I wrote my first song when I was 16. And it was awful!
At the same time though, I found it both enjoyable and rewarding to have just created something. It's been a hobby of mine ever since and thankfully the songs have improved over the years!
I know my modest limitations as a musician and a singer but the ever-improving availability of home recording technology makes the whole process of writing and recording a song so much fun.
In recent years, I've also enlisted the help of a couple of musician friends (Andrew Clegg and Esther Clare) who helped me record some of the songs on my latest 12 track album, Piece by Piece.
And I'm happy to share my songs with you here.
