I wanted to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to the team that helped to make my single ‘Into The West’ a reality!  




Producer: Tom E Morrison 

Piano: Stefano Marzanni  

Violin: Emma Arizza 

Vocals: Natasha Hardy 


Producer: Tom E Morrison 

First and foremost, I’d like say a huge thank you to Producer, Tom E Morrison.   

Tom produced ‘Into The West’ I really couldn’t have made this song sound the way it does without Tom. Tom worked tirelessly making all the arrangements and production sound amazing, and it was so lovely to work with him. 

Tom is a multi-talented producer and composer who has produced international artists (Bonnie Tyler, Roachford), various film scores and countless multi-media. Tom recently produced the soundtrack for the movie ‘Viking Destiny‘ with Terence Stamp which features my vocals in the soundtrack and one of my songs ‘Strong’ from my debut album, ‘Lost In Love’!

Piano: Stefano Marzanni 

Thank you to Pianist, Stefano Marzanni, for creating such a beautiful arrangement of the meandering piano line on ‘Into The West’.  

We have performed this song many times together during previous concerts and it is so nice to now be able to share a recording which Stefano is such a huge part of!

Violin: Emma Arizza 

Thank you to Emma for playing such beautiful runs and bringing the sparkle out with her wonderful violin performance on ‘Into The West’! 

Emma’s performances have taken her across Europe, winning numerous awards and competitions and I just knew I wanted her to join me in the production of ‘Into The West’.

You may think it’s a little strange to say thank you to yourself, but I wanted to say thank you and to remind myself of how far I have come! 


Why ‘Into The West’… 

‘Into the West’ was one of the most highly requested songs for me to cover from my amazing musical family. It is not only one of my all-time favourite songs (if you didn’t know?! it is the end-credit song of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King!), it also has the enya-esque qualities that I find so inspirational, from the production to its wistful storytelling lyrics, the listener can interpret the song however they see fit.


To me, ‘Into The West’ is a song about a hope. As one door closes, another one opens, as you are near the end of this journey, you realise another new exciting unknown adventure is about to begin. 


I hope you enjoy ‘Into The West’ as much as I enjoyed making it for you! To listen, click here!
