Why I Covered Grandma's Hands

Covering this number is a milestone for which I feel especially happy because of what this song means to me. My grandma and I were very close and I would always enjoy going to see her as a kid and to spend time with her not least of all cos she was a brilliant cook and she would always make a fuss over us young ones to make sure we were alright. It was also a welcome break from mama who could be too demanding especially for us lads who liked a bit of rough and tumble and messing about. Grandma only smiled at such stuff and was never bothered it seems.

In later years, when she died I never attended her funeral and for years that pained me greatly. It pained so much that whenever I would see her in my dreams sometimes, I would wake up crying rivers inside. After about seven years the pain healed and now I just remember her real fondly and if I see her in a dream we just pick up where we left off...well, sort of.

I hope you can use this song in the same way to remember your grandma with the same affection I do for mine. Remember also to honour and love the elders who are still here with us also because they are our heritage and without them we would be absolutely  nowhere.

The release date is set for July 23 but you can pre-order it now from online stores like Spotify, iTunes, Amazon etc or from this website. If you're on Spotify you can pre-save it so when it drops it will automatically add to your Spotify library. To do so use this link

    Give thanks for the compliment Judah. I am sorry for your early loss of both grand parents and can empathise with your wish to have had that experience of having them around to grow with which you got from seeing others. Visit and stream the track from here as often as you wish my brother, nuff love!
