Deeper Still (Live In London)

from Ten Years On: Live In London by Steve Lawson

supported by


Another of the tunes about grief, bereavement etc. This one was written for Eric Roche - an oustanding guitarist, who was taken away by Cancer a few years ago. I met him just as he was first diagnosed, and we really hit it off. We'd known about each other for years, and lived parallel careers, as musicians, teachers, magazine writers...

We had all kinds of plans to tour and record together, and there was a tune of his called Deep Deep Down that we wanted to record together. We never got to do it, but I wrote this companion piece to it, Deeper Still, and have a solo arrangement of Deep Deep Down too.

Please go and investigate Eric's music, he was a remarkable musician and human being.

(Just in case it confuses anyway, Michael Manring - in the photo - isn't on the track. The gig that this was recorded at as a joint gig between us. We both played solo and then together. Sadly, his half wasn't recorded, but it felt good to recognise where there gig took place and with whom in the photos...)
