Not that I don't like words (and respect them), but music not only can amplify words, but can communicate without them.

There are stories to tell that can only be told through vibrations that reach deep within us.

I remember music as far back as I can remember anything. There was always music in the house.

My sister informed me that my first instrument was a kitchen percussion set- beating on pots and pans. But soon after I climbed up on the piano bench and started in earnest the journey into music.

My music is a form of outsider art (that can be used indoors). I like to make it accessible and create a direct link to the listener. I know there are jangly and unusual elements at times. I like a pinch of that.

Ultimately, and most important, I believe in my music and think that it's fundamentally well suited to a marriage with images. I hope that after listening to the music that you agree.

Hello Steve - thank you for the review of my 'Film Score Idea' track - it's really badly recorded and not mixed well as you rightly identify - I recorded it after realising my old Yamaha SY88 synth was about to die and I'd yet to put it down for posterity so I recorded it as was before the synth died - still a work in progress. Thanks again and good luck with your music!

Thanks so much Steve for the review of The Day That They Came - lyrically it's about what happened to the Jewish population in World War II. I had previously visited Birkenau and Auschwitz and this came as a result. Thanks for the critique.

I'm hoping you found the review useful. I did generally suspect that was the subject of the song (or a modern version of it). I wouldn't necessarily go crazy based on my opinion, but I think that understatement works best when the real world situation is unambiguously communicated to the audience and possibly some of the listeners who would connect most readily are aging out.

Best of luck to you and your work!

Hi Stephen, Thanks for a constructive and kind review of Caledonia. It does sound dated, I think I originally recorded it back in about 2012, but I leave it on my site "just in case"!! Thankfully, things have moved on since then!
Had a quick flick around your music, very intriguing and different. Good luck and thanks again.
Bob
