Stream ‘Flight’ online

Here’s ‘Flight’, an instrumental from ‘The Way Home’ EP that shows a different side to my music. Inspired by guitarists such as Gordon Giltrap, Newton Faulkner and Don Ross, it incorporates dynamic folk fingerpicking styles and harmonics. The result is my attempt to represent the excitement and beauty of soaring through the air, enjoy!

New Video: For You My Friend

This is a live version of my song ‘For You My Friend’ that appeared on my debut EP ‘The Way Home’ (now available on iTunes). It’s track three on my EP and deals with the subject of friendship and the importance of those close to you in dark times. It’s also the first song where I played about with fingerpicking techniques, jazz chords and harmonics. Enjoy!

New Video: Still Life

Check out my brand new live video for ‘Still Life’. The song’s lyrics deal with seizing the day, following a similar theme to ‘The Other Side’. It is the closing song on ‘The Way Home’ EP.

New Video: The Other Side

This is a live version of my song ‘The Other Side’ that appeared on my debut EP ‘The Way Home’ (now available on iTunes). The lyrics deal with someone calling out to another who has locked themselves away in a state of self-doubt, hiding their potential from the world – a potential that they fail to recongise themselves. It’s quite an upbeat and catchy song, I hope you enjoy it!
