Sorry, I could simply write all the lyrics to the great Pink Floyd song and that would sum up my mind somewhat, but alas I guess I will fill you all in on what’s been going down. 2020 has been erm wonderfully sad?
I wrote the song about mental health just before the dreaded C word hit the UK and as songs often do it has taken on a meaning of its own with so many wishing to hug there loved ones or see there children, parents or family. For me the mental health aspect of this lockdown is huge and I for one have also suffered, many of you who know me personally understand my own struggles with this game we cal life.
I sit and wonder what happened to the artist, the real songwriter who would craft a story or a piece of music that puts with the emotion only a writer can add. What happened to the bands of misfits who banded together to create a world where other misfits could fit in? Everyday I hearContinue reading “The art form of music”
Cardiff was amazing and I still relive it daily! Such a cool city and a it has a wonderful lust for country music. So to share this night with as many of you as possible is truly magical for me.
I remember actually announcing the Cardiff gig, way back in May. It seemed like so far away and the build up was insane. Three singles and lots of songwriting in between and the gig came around so quickly! It seemed like just yesterday we booked it and it was over in a flash. The driveContinue reading “We came and man did we play”
So I’ve been busy again, yay! I guess, but yes been busy, writing and crafting new music. Something I have noticed I do is get over excited, I write a song and get in the studio then bang! I hear it and rush it out to the digital platforms. Maybe what I need to do is sit on this stuff longer and put records out.

But I feel like after recording such an emotionally charged record I needed to put things to bed and allow those feelings to disperse. I often wonder how songwriters who write about there own life allowContinue reading “It’s Quiet out here…”

A Message From An Angel gets its own life and a chance for it to breath itself into the world. It’s been a long time coming and many upsets and heartaches in the makingContinue reading “It’s Writing for writing sake”
So I hate hearing myself back, does anyone else? I mean it troubles me so much and I know I should be proud of my music no matter how good it is. I just struggle to find some peace and solace in my music. See I never wanted to sing, It’s not where I feelContinue reading “Listening party for one!”
Wow, lots and lots have changed! A life that’s good right? That’s what we all crave and try to work on as we go through this crazy world one step at a time. More than anything we simply want a peace, an inner peace that allows us to enjoy the world and the people we choose to keep in it.
