About Me

Bio

I once said to a sound engineer at a party (after too much wine) that "it's all about the lyrics for me. The music is a necessary evil!" Maybe a little bit of an exaggeration but my love of lyrics makes them first and foremost in my songs. I read leonard Cohen's biographya couple of years ago and was greatly comforted by the fact he was firstly a poet and secondly a musician. I am currently nearing completion of my third album, and believe it will be a great improvement on my first two albums "songs wot i wrote" and "wot more songs?".

I always know when I've struck gold with a lyric. I get a tear in my eye and lose my voice!

CV/History

I'm quite old, and have a lot of experiences to draw on

Key Dates

Hate performing. Someone else can do that, and if they do it using my songs that would be great. I'll keep the royalties and my privacy!
