Hello there and welcome to my brand-spanking new website! I hope you will find it a lot clearer and easier to use than it’s previous incarnation and hopefully a little easier on the eye too! I decided to scrub-up a bit for the new look, the photos were taken by the wonderful Benjamin Borley and i chose my favourite old seaside theatre as the location; the Manor Pavilion in Sidmouth, did any of you guess??!

My new Special Commissions EP is now released to coincide with the launch of this new website and it is comprised of songs i have been asked to compose and record for various special projects which were all un-connected. People kept asking me for the individual songs and i didn’t know what to do with them until i had the brainwave of putting them all on an EP together as there wasn’t quite enough for an album but they all share a common thread of a sense of place and time. I hope you enjoy them as much as i enjoyed composing and recording them.

I have a busy summer coming up with several exciting projects on the bubble…   the Villages in Action ‘UNEARTH Year 2′ is now in full swing and the team are thoroughly enjoying getting stuck into the research for the this years four “villages” of Buckfastleigh, Chagford, Crediton and Brentor. More info on the shows will be added when the dates are confirmed so keep your eyes peeled!

Lastly the debut album by The Band of Love; ‘Folk Fever’ “folk reimaginings of 1970’s disco classics” is due for general release this coming September, there is a new teaser video of one of the tracks i lead ‘I Am What I Am’ available on YouTube (visit my MEDIA page) and Alice Jones’ ‘Put You Together Again’ is also available to download from iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify etc etc. Again keep a look out on my CONCERTS page for news of our very exciting debut live appearance, it’s a good ‘un!!!

Thanks for visiting and see you at a summer festival near you very soon!
