Thanks, Michael, nice to hear from you. I have just listened to some of your music too, and enjoyed it all.... particularly liked C breeze,

Hi Rob, C breeze is from my very early days, I was heading down the route of jazz/funk and blues but needs must, I need commercial tracks that get work so I've gone for a style I can make very convincing such as piano and light orchestration, luckily I enjoy playing any style.

Hi Rob - it's me again! Thanks for reviewing the edited instrumental version of "What About My Reward". My page has the full vocal version, as well as a re-mix done by Stuart Epps (Elton John, Led Zeppelin, George Harrison). Glad you like it and the story-song lyrics hopefully complete the picture. It's about a pseudo-Good Samaritan who only does good deeds for recognition and fortune.

Great, thanks, Bob. I'll have a listen. I enjoyed the instrumental a lot, so look forward to the vocal. Best wishes Rob

Wow, great stuff. I like both versions. The Stuart Epps remix is very spacious, and I love what he's done to the sustained guitar backing chords, but the original version certainly stands up in its own right. I love the lyrics and concept of the song, the three verse sequential structure, and the dead snappy refrain, really catchy and memorable. As someone else said, I could imagine that going down well in a big arena venue. What a great song. Thanks a lot.

Thank YOU and glad you enjoyed it! That entire song was created in 3 hours with only myself (vocals), a great studio drummer and an amazing guitarist who plays all guitar parts AND bass. We actually completed 4 songs in a single-day session so I'm pretty proud of it.
