    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

This is a song I wrote in a tiny, beautiful, hexagonal house on a wild Welsh clifftop. I have been having time out here for many years, and each time I visit, the memories flood back. It's one of my favourite spots on this earth.

lyrics

Can you see my footsteps walking this land
Years of my life traced in these sands
And can you hear the whisper of wind in the bay
So many yesterdays here in today

On the cliff the tiny house looks over the sea
Every stone and timber echoes memory
Children’s voices, lovers touch
The old oak door that creaked so much
Ship lights that wink out on the dark sea

I feel the breeze and I smell the ocean
I hear the waves and I taste the spray
I see the piper on the wing
Let go of my head and let my heart sing
I see the piper on the wing
Let go of my head and let my heart sing

Let me take your hand along the paths I love
Down the worn steps that lead to the cove
Around the headland to the inn in the bay
To my sunset cliff perch at the end of a day

Can you see my footsteps walking this land
Years of my life traced in these sands
And can you hear the whisper of wind in the bay
So many yesterdays here in today

I feel the breeze and I smell the ocean
I hear the waves and I taste the spray
I see the piper on the wing
Let go of my head and let my heart sing
I see the piper on the wing
Let go of my head and let my heart sing
Let go of my head and let my heart sing
