Played guitar and sang in groups and bands throughout the 60's - 80's, gigging most weekends. Took to songwriting when the working hours in my career as a theatre manager meant playing gigs was no longer possible. Now retired, I am heavily involved writing and producing at home.

Emma Jane from Scotland sang Love Is In The Things I Do. A duet with Julia Schmidt, We Can Be Lovers Again made the Country Traditional chart for 2 years. Performed the vocal on a track by fellow BJammer, Junior Murrell and have collaborated with CC Lamondt on several songs with her lyrics and my music.

It's a wonderful thing to be able to say that all my songs are now signed to Lamondt International and Ngong Hills Music Publishing, owned and managed by CC (Cat) Lamondt. Her empire has offices in the US and Africa and includes a record label and studio. As well as my own songs, we have collaborate on others and there is a real possibility some will be released either by Cat or other artists. Several doors are ajar and 2018 is beginning to look promising - very different from a year ago.

Thanks to those who gave me great, useful, feedback for the song Sarah Lost Her Life. Have spent some time re-assessing the song and trying to find a way to make it, at least, a little bit commercial.
I was never 100% about the title and knew that telling a tale about one person (Sarah) was going to limit any chance of the song being used anywhere, so have re-written certain parts to make it generic. It is now titled Lost Lives.
Have also added some more strings and tried to improve the dynamics. Hopefully, it's worked - please do let me know one way or the other.
Thanks all,

Have been away from Broadjam for a while with other projects going on, so nice to be back. Have just added a new song, Sarah Lost Her Life, a musical play about a daughter who, because of her mother's wretched situation, becomes trapped in the cycle of poverty, exploitation, abuse and prostitution. It's not particularly commercial and definitely not one to cheer you up but this style is new to me and I have enjoyed the process. I hope you will take a listen and feedback is always welcome - good and bad.
