Reboot: the musical ramblings of an older man

“I tried to leave you/I don’t deny/I closed the book on us/At least a hundred times.” – Leonard Cohen It’s been a long time since I posted here. Even longer since you heard anything but the promise of new music from me. I won’t bore you with all the reasons why music took a back […]

A taste of what is to come

It will take some time to finish but my next album will be called ARCANA. A simpler, more organic sound is what I’m after. This is not finished but will give you a taste. This features the superb talents of Ben Durfee on drums and Sam Bevan on bass. The rest is me. I’m hoping […]
