I should have known
This song pretty much wrote itself - I just sat at the piano and that was it .It features the wonderful guitar playing of Pete Mathison.
The Ballad of Jenny Mae
A song I wrote about a murder most horrid.
Another song I ve written featuring
Pete Mathison - guitar , Andy Leggett on Saxophone , Anth Caplen on bass
A song I wrote that started out as a bit of a rant called Lies , but the music felt upbeat and positive so rewrote the lyrics and here we are with Hooked .The amazing Pete Mathison on guitar .
A big part of my musical day involves playing at Carehomes throughout South Wales and when the pandemic hit all that work stopped .I decided to write a musical about how these care homes and all the lovely staff and residents were effected .This song is sung by the character of Death , but unlike the stereotypical image of Death being a 'baddy' I decided that this death would be a kind , benevolent , welcoming Death.
I ll Take a Bow
