- Fun in the Rum - The Caribbean Project
'Fortune favours the brave' ~ Virgil
RECORDING A FOUR TRACK EP IN ANGUILLA IN FEBRUARY 2014.
I am lucky and crazy enough to have been presented with an opportunity to record my third album in Anguilla, a remote island in the Caribbean.
I am certain this is one adventure that will produce some extraordinary sounds. There is a strong sense of Buena Vista Social Club meets Arabian blues riffs over reggae beats & Spanish progressions with local Anguillian guest appearances and all polished off with Ashfield spunk.
It is with immense pleasure and pride that I can announce I will be teaming up with award winning producer Syd Green on this album.
If you happen to like me and/or if you like my music, and would like to contribute to the recording by throwing some cold hard cash my way - well you can!
(The airfares to paradise are killer, but I hear the rum is cheap.)
Please press the DONATE button and give what you can.
If you donate $10 I will consider you tops and amazing all in one. If you pop in $25 I will send you my recent CD as thanks and if you donate $45 or more I will put your name on the new CD's artwork as a credit and special thanks.
So... Here I go. Travelling to a world, a world away, to make world music, my way.
Every month I will post a little vid and/or picture to show you how my preparation is going and to reveal more details about the project. So please stay in touch and share the journey. Thankyou x

- Knock Knock...
Im paranoid enough wading through the conversations, swapping gold for ciggarettes, fantasising about lush locations.
Hey. Im back from a wintery slumber. Asleep for too long in a steampunk scene, littered with neverending dreams and unreasonable mirrors. Ive lost friends, buried fathers, lost brothers, dealt with dramas. Its been 4 years of survival, reinvention, revival. I am feeling meek and sharp. I am ready to chop and laugh.
Hey. Im back. Where've you been? Or are we meeting for the first time?..
Im starting from scratch here. No record label's or fair weather's. Just me and the music I have made.
It is a gift for me. It is a gift for you.
It's Rock n Roll. It's big heart and bruised soul.
It is personal. So stay in touch.
If you like what you hear, then dont wait for the train. Buy a copy of my album and shoot right through.
