If you want your songs performed in a traditional format of emotive live piano/vocal harking back to the singer/songwriters of the 70's with subject matter as diverse as being the midlle generation between children and older parents, self harm, dementia, love and lost love in middle age (yes it happens) and songs about nature, consumerism and walking all washed down with a healthy dose of humour, cynicism, positivity and self deprecation then I am the artist for you.
BIG NEWS. New album is out in February. 10 songs with a diverse array of subject matter such as walking, nature, self harm, dementia, falling in and out of love in one's 50's, love for family generations below and above. Beautifully produced by James Merryweather and using local musicians like Gareth Lee, Martin Skews, Jules Berry and Vic Aboudara. More info and soundbites to come.
Below are some of my songs live on Soundcloud. They will be on the album with full band treatment. Love playing them live and these are all live, no overdubs. Download them here.
I walk a lot. My time spent walking is enmeshed into my music. It encourages creativity. I am lucky that I engage with the Cornish landscape, watching it change over seasons and getting deep down to the DNA of every place I go. A day walking attunes me to its rhythm; it stirs something and that wonderful muse bubbles to the surface, offering a lyric, a riff or a mood ready to be explored. Symbiosis in action.
Keep in touch via my facebook and twitter accounts (nav bar, top of page). I've also got a youtube account with a couple of songs not on the website plus other versions of songs going up on soundcloud.
So another path opens up.
