background:
Gordy Goudie and new percussionist Cherisse Osei joined the band for their acoustic phase.

The concept was always a possibility since the successful promotion of Big Music where Jim, Charlie and Mark Kerr performed acoustic versions of several songs at various radio stations and smaller venues.

The concert at Zermatt Unplugged in Switzerland marked the start of many acoustic shows performed under the Travelling Light banner.

The Acoustic album was recorded with this line-up during the summer and released at the end of the year.

Catherine AD also appeared with this line-up for live and promotional appearances (including the Hackney Empire concert and the Strictly Come Dancing show).
