Introducing Shadow Bones – a Hampshire Americana Singer Songwriter supporting Sari Schorr on select dates next month.
Shadow Bones aka Luke Williams was born in lockdown, a challenging time for all of us, which opened the door to Luke’s old demons. Luke said: “Writing songs in lockdown was cathartic, a means of therapy. It transported me back to a dark period of time I had left behind when I was battling sobriety demons, in the early years of recovery.
The single ‘Better View‘ is about exactly that, seeing life in a better view. Imagining if you could maintain that childhood first love throughout your whole life. When you had no jobs, money worries, commitments, all you had was each other and that was all you needed to think about. I remember when I was a child looking at my parents and seeing their troubles and difficulties and thinking I never want to grow up. But before I knew it I was a parent myself dealing with probably similar difficulties. My dad used to say ‘I didn’t need to start worrying about life until my head was over his shoulder’. Well now I’m that tall, maybe if we all sometimes took a better view on life, the world might be a happier place.”
