I am currently completing a new album of self-penned material, entitled Waterloo sunrise, with the aim of releasing this on vinyl and online in 2022. The tracks include songs written as long ago as the early 1980s, through to brand new songs created during lockdown.

In the meantime, as an example of my catalogue, my earlier album ‘Birdcage’ featuring the following 11 self-penned originals, can be heard on Soundcloud.

Nicoll Road  3m 23s
Shame  3m 8s
You hurt no-one but yourself  4m 48s
All over you  4m 12s
Radio play  3m 8s
The golden age of this romance  3m 35s
Keeping a dream alive  3m 38s
Blind drunk and stupid Cupid  2m 28s
Colleen  4m 9s
Love is all I have to give  3m 38s
The day she said I will  3m 41s
