Welcome to Pilch Music
New single out now!
Silence of your Love seems to be one of those songs that conjures up different stories for different people. To Darren, my producer it was really a love song, plain and simple. To Pat, my bass player, it’s a soldier coming home from a conflict, who has seen too much and just wants to sit with the women he loves. To another it’s a broken man wanting to rest in the silence with someone he has lost.
I kinda like that about it, that it touches people in different ways.
My initial inspiration came from a verse in the Bible, so, for me it’s a man, broken by life, talking to God.
I guess, whoever you choose to be the provider of the love in the song, the man, unravelled and defeated by life, is the constant.”
Really pumped to announce that I've just signed up with Scarlet River PR for the promotion of my upcoming new music, watch this space!
