about

I love the atmosphere of a live show and have always struggled to capture it, so early in 2014 I recorded two live shows.

The first was a superb gig at The Lamb in Devizes, which is a brilliantly intimate and did exactly what I wanted, it perfectly captured what my live shows are all about, entertainment, involvement and making people happy. Seven songs are taken from this gig and they make up Disc Two of the album (Listed as bonus tracks on the download version.)

The second gig was at The Village Pump, Trowbridge. If you’ve never been to this venue, you won’t be able to grasp just what a special place it is. Music just sings out from the wall, and helps every performer be the best they can be. I had an extremely lovely, and quietly appreciative audience, which has leant itself perfectly to me taking the recordings away and adding to them in the studio. I have kept the live vocal and guitar track, and added additional instruments/back vocals etc. The eleven songs on Disc One of the album come from this gig.

Track Name: This Picture's Incomplete
Take a picture, a snapshot in time. Over the years the picture stays the same. But you and I moved on to different things and you never knew. You never knew my feelings. You never knew my feelings for you. Take a picture of another time and place. Wake up to begin another day where you and I, we walk this path alone. And we never know just where the road will go. Pictures in my mind go on and on. The memories I've filed away for so long. One by one they gather dust so thick that you can't see I'm kneeling at your feet. This picture's incomplete. Over and over I see you in my mind. And now I wonder if it's time to leave the page. I'm terrified of opening my heart, of being known and being cast aside. Pictures in my mind go on and on. The memories I've filed away for so long. One by one they gather dust so thick that you can't see I'm kneeling at your feet. This picture's incomplete.
Track Name: Different Colours
Time takes it's toll and it's all you can do now to rewind. Now you see different colours flickering. They fade in and out and it's hard to see them. So hard to see them. Different colours flickering. They fade in and out and it's hard to see them. And it's been a long time. I know it's hard for you. But don't you worry about me, I'm in the right place. I don't want to save you, I just want to be there when you find a strong road. I know you will. The hills on which you climb are getting steeper because you're reaching the peak. Now you see everything panning out on the horizon. You take it all in. Everything is panning out and the way things are, you can take it all in. And it's been a long time. I know it's hard for you. But don't you worry about me, I'm in the right place. I don't want to save you, I just want to be there when you find a strong road. I know you will.
Track Name: Awake
I lie in my bed, my head full of thoughts. Thoughts of nothing special. The day that has gone, the days yet to come become one in my head. A buzz in my brain that I just can't explain keeps me awake. And still how hard I try, there's something inside that keeps me awake. My eyes long to close, but something inside just won't let me rest. This turmoil that I just cannot bear, it ruins my night. A buzz in my brain that I just can't explain keeps me awake. And still how hard I try, there's something inside that keeps me awake.
Track Name: All I'll Ever Know
Digging deep in to my soul, 'cos it's all I'll ever know, yes it's all I'll ever know. And I never understood, things don't pan out like they should, they don't pan out like they should. But I'm taking time to leave behind all the trouble. Taking time to leave behind all the worries. Taking time to leave behind all the things that seem like you. I'm sitting on this shelf looking down upon myself, looking down upon myself. If only I could see a little wood between the trees, a little wood between the trees. But I'm taking time to leave behind all the trouble. Taking time to leave behind all the worries. Taking time to leave behind all the things that seem like you. Blinded by my hopes and wishes, I drift away from you. Blinded by my hopes and wishes I neglect to see the truth. Oh, I'm afraid it's all I'll ever know. If only I could see a way to break free. But I'm taking time to leave behind all the trouble. Taking time to leave behind all the worries. Taking time to leave behind all the trouble. Taking time to leave behind all the worries. Taking time to leave behind all the things that seem like you
