about

In 2005 I wrote and recorded a CD every month for a year. A physical CD was sent to whoever wanted it. 10 years later I have finished recording a 12 track LP with folk collective Few Who Do. I'm planning on doing a monthly release of each track from the LP in addition to challenging myself to write 2 new acoustic tracks written each month.

Here are the 2 tracks I wrote in June and track 6 from the LP - Dreamers & Believers

1. Dreamers & Believers -This song was written as part of the original 2005 Calendar sessions. It's a tale of entering your late 20's and the struggle between dreaming and believing. A dream is not a dream until you believe it so hang onto it and it will bear fruit.

2. It's a Zoo- I've started compiling songs for a kids album. Kids albums always have songs about animals right? This will eventually also have kids making animal noises on it. Go to www.facebook.com/dadandkidmusic for more info on that!

3. Dreamstate - Once a dreamer always a dreamer. You can be put down, you can believe that luck is never on your side. At the end of the day it's better to float around in a dreamstate than to be beat down about life

Track Name: Dreamers & Believers
I look through my collection of tears, reflecting 27 years
Some of them were shining, some were way too frightening to disturb
Revealing in the way they moved
Revealing in the space they consumed
Revealing in the secrets they held
Revealing how I view myself

The race is on between the dreamers and believers
The race is on between dreaming and believing
The race is on between the dreamers and believers
The race is on between dreaming and believing
The dreamers almost gone

With a flicker of my eye I attempt to stop myself from crying
I gather all my shiny tears and take them to the shed at the bottom of my garden
Now the tears are running dry
And all the plans I nurtured are dying
There's a lack of fruition in there.
The vines are looking bare and scared

The race is on between the dreamers and believers
The race is on between dreaming and believing
A dream is just a dream until we believe it
A dream is just a dream until we believe it
The dreamers almost gone
Track Name: Samba Bamba
You can run run run run forever
You can hide hide hide hide from no one
You can dance dance dance dance dance in the fire
Just keep exploring until the end.

You can fight fight fight fight until you’re broken
You can try try try try to start again
You can rise rise rise rise rise to the challenge
Just keep exploring until the end.

You’re not all, you’re not all alone.
You’re not all, you’re not all alone.

You can lie lie lie lie until you’re found out
You can beat beat beat beat on the same old drum
You can love love love love love to the next life
Just keep exploring until the end.

You’re not all, you’re not all alone.
You’re not all, you’re not all alone.

You’re not all, you’re not all alone.
You’re not all, you’re not all alone.
Track Name: Look, Listen And Think About It
How can we concentrate when thing keeps going wrong
How can we concentrate when there’s so much going on

Are you looking at the instructions from beginning to end?
Are you looking at the paper when you’re holding a pen?
Are you looking at your teammate before you pass to them?
If you’re looking at me singing, go on, sing the chorus then

Are you listening to all the words that the teacher says?
Are you listening to you momma when it’s time for bed?
Are you listening to your friends if they say you’re bugging them?
If your listening to this song sing along to the end.

Look, listen and think about it
Look, listen and think about it
