For those of you who are new to my music, hello and thanks for listening, and everyone else, hello and thanks for hanging in there!


Well….. I have a whole bag bursting with new songs… a few are now being demo’d on Soundcloud or YouTube, but most, like ‘Misty on the Water(2)’, ‘Mother Earth’, ‘The Floods of Twenty Twelve’ and many more I am just gigging with at the moment… but they do seem to be going down very well.  So, hopefully it won’t be long before they are polished up and ready for you to hear.

Until then, I continue to write, continue to play, and continue to look to the future with enormous optimism and your support is invaluable in all of that.

So may I say a huge thanks to all those who have bought or downloaded ‘One Life’ and to all those who continue to seek out or rediscover my earlier albums ….. you simply make it all worthwhile
