'Yara's voice was where it all began, inspiring my melodies, which in turn inspired Yara's words in French... which in turn inspired Ed Harcourt's words in English.
Yara'n'Yared was born, a musical duo with a shared passion and desire to create timeless songs together.
Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, this album I have produced is the quintessence of my musical universe, combining the very spirit of Yara'n'Yared - a duo united as one in perfect harmony.'
