Falling apart
Rock : Folk Rock
Maybe it's my age or simply the company I keep, but I do seem to lose a little bit of me somewhere everyday these days, and once lost they are gone forever: I'm terminally depleting. The song has Beatle influences I suppose...

A child is gone
Acoustic : Acoustic General
The tragic story of a white middle-class couple and their abducted child caused a frenzy of media activity recently in the UK.

Big Girl
Rock : Folk Rock
I wrote the biggest part of this 30 years ago about a girl in the pub I frequented; I would have asked her out but I heard some guys making unkind remarks about her weight and I just didn't have the bottle after that. Shame on me, for she was lovely

Are you there?
Urban : Smooth R&B
With the advent of the internet and sites such as Soundclick and Myspace there are many more opportunities for us to 'meet' and 'get to know' people from all over the planet. In this new world we can be whatever we want to be... and so can they..

You make
Rock : Folk Rock
This song is about creation and inspiration. Apart from 2 acoustic guitar tracks, the music is totally sequenced in Reason with lots of percussion, fretless bass, guitars, piano, violins and cellos. There are 8 backing vocals and a single lead vocal.

Break these chains
Rock : Folk Rock
A song about breaking free from whatever it is that keeps us down; be it physical or mental subjugation, an addiction, a fear, an illness or disability, or simply a state of mind. It's in the style of a rock/Evangelical song.

Hope
Pop : Contemporary Christian
Hope is a song about finding your way when you thought there was no way through, or no route back. It could be about God but could equally relate to a woman, a man, an ambition: anything that gives you a reason to get up the next morning.

Sixty-second song
Rock : Folk Rock
It lasts a minute and says all I wanted to say. It's made of bass, piano, metronome, strings, vibes playing 'Westminster chimes', choir, synth and vocals; took me about 360 minutes to go full circle, from first thought to finished mix.

One Christmas
Pop : Pop Rock
This is not a Christmas song: it just uses Christmas as a reference point to show how time is passing. As I played a progression of seventh chords on the guitar, a couple of lines of lyrics came to mind and I took it from there.

Hammer and nail
Rock : Folk Rock
'Negative friendship', if there is such a thing, is the subject of this outpouring. It's essentially me and my guitar. I wanted to do something quick, something silly, but something musically, vocally and lyrically demanding...

Shallow water
Rock : Folk Rock
I saw the line from the chorus in a book of Zen wisdom I picked up on holiday. My computer broke down when I got back and so I had several weeks to form the song in my head...

Your sister's wedding
Pop : Pop General
An entirely fictional story woven around a very real, recent event. It's a song written as I drove home from a gig in late May 2005; and if it's of no other value, it at least helped keep me awake.

Waterfall
Rock : Folk Rock
Live bass and live vocals on this: piano, strings, flute, acoustic guitar, and percussion are all sequenced. I added the 'waterfall' intro-outro sound-effect as an afterthought.

Wake up God!
Rock : Folk Rock
I wrote this in December 2004 driving home from a gig, contemplating the state of the world, like you do, and I've just got round to finishing it off. The chords wrote themselves and the tune was just as I first heard it.

Lift
Pop : Pop General
A song about a lift (elevator). We can choose to get in or not but don't forget: what goes up must come down. The music is totally sequenced using Reason, with its great modules and powerful automation capabilities, plus lots of vocal harmonies.

Subway song
Rock : Folk Rock
A song sung live in a subway... you might care to stop, listen and throw a coin or two as you hurry by. I wrote and recorded the best part of this (acoustic guitar - capo 6th fret - and vocals) in 2 hours on 19th December 2006.

You would never believe
Rock : Folk Rock
Is it really 'better to have loved and lost...'? This song was inspired by the accompanying picture by Kurt Bujack (used by permission), a wonderfully talented artist and musician. See (and hear) more of his work at http://myspace.com/life9music

Mirror/Since you asked
Rock : Folk Rock
I've applied the fairy-story magic-mirror principle to a tale of modern love, turning two songs into one. 'Mirror', a folky ballad, tells the story of a relationship over a number of years; 'Since you asked' is the mirror's stark point of view.

This old shirt
Pop : Adult Contemporary
Sometimes an inanimate object takes on more importance than its face value would suggest. Even an old, threadbare T shirt might have bitter-sweet indispensible memories for its owner...

Sitting on the sofa with you
Pop : Pop Rock
If you ever had a friend that you fancied and you ended up at your place at the end of an evening out together, chatting, CDs playing, then this particular cup of coffee may taste familiar...

Keep the love in your eyes
Latin : Latin Jazz
This is a jazzy, latin-influenced love song - yet another one that came to me virtually intact while I was struggling with something else...

Perfect boy
Pop : Adult Contemporary
IAC Golden Kayak award for best song in its category - March 2007. For a songwriter, every cloud has a silver lining. Writing this has helped me; I hope it helps you equally to listen.

Cry for England
Rock : Folk Rock
The expression 'cry for England' has enough double-meaning to at least attempt a song about this once proud nation. There is barely a square inch of this globe that this old lady hasn't pillaged or nurtured, loved or hated.

Fridge says
Pop : Pop General
The song is about a real fridge but the idea came from: I downloaded a 'fridge door' to add to my Myspace page on which you can write messages with 'magnetic' letters - it took me a while to realise I was sharing this fridge with someone else.

In a dream
Pop : Pop General
Some jazzy/bluesy chords and a couple of lines of lyrics assaulted me, mid April 2006; I sequenced tremeloed Rhodes,acoustic bass, strings, some ethereal sounds; Rebecca's sax solo completes the backing track, with a single lead vocal on top.
