THE BRIGHT SIDE

£9.00

A Sunday afternoon live recording at the end of a little tour of Devon & Cornwall, UK. Some of the songs on this cd are inspired by the band “Roadkill”, Dorine’s first band, that plays mainly in pubs and at (cider) festivals, playing music that get feet tapping. The slower tunes suit the intimacy of this “living room” setting of this Devon pub. This album provides a mix of different songs.  Above all, we try to have fun! It’s not 100% flawless, but it’s live and it captures a moment in time.
