Album update

Thanks for all the kind comments on my Which Will music video  I am now applying the finishing touches to my debut album.

This record has been in the works for a while now and one of the main issues has been deciding which songs to include.

Of course the longer the process goes on, the more songs I write and the whole thing becomes even more of a nightmare! Thankfully I finally have a set that I am happy with.

I can’t wait to share these songs with you all.

Finally, big shout out to my good friend Liam Jordan who has given me a lot of guidance and encouragement with my music over the years. He has an amazing album out right now that you should all check out!

Stay tuned…

The Promise

I have performed Bruce Springsteen’s ‘The Promise’ a couple of times this week. For those who don’t know, it’s a magical song recorded during the Darkness sessions that never made it onto a studio album – shocker!!

Of course I’m a die-hard fan but I highly recommend giving it a listen. Lyrical perfection. It’s also the sequel to ‘Thunder Road’, need I say more?

I may record my own version someday, but here’s The Boss in action with my favourite rendition.

Back on the road

It’s great performing again! I have missed it. Looking forward to playing more…

New song featuring Judas Priest-style screams!

NEW MATERIAL!! Here’s a clip from a new song that I have written, ‘Lay Down The Law’. It’s not completely finished, but it’s notable for featuring some Judas Priest-inspired metal screaming. After singing along to a lot of Priest and Glenn Hughes in my car, I decided to have a go at some high octane notes myself! This is the result. Crank it up for the full metal meltdown effect.

The recording process of my first full-length solo album is AT LAST nearly complete. There are 12 songs and they’re all pretty varied musically. I’ve found it really hard to decide between continuing down the Waiting For The Call rock path (as I have with this song here) and sticking with the Way Home/Lemonade Sea acoustic style. Ultimately, I’ve elected to embrace both sides!

More clips and updates to follow shortly  I’ll share some soft stuff next to balance it out a bit.
