about

this is of course a construct, an experiment, a fake ;
until recently i’ve never thought of my songs having the
currency to be of any interest to others to hear other
than in passing. but over the past 15 months i’ve
discovered a growing confidence and awareness that
the songs can have meanings that leave my heart and
mind and my shoulders and can settle on and within others.

after being asked to play live on radio, i discovered that
the fear and excitement and reward of praise was quite
addictive and i started to look if my recorded songs could
be taken out of their homes and sit exposed in the beaming
headlights of my limited ability to mumble tunefully and
strum the guitar in performance.

i wondered how they would sound, and so created a fake
appearance of playing live. everything is recorded live and
in one take. mistakes covered up as if in performance.

this is that experiment complete with an imaginary audience

all i need now is a bit more bravado and courage and i
might get round to doing it for real

about

the dolphin post Norwich, UK

all the work of someone who really should know better but still can't stop, recorded late at night hence the hushed voices so as not to wake anyone.

instrumental agility is probably described best as 'enthusiasm over accuracy'

Thanks to my label and designers Jupiter's Moon
