Diamonds and Rain

Roey Fitzpatrick


A collection of poetry, illustrations and song lyrics drawn from her years of working, travelling, living and performing abroad.

‘To hear Roey sing is to hear a heart hung on a sleeve unselfconsciously , whether it is the bossa nova tinged Joke Over, the haunting waltz based Remittance Man, or the travel inspired Felt Like Coming Home. In teaming up with Michael fixed to record, produce and play backing on the tracks, the perfect combination came together. He double mic-ed her intimately intertwined guitar picking, lyrics, and golden voice, then added highly selective and effective backings.’
