About Heavenly

 

Abi met renowned songwriter Boo Hewerdine (of Patience of Angels fame) at a songwriting workshop in February 2012.

Boo actually gave Abi two hours to write the lyrics for a tune of his, but she misheard him and thought she only had one. When she finished early after a furious 60 minutes of lyric-writing and showed him her work, he liked it so much he recommended she record and release the song.

Abi says "I wasn't really sure of the song's identity as a solo record for myself. I couldn't play Boo's guitar part and it wasn't in a good key for my voice, so I'm ashamed to say it sat in my box of songwriting ideas for nearly a decade."

 

It was only in 2020's lockdown, when she made time to work on more original material, that she re-discovered the song and decided to finally find a home for it.

"I'd started doing lots of acapella arranging by this point, under my Acapella With Abi umbrella.

I really felt the song come alive as a heartfelt, lilting, vintage-sounding love song. It was such an endearing melody and lyrically, it was a tribute to someone very much loved in every way.

The arranging took an awful lot longer than the lyric writing did, but I felt like I’d finally found its personality."

So she recorded, mixed and produced her acapella version in the latest lockdown, just using her own voice in multiple harmony parts and re-connected again with Boo. He loved it and gave his permission for its release, which happens to be nine years (to the exact day) later!
