Singled Out: Dawn Landes and Piers Faccini's Book Of Dreams
Collaboration is strange. Normally songwriting is a solitary pursuit for me, but when Piers Faccini and I started writing songs together it came naturally. One morning, I was sitting in his kitchen in the South France trying to think of a song idea for the day and I'd pulled a bunch of Sufi poetry books from the shelves. He told me he'd written a book of poetry inspired by the Sufi's.
When I looked through his poems one of them caught my eye. "This could be a song" I told him and pointed to the 'book of dreams' line "and this could be the chorus!" I had some music that I thought might fit it, and it did! Magic. We reworded a few things and 20 minutes later we had a song.
