction between my children and just had to use this genuine moment for my song about being a kid again.
Thanks to Matt Liefl who popped by the studio and lended his sweet harmonies on this track.
