Instrumentalist ~ Mystical balladeer
Welcome! You will find 20 albums of my spiritual music here from my very latest
release Heal Your
in 2014, going right back to 1987 and my debut album Open Secret.
You can listen, read, buy and download, as well as view YouTubes and
galleries, and catch up on any latest news like forthcoming concerts or
new projects. Mostly I write and sing love songs that connect us to the
sacredness of our being, but I also sing some well-loved traditional
songs, and a few spiritual re-interpretations of tracks by some of the
great minstrels of our time, like Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan. Earlier
in my career I recorded some instrumental pieces and piano vignettes,
too. My genre is principally singer-songwriter, folk-rock and world
music, with a dash of ambient new-age and a pinch of classical. The
vibration of my music is intimate, tender and loving, and I sing to
heal, to open the heart and to build a bridge to the higher self.
"Your music has a
sacred, healing quality that
speaks directly to my soul.
reminds me of something
precious, almost forgotten.
It speaks to me of an
eternal peace beyond all

"You have a great gift
for expressing the deepest language and longing of the soul."

"I have attended many of
your concerts, and I find that every
performance of yours is
as I watch you unfold over time. Each time I see and feel that you
with the music something mysterious happens to me. It's as if I'm
of radiance which is being reflected as you become one with the music.
bestowed upon you is then released. When you sing, Divine love and
you sing for love."
26/05/14 ~ New albums!!
Sometime quite soon I intend to start work on two new albums!
The first will be Songs of Love and Chains volume 3... probably 17 or 18 songs I cover by other artists, re-interpreting them spiritually in delivery and ambience. I did this with a double album in 2008, Songs of Love and Chains volumes 1 & 2, and people really seemed to resonate with it. I made it sound like I sang in a cathedral! Now I'd like to add another collection. These are songs I cherished and loved growing up, and which touched my heart... 'Scarborough fair', Dylan's 'Don't think twice', Leonard Cohen's 'Bird on the wire', 'What a wonderful world', Donovan's 'Colours', Sting's 'Fields of gold', 'In the bleak mid-winter', Bob Marley's 'Stir it up', Georges Moustaki's 'Natalia' and many more. I'd hope it might be finished mid-autumn.
Then, probably in 2015, I have a new set of higher love songs I'm writing which I'd like to record. I have already written 'The lightning seed', 'Spiritual love', and 'Finding God with you'. The first two I recently sang live in concert in Holland.
I know I keep saying I would like to record a piano album, called White Temple... and I do really want to do this! I just need to find enough hours in the day and enough funding to keep composing, recording, making YouTubes and giving concerts! I also have in mind an album of channeled spiritual communion, but I'm eager to go with the first two, for now!
There's a new gallery of mostly recent concert photos just added under 'Galleries' !
