about

"A very personal statement from an engaged musician!" - VITAL WEEKLY

'Enough' is pianist/composer Laura Cole's first solo album. It is a double album: one disc is entitled 'This is Water', and is a collection (on tracks 1 to 10) of arrangements of pieces given to Laura for the album from esteemed friends and colleagues, such as Robert Mitchell, Alex Wilson, Nikki Iles, Jason Yarde and Corey Mwamba; and the other disc, entitled 'As Warm As The Sun', is a collection of compositions and improvisations by Laura herself. This album was developed during a residency at Lyth Arts Centre, in Wick, Scotland, in September 2017; a few months later, it was sensitively recorded at Steinway Recording by Spencer Cozens. 'Enough' represents a highly personal gathering of musical ideas and intimate emotional journeys, and is an attempt to express this in the solo format.

The basis for this album was inspired by Laura reading the sculptor Anne Truitt's journal, Daybook, and is an exploration of emotional themes related to the nature of composing and improvising, both as a musician and a mother. The wider context to both the conception and recording of 'Enough' was an attempt to express the real life challenges outside of music which Laura experienced during that time; this context was explored and brought into focus during the residency, in particular in regards to the relationship between the private and public spheres within creative processes, and the situating of music-making within this.
