New CD to be distributed by Move Records based in Melbourne

I am very excited to announce that the new recording, Fairy Tales, Monsters and Wild Animals will be released and distributed by Move Records, based in Melbourne.

Release date and Cd Launch concerts will be announced soon, watch this space!

Fairy Tales Monsters and Wild Animals has been a number of years in the making – it features an original composition In the Wild that was composed in 2013, and was recorded, edited and mastered over the last two years as I travelled across the USA, with thanks to my friends in Vermont, Wisconsin and Connecticut, all of whom played their part – as did my friends in Seattle, where I wrote In the Wild.  This recording is my most personal yet and truly represents a long and unexpected journey.

In the works…..

Many things are happening…..

 

  1. I am in the final stages of a new CD for release early next year
  2. New compositions for guitar duo, piano and string quartet are being prepared for publication
  3. I am almost ready for an announcement on where I will move to next to begin the next phase of my career!

I look forward to all these things…..
