In 2002, Tony Gould and Emma Gilmartin recorded Tomorrow, Just You Wait and See in the peaceful surrounds of Move's recording studio. Since then they have been lucky enough to revisit this place several times to record some of their favourite songs.
"I am delighted to share this music with you now. Home and family have been the focus of my life over the past few years, having had two babies in two years and immersing myself in motherhood."
"Many of the songs you will hear on this album reflect this special time in my life. The Rainbow Connection, You Are My Sunshine, and Que Sera are songs I learnt as a child, and are now some of the songs I sing to my own babies. I hope you will enjoy our interpretations of these timeless compositions." - Emma Gilmartin
