    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.

    Stunning cover photograph capturing "a magnificent astronomical spectacle in the Pleiades as a moving cluster of stars encountered an isolated molecular cloud."

about

You know those aha moments when you're sat pondering in nature and suddenly you feel you have realised something you'd missed before?------

lyrics

Come fly with me on a silver cloud,
Come fly with me, everything’s allowed
Come fly with me & we’ll soar.

I was sitting in a cloud & the world stood still,
Time for thinking, for wondering, how stop running
Round in circles, what was i to do?
I was pondering this question
when the sun broke through
I was sitting on a rock that was jutting out to sea,
On a rock taking stock when the sea surrounded me
Gotta jump, make a move, it’s really sink or swim
Action starts to happen when you’re out there on a limb

You gotta take it where you find it
Life is priceless don’t you know
There’s no point in such a gift, waste it will go
No time for moaning & complaining
bad attitude and strife
Gotta reach for those stars, gotta live your life

I was walking in the rain watching holes in the water
What about my hopes & dreams
Not just things i ought to?
Ought to do, ought to be, ought to have, ought to know
There’s just no motivation in ought to overload
This world is full of colour, not dowdy shades of grey
Let colour be the backdrop of my every waking Daytime, playtime, every moment of my life
I was reaching this conclusion
When a rainbow lit the sky

I was standing on a mountain
When lightening lit the sky’s
The limit, life be in it, life’s a bitch & then you die
A little, cry a little, move on from the past
Re- create my landscape, going nowhere fast.
I’d been stumbling in the dark, trying not to fall
Through the cracks, watch my back
Expecting a brick wall of my own making
Tear it down
I opened my eyes and i could see all around
I opened my eyes and i could see all around
I opened my eyes

You gotta take it where you find it
Life is priceless don’t you know
There’s no point in such a gift, waste it will go
No time for moaning & complaining
bad attitude and strife
Gotta reach for those stars, gotta live your life

Reach for those stars
Reach for those stars
Reach for those stars
