Brian said: “I love Amble, it is a special place. A few years ago, Amble resident Helen Simpson suggested I do a song about the town, so now I have done one. Sadly, she recently passed away, before I released the song, but I think she would have loved it. The response to the song has been fantastic. I would love it to go viral.”

The track was produced and recorded by Ally Lee at Alnwick’s Mill Studios. Isabel Morrison is on the piano.
