An award winning published poet living in the mountains of the Lake District with a lyrically evocative style, who has been encouraged by numerous musicians and others to venture into the world of professional lyric writing.I have won the National Poetry Competition twice. Am inspired by a great many influences artistic, natural, spiritual, metaphysical and musical. For me lyrics need to be memorable & catchy but at the same time contain naked truth and something that sends a tingle down the spine on the first reading. I see the ideal musical genre application or interpretation for my lyrics being Indie,pop and rock. I am open though to musical suggestion interpretation and or collaboration. My favorite lyricists are Leonard Cohen and Morrissey. So many musical artists inspire me to write lyrics but it is the Indie genre predominantly followed by Pop/Rock Reggae that ignite the creative juices the most.
