The songs on his latest offering, “Don Your Suit of Lights” were written in a woodland farmhouse in the south of France, isolated and tranquil, reflecting the mood of this charming debut solo album. The name, The Mostar Diving Club is taken from a town in Bosnia, where his fathers family hail from; as a right of passage into adulthood, young men dive from an old bridge into a very shallow river below, a distance of some thirty meters, get it wrong and you are in serious trouble. Having made several trips to this part of the world, both before and after the war he has met with the divers and seen them do their stuff.
