MUSIC

Music is a huge passion of mine and has been for many many years. I was brought up listening to The Beach Boys and Otis Redding, as well as Rock'n'Roll and Soul Music. 

As a kid I wanted to sing. As a young teen I was in a Sex Pistol tribute band as Johnny Rotten! Now, I prefer the acoustic over the safety pins but I still love a wide range of styles and genres.

Here you'll find some songs, and some lyrics, and the occasional thought about other songs too. It is unlikely that any song or video I post will be professionally or even properly recorded (probably just from my phone!) so until the day I do, this is enough. Enjoy! 

Heart of a Bear (live)

Before this particular evening in India, I had only ever performed my own songs in front of one or two people. It was a wonderful opportunity that came up here and I was in a good place mentally, so I did it. Sound quality is not great as it was recorded from a distance, on a phone, but the intent is hopefully clear. 

Heart of a Bear (lyrics)

With the courage of a wolf, and the heart of a bear, with the eyes of an eagle, soaring through the air.

You can love, you can see, you can fight for what you believe.

You will love, you will see, with open wings you will receive.

With the courage of a wolf, and the heart of a bear, with the eyes of an eagle, soaring through the air.

You can love, you can see, you can fight for what you believe.

You will love, you will see, with open arms you will receive.

So breathe and see, fly and believe, open, receive love, love, love
