The story behind Pocketful of Sand
The story of this new single started many years ago when a girl was given sand. Not in her hand but in her shoe. Rather than a cheeky gesture the intention was to make a memory. And indeed it did.
The sketch work you will see in the Pocketful of Sand music video took place in one sitting. The images reflect a storyboard I provided to South Korean artist Jun (“Sean”), Sung Hyun. I spent months trawling the internet to find a ‘visual language’ with which to speak to Sean so that images in my mind’s eye when writing the song could come to life…. For a full background to the making of Pocketful of Sand, watch this 10-minute video.
