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. Most recently collaborated with Susan Odella on her wonderful song Falling Away.

After many years of submitting songs to individual recording artists, online opportunities and having songs on various online platforms, I am very pleased to say that a song I co-wrote with my publisher and Broadjam member, Cat Lamondt, has been globally released by Claudine Nelson, the winner of Voice Of Namibia 2018.
The song is Between The Earth And The Stars and Cat wrote the lyrics especially for Claudine and asked me to compose the music. The song is available on CDBaby

Just uploaded Blue 3, my first song since starting to use a guitar amp sim in place of a physical amplifier. Pleased with the sound but a few tweaks yet required. This was first recorded in 2012 so was overdue a new arrangement.

Thanks so much, Bob, for your outstanding review of my song: 33. Sweetness & Tragedy. Your questioning of the lyrical intent/message is entirely understandable. In this song the singer has fallen in love with a woman suffering from bi-polar disorder. Sometimes she's just as sweet as the summer rain, and then on the turn of a dime, she can suddenly be acting atrociously, spitting in his face and behaving like the devil. Therein lies the Sweetness and Tragedy in striking contrast. best, jay

It is very frustrating to find that - for no apparent reason - the guitar sounds you have relied on for years have somehow magically changed, and not for the better. It has taken me a long time to get everything back the way I wanted it. There are too many options and switches on the modern guitar amp - it used to be easy!! Anyway, that's the final version of When You Might Need Me done and dusted, I'm moving on now!!
