Welcome to the Hallam Highwater website!

“Upon Your Shoulders”. Some songs I write I never really understand. The imagery may strike me as sharp, if I’ve been lucky in the writing. The melody may stick in my head easily, or a nice hook may do the sticking. But I still won’t know where the song came from or what it may or may not mean. This song is one of those. And don’t get me wrong, I like it a lot. As on many other occasions, that’s in large part because I’m singing it with Tara Hollingsworth.

The players were: Dale Robert Bishop on a Strat; Bruce Cameron on drums; Peter McFarlane on bass; Brian Nash on acoustic guitar and backing vocals.
