Today I’m presenting you with the track Afterglow by the brittish composer and piano player Liam MacLean from in Fort William in the Scottish highlands. Liam is now based in Glasgow and started playing the drums as a kid. He later switched to guitar but started making music on the piano about five years ago.
The track Afterglow was released as a single on the 9th of January, 2023.
Tell us something about your track Afterglow!
I don’t know about any funny stories, however the story behind writing this piece of music is a simple one. I hadn’t actively written or released anything for a few months as I had been moving house and setting up my first real home studio, rather than having a desk in the corner of my living room where I would drive my partner mad playing and writing music constantly. So after the move, getting used to the space, and sorting out our home, I simply wanted to sit down and play some music. This was the result. Once I found myself back in the flow of things, this track came easily and helped me to kick my way past writer’s block. The cover is also the view of a sunset from my new music space, it felt appropriate.
Thank you for this Liam!
