All The World's A Stage - Debut Digital Song Release

A new song written by Barlow & Smith had it's digital debut on YouTube, written in the depths of the first UK Lockdown in April 2020, whilst Barlow was about to welcome the birth of her first baby, her and A.C. Smith decided to write a song in reaction to the Theatre's being dark, and alongside so many of their colleagues being out of work, the hope that there would be live performance once again - although perhaps having no idea that Theatre's would be dark for quite as long as they would be.

Bella said "At a time when we were all apart, unable to see family and friends, writing this song, and having this incredible community of performers come together to record it remotely for us was such a blessing and a hopefully outpouring of creativity. I remember sending out PDF scores and MP3 demos via email from my phone hours after welcoming our little girl into the world. At a time when we were all so far apart from everyone, it was amazing to feel connected through music and lyrics. And as Shakespeare said, 'All The World's A Stage' so lets find another platform for where our stage is". May, 2020.
