I am an avid animal lover, and was engaged like most New Zealanders, with the extraordinary journey that Happy Feet had made to Pekapeka beach just up the road from me on the Kapiti coast. Suddenly, a few nights after he had arrived, this song began writing itself in my head - I couldn't stop it if I tried.
I quickly demo'd it in my home studio, and then took it to the brilliant Ross McDermott of Soundsgood studios in Paraparaumu, where we proceeded to put it down over the course of a few short sessions. We were accompanied by Errol Maffey, (of Nimlin Films) a renowned local film-maker who took footage of us recording the song. Later Errol filmed additional footage on location at Pekapeka Beach, and Wellington Zoo.
Many thanks to Ross and Errol and their amazing creativity, and all who encouraged me during the project.
