‘Working with Mahmood has been a unique experience. The success of the record is proof of his ability to tap into spirituality and emotion that is lacking in a lot of today’s music’, said arranger Doug Emery who has worked with Barry Gibb, Madonna, Barbra Streisand, and Chayanne.

‘Mahmood’s music is full of positivity and I loved the opportunity to both arrange and orchestrate many of the songs we performed – and conduct the fantastic Willoughby Symphony Orchestra during the live and studio sessions. I hope we get to do it again soon’, said David Griffin.
