'At times intense, at others times joyous, always groovin'' - Dennis Rollins

Influenced by the likes of Les McCann & Ramsey Lewis, Sometimes Saying Your Name offers a new take on the traditional piano trio formula. The album kicks off with the lead track, You Happen To Me, an uplifting vocal track built around a heavy riff. Platt slows down the tempo with the album's ballads Sometimes Saying Your Name & Inside A Kiss, both with a real focus on melody. He showcases the keyboard skills that saw him feature for Illum Sphere on his track, Near The End with Half Life - a track with another huge riff. Born To Cry is the album's second vocal, a minor key track with synth work heavily influenced by The Isley Brothers & Claus Ogerman. The McCann inspiration is at its most overt througout Take Me Where The Love Is, a funky piano-led essay on creating variety over one tonal centre, a theme that is mirrored on the album's second track Streams.

Sometimes Saying Your Name, is an all-analogue recording which features Frank Felix (Lonnie Liston Smith, Acoustic Alchemy, Nelly Furtado) on bass and John Boulton (Xero Slingsby & The Works, Utah Saints) on the drums.
