Welcome back the great Si Scott!

Broken Hearts Make it Rain (self-initiated piece). Words are the main influence on the majority of Si’s work - whether it’s something he’s heard, read or a song lyric etc… Words have always played a big part in his life (not only in his work). ‘Broken Hearts Make It Rain’ is a Radiohead lyric which, as soon as he heard it, Si scribbled down in his notebook for future reference.
