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 at least 2 new acoustic tracks written each month.

Here are 3 tracks I wrote in July and track 7 from the LP - More Or Less

1. More or less - A song about getting a burning desire or artist vision that is inside you, out there. In the end it’s what you do now that defines you later… and it doesn’t always have to be perfect!

2. Free To Be Me - We all have a certain degree of ‘looking after number one’ inside us. It’s human nature’s way of making us original and is often frowned upon in today’s society.… This is a song about someone who looks after number one but doesn’t push it on other people. Naught wrong with that.

3. Lost In My Murmor of Memories - A look back on my youth when I was 17ish….

4. Wait To Download - Everything seems to come instantly at the touch of a button these days. This is simply a song about the enjoyment/anticipation of waiting and the thrill that can bring.

Track Name: More Or Less
Pour your heart into it,
You Break your back to prove it
What means more
Can mean less

Let the Ideas overwhelm you
In good time they'll become you
It's what you do
That defines you

You make your bed so lie in it
You sell yourself the promises
There's nothing more,
Nothing less

Live life through the mantra
That nothing else should matter
It's what you do
That defines you

More Or Less
Born Again

More Or Less
Track Name: Free To Be Me
Peak down from your cloud
I don’t know why, but you’re godlike now
Look down, look down, look down
Turn round you’re out ahead,
Sticking to the plan in your own head,
Turn round turn round turn round.

I wanna be a loner and owe nobody
I wanna be a loner with no apologies
I wanna be a loner and owe nobody
I wanna be a loner with no apologies

I just wanna be free…..
Free to be me…..
I don’t wanna owe nobody, not even an apology

I spy with my little eye,
Something bigger than the world outside
I spy I spy I spy
She said been there before,
Even though it’s hidden in my top draw,
She said, She Said, She Said

I wanna be a loner and owe nobody
I wanna be a loner with no apologies
I wanna be a loner and owe nobody
I wanna be a loner with no apologies

I just wanna be free…..
Free to be me…..
I don’t wanna owe nobody, not even an apology
Track Name: Lost In My Murmor Of Memories
I caught the 602 at a 8-10 and I headed up the stairs
With my walkman on, fast rewind so I can start all over again
Lost in my murmur of memories

Driving late at night through the country lanes in my mums Renault 5
With the radio on and the stars aligned, I’m John Peel Inspired
Lost in my murmur of memories

So I wrote some songs, started a band to impress some girl I met
Songs of changing smiles, dancing by the moonlight... so much innocence.
Lost in my murmur of memories
Track Name: Wait To Download
Crass is the rose when it awakes
Syphon away all my mistakes
Join the dots with my eyes
Fight the urge to deny.
I Jump over a hole just to survive.
Jump into the hole to feel alive
We all have something to hide.
We all have much more to find

As we wait to download
Some feelings are best left alive
Wait to download

There’s a time and a place to speak these words
Conversations over-heard.
So Lay down the line
Beyond your love-torn eyes
We all have someone to believe in
We’ve all heard something misleading
Double check... verify.
I don’t believe my own eyes

As we wait to download
Some feelings are best left alive
Wait to download

Look into your eyes
Dawning of the light

As we wait to download
Some feelings are best left alive
As we wait to download
