Stories and Songs in Bournemouth…

Loved playing in Bournemouth last weekend.

It was especially good to play with Stan Majerski on keys. We met in the Balkans and he produced and played on two albums that were developed out there: “Dreams of a Homecoming” and “This is for you”. We’ve also toured a lot together along with our larger five-price band.  In my opinion, the man is a genius – if you’ve heard his melodic solos and creative harmonies, I expect you agree!

 

Tapestry

Sharing an evening of “Stories and Songs”, we wanted to weave together music, conversation and visual art that point to the reality of the “God who is there”. The One who has come towards us in the person of Jesus to draw us into connection – relationship – with Him through His death and resurrection…

With one or two events most weeks until the end of March, I’ll keep you posted!

Here are some images taken on the evening by the gifted Bournemouth photographer, Loïc Salan…

Edinburgh

As promised, a few more images from 2015 so far…

Another highlight was playing in Edinburgh for the university events week. Here, my main role was to illustrate talks by Michael Green using the songs…

Live Music through 2015…

It’s been a busy few months playing in Edinburgh, London, Swansea, Sienna, Florence, Copenhagen…

As well as solo events, it has been great to work with friends like Michael Ots, Lindsay Brown, Michael Green who use these live songs as “illustrations” or “moments of reflection” during their talks to universities or other groups.

I’ll post a few shots over the next few days of some of these events!

Great Cafe culture in Copenhagen... ideal for these events!

Prague, Krakow…

It’s been a great week in the universities in Prague and Krakow. Working with Michael Ots and others from the FEUER network, we’ve been in some beautiful clubs in these two amazing cities – speaking and singing about the biggest themes…

Now looking forward to the Lavish Album Launch on 21st November with the whole band…

Recording “Acoustic Café ” Album at Porcupine

BLOG POST: 19th April 2013

“Today I spent a great morning at Porcupine Studios.

 

“It was to Porcupine that we brought the whole band to record the live jazz parts of “This is for you”. Nick Taylor has an amazing ability to capture live sound in an authentic way as he delves into his treasure trove of intricate and ancient Neumann microphones…

 

“Our philosophy for the session was, one voice, one guitar and one take – we were trying to capture the spontaneous, immediate feel of the Acoustic Café events and we had a lot of fun!”

This CD will be released in June. Here are some shots from around the studio taken by Mike MacDonald:

Heading to Durham

For the next two days I am playing at a number of events in Durham – part of the University ‘Events Week’.

It’s always excellent to be involved in these happenings – many opportunities to share through this music about the Jesus Christ who liberates lives…

My “acoustic” solo kit is loaded on the train – always quite an adventure to shift across the country. Here are some images from this morning!

Recording a new studio CD with Lester Barnes

It’s great to be working on a new CD with Lester Barnes! The plan is that it will be released in June 2013 – we will keep you posted…

Eleven newly written songs that echo with the theme of a transcendent love that reaches out…

Here’s a shot of Lester’s studio in W1.  With some of his Emmy-nominated portfolio bedecking the walls, it’s an inspiring place to work.
