If you've never heard any of my music before don't listen to this song! If you have heard some of my music before you might notice it's a bit different from the rest.

The story behind it goes something like this;
I was visiting a friend at the acquired brain injury ward of a local hospital recently. There was a woman on the ward who I quite unimaginatively nicknamed The Screamer because that's all she did all day long. While my friend was sleeping and The Screamer was screaming, I came across an app that claimed to translate any language on earth to English, so I decided to try it out. I snuck into The Screamer's room and left my phone there for a little while with the app open to work it's magic. I took what it translated, set it to music and unimaginatively named the song The Screamer;

The Screamer

Don't be scared come close
I can see you're lost
Screamers can't feel anything but love

Love Love Love Love Love.....

That's not pain you hear
Strange sound to your ears
Unaccustomed to the sound of love

Love Love Love Love Love.....

You say sing something shiny happy bright
Well I can be as shiny as a star
That glitters, bursting, explodes into life
That burns and pulls you darker into night like

Love Love Love Love Love.....

Sweet young thing gone wrong
Join us and you'll find
That you can't feel anything but love

Love Love Love Love Love
Love Love Love Love Love
Love Love Love Love Love....

The Screamer by Ríona Sally Hartman

This song was brought to you by the letter S and the number 5.......and musicians Thibaud Keller on guitar, Arthur Johnson on bass, Bonnie Stewart on drums and sound engineer Aidan OBrien. Aidan is studying sound engineering in college and this song was recorded as an assignment for his course. We had a brilliant weekend in the studio and ended up recording a few jazz standards too.
