Taking Time Out was created in Juzzies own studio.
His story is perfectly told in the album’s delightful opening track ‘La La’ – Juzzie’s deep resonate voice, his gorgeous guitar picking, bluesy harmonica and sublime melodies setting the tone for a stunning album. There are lush, evocative instrumental tracks like ‘Gentle Ways’ or ‘Dreaming’ and a surprising blues slide version of ‘Waltzing Matilda’ There are more groove-based tracks like the driving, stomp box blues of ‘Be Love’ the rhythmic shuffle of ‘Find Our Way’ or sweet pop in the ‘Keys’. Also the beautiful hymn to surfing ‘Ride On’ which seems custom made for a sun-drenched, endless summer surf film.
“I spent over a year working on this album and it was a beautiful flowing journey. It all started when I set up my own studio. I learnt how to create the sounds I felt the songs needed. Having my own studio gave me the freedom to record only when I felt clear and play-full. My favorite time to record was between 4am-6am when everything was so still and our kids were still dreaming. A huge part of music is energy, how you feel and live all goes into the recordings. When you listen to this album, ‘take some time out’ to feel life and live it with love,” says Juzzie
