Merlyn Driver writes that: … he watched, listened, and took photographs as I played my songs and spoke about influences and inspiration. Although I’m sure the photographs were useful, I got the idea that this was much more about Stephen experiencing my ‘musical presence’ first hand – something which he has done time and time again over the following two years! … I’d now say that his creative process is in fact surprisingly similar to my own. Rather than an explosion of sudden and divine inspiration, most of these pieces seem to emerge from a longer journey, punctuated by sporadic bursts of activity but characterized more by contemplation. Perhaps this is all ultimately about making our artistic efforts look effortless.
