Liam Thorpe Live (EP)

Liam recorded these tracks with me in May 2017, with the intention of printing a four track CD that he could sell at live shows.

It was an intimate recording session in my lounge room and we wanted to capture the honesty and simplicity of a songwriter and his guitar.

With Liam’s sudden and untimely passing, we sadly never got to finish the EP. Liam had decided to include bass and snare on two of the tracks. We’d recorded brushed snare for “Lasso Around My Heart” and had talked about including some upright bass. Unfortunately only a guide track was ever recorded for “Franky and Dan” which was to be Track 4 on the EP.

In September 2019 Ben Gibbons put down some double bass on “Lasso Around My Heart” to compliment the already present brushed snare and I was able to finish mixing the three tracks.

I will remember Liam for his poetic songwriting, his witty humour and his unashamedly loving nature. He was a beautiful soul and he is sorely missed.
