Music. Firstly, the music I compose is an alternative fusion of post-rock ‘Dreampop’, with elements of jazz and funk. Here are some clips of the tracks from my forthcoming EP entitled “Midnight Sun”: –
Shade of Red ©
“Shade of Red” is a song inspired by my love of music, the colour red and a personal battle with depression.
It is about Music, Life, Love, and Being. This song was written and recorded at home between July 2014 and November 2016.
Credits, and with much love to: –
- Stuart Martin on Drums and percussion;
- Helen on Piano;
- Simon Edward on Bass (and other things).

Merry Go Crazy ©
Inspired by the Merry-go-round of life, which can drive us all to distraction: –
“When life becomes complicated ~ find joy in each other and the gift of laughter.”

“Rain” was inspired by the sound of wind chimes. I was at a very low point in late 2012. It’s difficult to put into words exactly what happened for me to be feeling the way I felt at this time. It was probably lots of things.
‘Rain’ was my way of doing something creative and positive to help draw a line under those feelings.

Breaking News ©
I wrote the lyrics to “Breaking News” whilst on holiday with my family in Spain. It is a song about 24-hour broadcast media and global events.
I recorded, mixed and mastered the song at home, which features licensed samples and loops: –
- ‘Chill Drum’ 65 BPM by firstname.lastname@example.org;
- ‘Time+Space Distribution’: Ambient skyline;
- Freesound.org and freemp3x.com (various newsreels).
Downtown Bleecker ©
I composed “Downtown Bleecker” after hearing the British Saxophonist Simon D’souza play on some of his own loops, which he kindly gave permission for me to use.
Sadly, I didn’t get to meet Simon, who passed away in May 2014. This composition is dedicated to him: –
I named this track after a journey I made to Bleecker Street subway station in New York City, March 2000.
