Handmade Journey Album


The Handmade Journey physical album. All artwork by Katy Hooper with fully painted colour case and illustrated lyrics booklet. The lyrics booklet includes lyrics to all tracks, each lovingly decorated with fine artwork relating to each song, or the place where the song was written or inspired by.



‘Handmade Journey’ is written for the dreamers and nomads of the world. Each song on this 11 track album is based on the 4 years I’ve spent in Latin America and Spain and the adventures that have come with it. I hope that it inspires other people to open their mind and heart to new experiences and cultures and to enjoy the un-ending kindness of the strangers you meet on the road.
