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 Few Who Do. I plan on doing a monthly release of each track in addition to 2 new acoustic tracks written especially each month. This is February.

Track Name: Not For Me
Not For Me

I believe that everybody has a talent inside
I believe in my ability to make you cry
Some do it because they have to
Some do it ''cause they can'
I believe that no body does it better than an Englishman

It's not for me, it's not for me to say
It's not for me, it's not for me to say
Hell, I don't owe anybody,
Hell, I don't owe anybody,
Hell, I don't owe anybody ,but me

I believe that anybody can stand the test of time
I believe in my ability to make you smile
Two wrongs can make a right... if opposites attract
So follow the law of the Few Who Do.... and hey, you'll be on track

It's not for me, it's not for me to say
It's not for me, it's not for me to say

Hell, I don't owe anybody,
Hell, I don't owe anybody,
Hell, I don't owe anybody ,but me

It's up to me, to say
It's up to me, to say
It's up to me, to say
It's up to me, to say
That's Right.
Track Name: Float Calm
Float Calm

Take mirror to your eyes,
Find a universe hidden deep inside.
It’s what you’re looking for,
What are you looking for?

Turn it down turn everything off
Turn to me as if nothing is lost.
It’s what you’re lov’in for,
What are you loving for?

Go with the ebb and flow,
Until it’s taught you everything it knows.
It’s what you’re dreaming for,
What are you dreaming for?

Learn to let go of yesterday,
Get up and start all over again.
It’s what you’re fighting for,
What are you fighting for?

There are light bulbs spinning through your mind
Watch as they explode your space and time.
You step through the door, back into the world
Step through the door, back into the world
Float downstream on a paper boat,
Far away from here....

When nothing goes right, take a left,
Don’t travel the way our fears expect.
It’s what you’re living for.
What are you living for?

You’re future begins right now,
Your next thought... it won’t let you down.
It’s what you’re waiting for,
What are you waiting for?

There are light bulbs flashing through your mind
Watch as they explode your space and time.
Step through the door, back into the world
Step through the door, back into the world
Float downstream on a paper boat,
Far away from here....
Float downstream on a paper boat,
Far away from here....
Track Name: Hit The Ground Running
Hit The Ground Running

Like a diving bell,
A holding cell,
Feeling caged In,
Feeling caged In,
Waiting so long,
For a chance to come,
To awaken me,
To awaken me.
I wanna hit the ground running

All the b-sides are gone,
No more sucking thumb,
Day light's raided,
Day light's raided.
Like pulling teeth,
Falling leaves,
Separated,
Seperated.
I wanna hit the ground running

The coronors out,
There's no beating about,
How it ended,
How it ended.
Out of Breathe,
Light Headedness,
Suffocating,
Unaided.
I hit the ground running I was running so fast,
I hit the ground running I was running so fast,
so fast, so fast, so fast, you couldn't see me,
so fast, so fast, so fast, you couldn't see me.
