you knew it anyway.....
Out on streaming and download channels now is 'You Knew it Anyway'. It's an emotional ballad, written with a friend when I was just 16 years old! But I've revisited it and completely changed the approach with some orchestration. It's been really well received by fellow songwriters and I hope you like it as well. Thanks to long-term school friend Ali Davis for the cover painting (that's me at 16) - just click on the picture for a listen.
2022 News so far.....
Hi Everyone. You may have seen in my Blog that the first half of 2022 has been taken up recording and releasing my new album Circles and Seasons. There are eight tracks which have been well received and also it gives me the opportunity to play some new material at live gigs as well! I'll be releasing a couple of the tracks as singles - the first one was Summer Days which reached quite a few playlists as we went through the scorching weather.
Having visited France about a month ago, I was reminded of a track I wrote there a few years back called 'Storyteller'. It seemed to go down especially well with the French crowds so I thought I would re-record it one the album was released. It was fun to do and I ended up with 7 instrumental tracks, 7 vocal tracks and 4 percussion tracks. It just kept growing and growing in the studio. I've released that on Spotify and other platforms such as Amazon and Youtube, and am very pleased to say that it achieved a Top Ten listing last week in the World Songwriting Awards. That's my seventh track to achieve this over the past couple of years, which is really great.
So, back to work now - I'm doing an online course on song administration for performing rights etc, so it's homework time! In the meantime, stay safe and keep enjoying the music.
2021 and all that!
Thanks for all the support in 2021, previous and hopefully beyond! The picture says it all - radio plays in the UK, Europe and N America, finalist awards, single releases, instrumentals and a rare cd Onward Journeys. It's been quite a year and I look forward to 2022!
