    One night, fresh from his first big break-up, a 23-year-old Graham Panther is hanging out at a friend's house when she pulls out a massive bag of weed.

    At the beginning of 2019, country singer Felicity Urquhart was preparing for a huge year of performing and publicity. She was about to release Frozen Rabbit, her first solo album in a decade. Creating the record had been an extended labour of love for her and her husband, Glen Hannah, also a musician and producer. But the year would unfold in ways that no one saw coming, and the album would mark a turning point in Felicity's career and her life.
