We hope you enjoy Simon Hanson’s contribution to our Debut series. Best known as the drummer with Squeeze (currently on tour), Simon released his debut solo album Songs from the Silver Box in 2013.
To be given the opportunity (albeit self imposed), to make a solo record is like getting a brand new exercise book on the first day of term. The crisp white blank canvas stares you in the face and for the first time every single note, word, sound and nuance will be yours. After a lifetime in studios making other people’s music I was at last to create my own monster.
