Empty Nest

Announcing Empty Nest: an album of 12 songs I wrote about motherhood, with vocals sung by Nataley Freeman. We recorded it in lockdown, in the the first half of 2021. It explores the feelings of a woman facing the moment when her daughter leaves home.

Want to take a listen? It’s now available here: Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon Music and Deezer.

Listen to the whole album, or buy a physical CD on bandcamp.

Here’s what people are saying about Empty Nest:

“Absolutely beautiful. Very emotionally connected. I don’t think anyone, from teens to 80s, would listen to any of it without being completely touched”.

Tabitha Webb – West End singer, Christine in Phantom of the Opera and Cosette in Les Miserables

“So so lovely. They really do lend themselves to a staged production of some sort. Such a poignant subject, beautifully sung.”

Chris Eaton – songwriter for Cliff Richard

“What power and emotion, it nearly blew me over.”

Steven Faux – composer

“Nat brings such quality and emotion to the lyrics.”

A local mother

“I listened to the songs and although I had never talked to Fiona about my experience as a mother, I felt like she was telling my story. It resonated with me on every level.”
