    This is a landmark album for me as it is my first solo one. I've composed, arranged and performed all the tracks, and have faithfully reproduced in the studio the same arrangements I can live loop with pedals, and play on stage. Featuring 11 tracks, nearly an hour of music.

about

I wrote this song to celebrate my wonderful mum who died after a 14 year struggle with MND ( Motor Neuron Disease). Her courage and love of life despite gradually losing movement and speech, was a true inspiration to me and to all who knew her. This is a song for anyone who has lost someone dear.

lyrics

How shall I write a song for you
That’s big enough to let your spirit shine through
Like it did all those years when life changed so much
You couldn’t do what was dear to you.

And how shall I write a song for you
That’s strong enough to hold the courage you grew
With each movement lost you persevered
With serenity you faced your fears


And you smiled and smiled and you never gave up
You squeezed every drop out of the life you loved
And when I think of you I smile too
Cos you’re free of your body and you dance
And when I think of you I smile too
Cos now you’re free and you dance you dance


How shall I write a song for you
That shines as bright as the love from you
You touched the hearts of everyone you met
With that beautiful smile we will never forget


And you smiled and smiled and you never gave up
You squeezed every drop out of the life you loved
And when I think of you I smile too
Cos you’re free of your body and you dance
And when I think of you I smile too
Cos now you’re free and you dance you dance
You’re dancing
