About this song:
Every songwriter has one friend that hears their new work and their work in progress first. One perfect sounding board that can always be relied upon for enthusiasm, honesty and good advice. For me, that friend has long been Orlando Perez. Not only is Orlando the DJ for my live sets but, as an artist and musician in his own right, Orlando has the pedigree in house, Latin, jazz, funk, soul and broken beat to know exactly where I’m coming from and exactly where I’m trying to go. Quite simply: Ollie is an indispensable part of the ‘Greg Blackman Music Machine’. This very special song about a very personal story is part of a long ongoing collaboration between us and the first we have decided to release commercially. It is a commitment to be wiser, be stronger and to keep on trying. Ask your Momma for the reasons why. 

More about Greg Blackman: Greg Blackman is known for his unforgettable voice, his powerful songwriting and his passionate approach to his subject matter. His work has been played extensively on BBC Radio, featured on the NME website, played on MTV and reviewed favourably in Blues & Soul Magazine. His voice can be heard on many different genres of music from artists and labels across the world, as well as on commercials for companies such as Coca Cola and Uber.

More about Orlando Perez: Already an established DJ/producer since the early noughties, Orlando cites his main musical influencers as Todd Terry, John Coltrane, Airto Moirera, Lonnie Liston Smith, WAR, Mark Murphy and not only appreciates new jazz & House but all creative forms of music. He’s had releases on Soul Shift, Sup Peeps Records , Bandcamp and Soundcloud as well as producing a folk album for Jason James. Orlando came up with the idea for the composition whilst in Spain – he says ‘I recorded a lot of the background sounds while I was walking around the countryside and my little girl helped me create the Rhodes sounds using Soundbox – she’s one to watch (very proud dad!)’.
