This song was inspired by the beautiful book of the same name by David Petersen and features acoustic guitar, bass, keyboards and drums. I’m very glad to learn that it has been soothing the journey of a few air travellers in the US 🙂

Not a bad place to wander down to when the storm subsides (it’s been very wild here lately)

Rehearsals and recording my album “Island of Anywhere” in 2011.  This guitar takes the lead on 2 of the tracks, “Sunset” and “San Francisco”

Winter Beach Colour…

After weeks of winter grey skies, the cold, sharp air brings some sun and colour to the shoreline

When The Snow Comes

We haven’t had any yet but I thought I’d share this photo from Mike Alexander of a darkly beautiful winter landscape in North Wales.  The song is one I wrote having been out in the kind of muffled, noiseless, late afternoon light that only a snowy landscape can offer.  It is one of my favourite compositions because it came out straight away, with no time to be influenced by anything other than the experience itself.

Oops….went a bit mad….
