Tell us something about your track Crave!
This piece is an example of a rare moment for me in the creative and compositional process – this one truly did just drop into my lap/out of the sky in around an hour or so.

I lost both of my grandmothers last year, which represented something of a closing of a chapter in my family, with the last close relative from that generation passing away. They saw and experienced so much change and development in their lifetime, living through important world events and experiencing significant societal change, but at heart for them, and for most people, it is the relationships with the people closest to them which mattered most. Not always easy nor simple, with plenty of challenges along the way; but real, genuine and true – life in focus, reflected on through the mists of time.

I like how this piece captures that elusive sense of nostalgia – a strong feeling and an awareness of something important; not always tangible but always present. Something to crave.”

Thank you very much for this Simeon!
