I will hold my hand up now and confess to some kind of phobia when it comes to ‘industry’ worship leaders. Rightly of wrongly I don’t usually give them the time some of them probably deserve. I […]

A Song Writing Lesson

I’m sat here listening to Keith Green. I used to listen to Keith Green all the time, I knew the words to every song and I’d play the tapes in my truck all day as I made my deliveries to health food shops around the country. Listening takes me back to those pre-CD days where […]

A Toe In The Folk Club Door

I think it was Billy Bragg who once said he had a toe in the Folk Club door. I remember sitting in my bedsit as a teenager listening to “Life’s a Riot with Spy vs Spy” thinking it must be cool to be a one man clash, to be able to hold an audience just […]

Happy New Life!

I’ve been asking a lot of questions lately. Simple questions, like, “Why am I here?”, “Where am I heading?” and the best one, “Is what I do actually making a difference? Anyone? Anywhere?” It’s probably a mid-life crisis, again, this time bought on by my decision to go full time music-making. 2017 was a crazy year. […]

The Heroes Tour

Just got back from a great trip to Scotland with Adrian and Bridget Plass and David rinse from Searchlight Theatre. We had some brilliant shows and some amazing local heroes who braved the microphone and Adrians grilling! We are surrounded by amazing unsung heroes, you know. It’s wonderful. It was a long trip, 1500 miles […]

Why Should We Care

I often say that the one thing that changed my life, ‘converted me’ if you like, was people being Jesus to me rather than any preaching or teaching. If there was a song that really got me it was “Something To Believe In” by the Ramones. No hymns or choruses or well intentioned gospel story […]
