about

an album inspired by the 2004 European Elections. Almost called 'Kilroy-Silk's a Bastard', but instead of focussing on the insanity of UKIP, I took their major problem, as I saw it - that being ingratitude for what they had - and turned it back on myself. So did a thematic album (don't say the 'c-word'... concept) about all the things I was grateful for.

The unifying theme of all of them, was that I didn't deserve any of them... hence the 'Grace' bit.

Enjoy.

about

Steve Lawson UK

The UK's most celebrated solo bassist, here with lots of looped/layered solo albums, & collaborations, most notably with genius singer Lobelia. Dig in deep, there's a lot to discover.

Pretty much all the music here is 'Pay What You Think It's Worth', so listen as much as you like, & do what it says on the tin...

As the website strap-line goes, it's the soundtrack to the day you wish you'd had.

Track Name: Grace And Gratitude
The title track is a meditation on the two concepts central to the album. I think Grace and Gratitude go hand in hand. Grace being unmerited favour - if you didn't earn it, you have to be grateful for it, right?

I'm the recipient of Grace on a daily basis, and I try to give as good as I get. Passing on the kindnesses done to me. Infectious goodness.

Sometimes the hardest element of Grace is accepting it - we want to 'pay our debts', but if someone gives us something, we're lost for how to do that. Learning to accept it and pay it forward can help change the world.
