Just a quick upload, since whilst we all have been isolated, including us musicians, this was only created in the last week or so, it took longer to get iTunes and Amazon to release it, than for us to create it!
The song is called Don't Fall - it has got a message in the lyrics - hopefully, something less saccharine than just keep safe - but please, please still do that - most importantly don't let this make you fall.

This song was written before the current crisis, it had been delayed due to my drummer (who lives in Nashville) being caught up in the recent hurricane/typhoon issues in the USA, and being unable to complete it until last week,
It’s been problematic getting finished music out, since our singer is based in Dublin Ireland, bass player in Barcelona, Spain, and I am in Salisbury in the UK, all of us trying to maintain livelihood for financial reasons, whilst also keeping safe.
Whilst this music is free to listen to, it’s difficult to continue creation without a small return since we use the internet to send files back and forth.
Anyway for your ears; A Song of Hope.
Keep safe, and enjoy…
I hope to complete something else for release next week, so keep your ears peeled…

Things in my personal life have been a little less hectic of late, though ongoing, its become less 24/7, so it's given me time to actually sit down and write this.
I have had requests from a few of you good people to release a best of or compilation album, initially, I thought - but I have only released one CD... but in actuality, I have created a lot more (it's a big number)... so I thought, yes it would be a good idea to get them all in one place... well the good ones... (but then I cant define which are good, I mean they are all good arent they?)... So here is a quick list of tunes... some of which you may not have heard... (but that's the point.. to get them heard!):
Angels, Demons & Souls, Dark City, The Neverending, Bring On The Calvary, Top Of The World, The Hidden Temple. Moth To The Flame, Welcome To The Madhouse, Cowboy Song, Moving Forward... plus other tracks, and one or two new tracks...
Now my main problem for this compilation is 'What should I call It?' - I don't want simply 'The Best Of..." because three years down the line I might have improved (hopefully).... so...
Attached is the intended artwork - its a visual representation of the songs with some hints to what's on the album, can anyone of you guys come up with a suitable title for the album..? No prize, but the knowledge that the album will have your title printed on it... and it will be made available via iTunes, Amazon Music, Spotify, Deezer, and many other places...
Currently, I am having to listen to the remastered versions of the songs, which sound better, certain songs have been audibly cleaned up, and some have been given extra mid and sides (it's probably due to the food over Christmas), so they sound the same but oddly better...
Anyway, signing off for now.... Don't forget to send me your title for the compilation...
Apologies if I haven’t put any new material out for people to listen to, sadly my father had recently been taken into care due to his ongoing dementia, I have thus put music on a short hiatus until he is in full time care.
I had been recording some new material prior to this happening, so whilst there is material, I am not currently in the correct frame of mind to give them the due attention they deserve, whilst maintaining the quality I want for there release.
So if you can please bear with me, in the early part of the year I shall hopefully be in the right place to get some new music out there for you guys to listen to, and probably release a compilation which will include, Dark City, Bring On The Family, and a song written for my mum who passed away a few years ago, called The Mountain Road...
Thanks for being a fan.
Just thought I would let everyone know, next week for the 1st October, I will be hitting the studio with some new material.
I always go with the 'See what happens approach", so can't really say what the new material is going to be like, because some of them haven't been composed yet!
I will, of course, post up tracks which we finish mixing, fixing, mastering and blasting for you all to hear as soon as possible...
Meanwhile, I will be replacing one of the songs from my N1M playlist - which was 'TakenOut" and might otherwise never be heard.
