Hi I Have been writing songs since late 70s for my own interest, only now do I put them out there I suppose its about seeing enough of life to make them meaningful and hopefully inspiring. and having belief and confidence to go out there no matter what do not hide your light under a bushel. I have been very poetic in nature and always had a song in my heart hope you see that from what you experience when listening and availing yourslef of My compilations. I recently laid the six string down to go on a bit of a journey with the low whistle and then with a Harp guitar and together with a local Herefordian musician (John Perkins)went down in the cellar to compose some progressive stuff with almost a genre of its own but loosely under a celtic/acoustic folk sound looking to develop theme songs for films and videos.
