Former Dire Straits bassist delivers intimate film. When God Made Time is the first single from John Illsley’s album Testing The Water from 2014. Testing The Water is the first full-length album for John since 2010. The album was launched at London’s Jazz Cafe on 19 June 2014.
“I was missing being in the studio and playing music seriously,” says Illsley. “This record was an important one for me to make. The last few years have been so turbulent politically, militarily and personally, and I wanted to try and create some songs that reflected these strange times and perhaps were worthy of sharing with others.”
