“It took a few hours to write though I received the incredible original beat from Da Capo during lockdown and had it for almost six months before I could find time to write on it.

“I invited Sun-EL Musician to join us on this song a few weeks back and he brought such an incredible sonic atmosphere to the music.”

“It’s a beautiful whirlwind summer love song and I cannot wait to see people across the world dancing to it this summer to celebrate love and life given the madness we’ve been going through.”

“Lighthouse” is currently available on all streaming platforms.
