Latest News

July has proven to be a good month, both for songwriting and for some (modest) recognition. This month I'm releasing "Only For Tonight" which features the vocals again of Cooper Moss and which was expertly mixed and mastered by (Sir) John Walradt! Out later this month will be another new track-"Disappearance" which is my foray into a more 'cinematic' sound. 

Was delighted to find out that "Presumably" has made it to the semi-final stage of the UK Songwriting Contest for 2022 as well as to the semi-final stage of the highly coveted "Unsigned Only" contest for 2022. It's always a real boost to find out that your songs are well-received from an external viewpoint.

Hi Robert, long time no hear!
This site is still not great for finding what you want!
Took me a while to see how to contact you after hearing your song!.

"No One Knows Me Better" is a nice number, nicely sung, which rolls along and conveys personal feelings!
Is this written with you and the good lady in mind? Sounds like it!
The Instrumental bridge came at the right time!
You have a fair number of songs now!
I usually look for the ones with least plays!
What one do you recommend I hear next?

I took advice from Jeana re: my latest song,"I See Her Dancing" and I am happy with the result.
I liked the Three verses which created specific Story detail but at six minutes, it was too long.
So cut, cut, cut later, I'm happy!
Hope all's well and enjoying your wee one's antiques!

Hey Jim,
Lovely to hear from you....how are you doing? How's life in the sunny south-west?!! All good up here except the wee one seriously limits the time to work on my music. I certainly have got better at time management and using every single moment I have to write music!
Thanks for taking the time to listen to "No One Knows Me Better"...it's a decent song and yes, was definitely written with Mrs Q in mind!
If you are looking for another one to listen to, I would point you towards either my newest track-"Love On Your Side" or the tear-jerker-"Presumably". Both very different!
I will definitely check out "I See Her Dancing". I'm so glad to hear that you and Jeana have linked up. She is a superb composer although her music is very different from mine and yours, but that's what makes it so interesting!
Right...I'll be checking this one out later. For now, it's breakfast!

Sorry, didn't mean to mislead you re Jeana!
I merely asked her opinion and we discussed honestly what was best for the song! Hence The Cutting and rearranging things!
There was no piano input; although it would have been really welcome and enhanced it!

Morning again Jim,
Just taken a listen to, "I See Her Dancing"....a very stylish and powerful track with Tim's vocals matching perfectly. It's a very enjoyable listen....I could see that on Strictly???? If only it were easy to send a track to the source that you know would work for it. For example, not sure if you've watched "Stranger Things" on Netflix. I have a track that I think would work perfectly for it but when doing my homework and discovered the Music Supervisor for the show, I went to their website and they don't accept unsolicited submissions although they do offer a 'service' for $399 where they'll listen to a track!
Anyway...nice work!

Love the new tune buddy, the Cooper kid does WELL, one thing I'd do (hell you know me, I have too say SOMETHING...) is brighten that snare, or is it a tom? Yeah, would give it a tad more "punch"...
Be proud, it's well done sir!

Evening sir,
Very astute indeed....it's probably the only thing that I was a little unsure of...I think it does need to be thrust further forward!
Thanks for the positive words and congrats again for the revisiting to Top of the Earth!!! Delighted for ya.
