It’s been a hectic but very happy and productive time during lockdown and the cautious relaxation of restrictions particularly in the music industry. I have to say keep safe and take no unnecessary risks. That said quite a lot of news about Stories To Tell Album. Lots of radio plays and interviews. I released Sister Moon as a single in the Contemporary Christian Genre and amazingly went straight in at Number 1 as a Hot Shot Debut. Lovely people thank youRead more
Certainly no fooling anyone this month owing to the gravity of the situation we finding ourselves in. So many places in a sort of lockdown but relying on individual people showing a responsibility not to go out unless they really have to. It’s the only way to get this Pandemic under any sort of control so everyone out there please stay safe and please STAY HOME.
No live public gigs but people are using their ingenious ideas to relay their music to others, I’ve been using live Facebook broadcasts on a page called openmicsolate which has escalated to over 2500 followers and loads contribute with varying levels of talent and willingness to contribute, many for their debut singing/playing experience. I love it and have made contacts that I am confident will continue after this is all over.
Another Big Plus for me was to top the UK Country Pop Chart for the 4th consecutive week. Thanks for you and your support everyone xx
It’s been an eventful month or so. I had to cancel the Loch Lomond songwriting retreat due to the illness of a family member. However, my album has received great acclaim with radio plays on radio stations throughout the UK. I’ve been invited, after hearing my track A Pocketful of Smiles, to sing live in studio and interviewed on Radio Wimborne at the end of March. The pinnacle of the month has been my track, If I Could Turn Back Time reaches Number 1 in the UK Country Pop Chart here on n1m. Thanks for your collective support all of you.Read more

This is my first update and to keep you all informed about what’s going on in my musical world. I love playing my Faith Venus Trembesi 12 string guitar on most of the album I perform, but I have a beautiful 6 string totally acoustic guitar made by George Lowden in Northern Ireland, it’s tte signature model of my wonderfully creative and individually talented Pierre Bensusan, check him out on YouTube. The response to my debut solo album “The Dream Of A Dream” has been remarkable and humbling which gives me the drive to continue to perform and even to write and compose new songs for another album in 2020.
I’m off, with just that in mind at the beginning of March to the amazingly beautiful and romantic Loch Lomond where my wife Ally, and I, have a timeshare lodge that sits elevated up from the Southern shore of the Loch with The ever changing sight of Ben Lomond to the North I’m going with the intention of writing and composing as well as recharging my batteries for the projects line up when I return to beautiful County of Dorset at the end of the week. I have some exciting ideas looming and I will keep you informed when they start to materialise. I thank you for all your listenings to the tracks I have uploaded here and wish you health, wealth and happiness til the next time. God Bless You all.
