Roachford talks about his new album 'Twice in a Lifetime'
YOU'VE GOT A NEW ALBUM DUE IN SEPTEMBER ENTITLED 'TWICE IN A LIFETIME' - WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND IT?
AR: I was writing over a period of time just getting stuff together and working out where I wanted to go. From my experience, you don’t really know what you’re doing when you start, you just go with it and it’s about creativity. You let the flow happen, it’s organic. Eventually, you think “oh this is where I want to be, this is where I’m heading”. It became quite obvious that the soulful side of me wanted to come out more. I’ve been listening to a lot of older soul music over the last couple of years; a lot of Bobby Womack and Al Green of course. It’s weird how you can listen to something for so long and still be discovering new things about it and find new depths to it. That’s that stuff that still really turns me on and seems to come out when I write.
