We All Fall Down features the quirky lyrics and vocals of jazz singer Laura Collins set to the original compositions and arrangements of trumpeter Ben Thomas. An acoustic sound bringing together an eclectic mix of musical styles, drawing from elements of free jazz, folk rock (without guitars), the sea shanty and classic piano pop reminiscent of artists like The Cinematic Orchestra, Chick Corea and
Robert Wyatt.

In 2008 trumpeter Ben Thomas began recording the album We All Fall Down. This collection of songs featured Ben's compositions and arrangements set to the lyrics of jazz singer Laura Collins who also sang lead vocals for the album. The album also features contributions from Tom Greenhalf (piano), Erika Lyons (double bass), Scott Hammond (drums) and Emily Preston (saxophone).
We All Fall Down was released in 2009.

Tall stories, bad dreams and Chinese whispers set the literary scene whilst a dark fantasy context provides the obscure concept. The ethereal ambiance of songs Palace Of Gold, Red, Cinderella and the mysterious Dame Gothel conjures make believe characters living in a bizarre imaginary world. In contrast, the paranoid and perplexing Blackout, Freud Plays Bad Noise and the disturbing tones of We All Fall Down pursue and reflect the curious yet flawed states of the human condition. A story is being told here, but not one that is apparently obvious. The lilting and often haunting sounds provide a suitable backdrop to the ambiguous and compelling narrative.
