Hitman is getting radio play in the Netherlands after many plays here on N1M. Thanks to one and all for helping the song reach Number 1 in the Blues chart here in The Netherlands!

Happy New Year everyone!
Thank you all for making it such a great start to the year for me! The first song, "Hitman" from my EP "Connections" is at Number One in the Blues Charts and I am looking forward to creating a kind of film noir to accompany it. In the meantime, here is another song from the EP, "Never", which is a pop groove, with a kind of John Mayer meets George Michael feel. I hope you guys like it. Available to stream here and to download/stream on Spotify, iTunes and AppleMusic. Remember, Never say "Never", just sing it!

I have finished recording 4 new songs, to be released soon on a limited edition CD, with artwork by one of the most highly regarded international architects/interior designers in The Netherlands, Jochem Straatman. For Jochem, reducing his designs from entire buildings in China and airport lounges at Schipol Airport, Amsterdam, to the front and back of a CD cover is a new adventure. I can't wait to see it!
The 4 songs are very different from each other, but relate to other songs I have written and recorded in the last 40 years - yes, it's my Silver Anniversary as a recording and performing singer/songwriter/frontman! The first song and single, "Connections", is a calm and circular song (you can start and end the song with any of the lines, because they are all connected) with piano, acoustic guitar, violins and voice. It is out now on Spotify spotify:album:5G5pMZGh1OpKJwU1bQQEnz and iTunes (expired link) The artwork for this single is Celtic - Welsh - like me. I designed it with my bass/keyboard player and producer Lode de Roos. Guitar by Joep Berkenbosch, violins by Sabrina Scharm. They are all three great artists in their own right. "Connections" is released on Westcoast Productions. Enjoy!
The other 3 songs coming are a hard blues "Hitman", a rocky/funky song "Ghostwriter" and a funky/pop/dance number "Never". I'll keep you posted!
Thanks to one and all!

Good morning all from a stormy Amsterdam!
I am aware that the fires are burning in California and that Palestine has not taken too kindly to JDT's recognition of Jerusalem as only Israel's capital city, not to mention the plight of so many people on the planet and our own problems.
Nevertheless, I hope you won't mind my drawing your attention to my upcoming CONCERT/OPEN PODIUM in aid of (expired link) in aid of CASA JIMMY, a day-care centre in Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro, for street kids and pregnant teenagers. The aim is to raise enough money to pay towards major rapairs to the house itself, as well as something towards the services of a child psychologist. I sponsored a child for 4 years there and visited this summer. I restrung their classical guitars, bought them some food and drink for their party and watched their wonderful dance show before performing Stevie Wonder's Superstition on their playground using a strapless classical guitar I had just tuned. It was all very spontaneous and heartfelt but I HAD TO DO MORE! So, from 11;00 - 23:00 hours GMT +1 on SATURDAY 16 DECEMBER, we will try to RAISE THE ROOF FOR CASA JIMMY and carry on what the wonderful JIMMY PAGE of LED ZEPPELIN started in 1998.
If you cannot be there (!!) you can watch live on the hour from 13:00 GMT + 1 to 18:00 GMT +1 for five minutes. You can also donate online at (expired link) . Thank you!
THE NEW SONGS, HITMAN, GHOSTWRITER AND NEVER ARE IN THE MIX AND COMING SOON! Very best to you all for the festive and peaceful season, Gareth
