2014 album from the multiple Brit and Grammy winner and former Dire Straits bassist. Recorded and produced with Guy Fletcher at A-Bay Studios and British Grove, TESTING THE WATER sees the 'engine room of Dire Straits' in fine form. from the opening riff of the first single, 'When God Made Time', John's classic sound is unmistakable. As the man who was a significant element in the pace and feel of Dire Straits' music from the outset, this familiarity is not surprising 'that's not me being influenced by the band, that's just the way I've always played and it continues in my own work' he reflects. Written over the last three years these songs are deeply personal narratives, 'the last few years have been so turbulent politically, militarily and personally and I wanted to try and create some songs that reflected these strange times and perhaps were worthy of sharing with others.'
