Single Focus: Steve Hensby

"Everything was pretty much first take and was captured very nicely."

Single title? Stage Fright

What's the song about? It's about not being afraid of diving into a situation head on and trying your best to see what happens.

How long did it take to write/record? It was written very quickly in maybe an hour. We recorded everything in a few hours at the studio. Everything was pretty much first take and was captured very nicely.

Is this track from a forthcoming release/existing release? It's the first single from my upcoming release. I have been writing lots of acoustic jazz and brazilian inspired material so it's all going to be lumped onto an album.

What was inspiring you during the song's writing and recording? Having the production stripped back and having everything very grass roots and natural. Lyrically I wanted to write something uplifting and positive. Take the bad with the good it all helps.

We'll like this song if we like... Dancing, clapping, going 'oooooooooo' a lot, great drums!!

Do you play it differently live? I play this particular song the same live; it's almost a live studio recording to be honest!

When and where is your launch/next gig? 19 Nov at Ellington Jazz Club.
