Fiona's Comments

Refreshingly simple yet poignant take on this classic tune by up-and-coming pianist-vocalist. The comparisons to Connick and Buble are likely inevitable, but also probably deserved; there were several songs on this album I enjoyed.

About the Album

The happy-on-life feeling having only intensified over the previous few years, the material on this album is purely what is on my mind and heart. Lyrically this is me at my most vulnerable, musically it's some of the most fun I've had playing the piano and singing. That's where the idea to self-title the album comes from.
