Before he died earlier this year, Karl Broadie wrote many wonderful songs. One of my favourites is ‘Only a Moment’, from the album One Million Emeralds. Karl’s version, produced by Matt Fell, features that characteristic ache in his voice, that sense of time lost and pain not quite past. Aleyce’s version stands on its own; she brings her own experiences to the song and pays tribute to Karl at the same time.
Aleyce’s ‘Only a Moment’ is one of the songs appearing on the forthcoming tribute album, which will be released on 18 November 2016. Watch Aleyce’s live version of this song below.
