‘The Unbearable Brightness of Seeing’ is comprised of 12 songs all written and recorded during the wind-strewn and snow-laden month of February 2018. It attempts to capture many moods of the time with themes of love, loss, the sea and the snow.
‘The Garden Studio’ was recorded in July 2018 and features an eclectic mix of songs from the reflective to the tongue-in-cheek.
In February 2019 he released an EP entitled ‘The Lights of Nowhere Town’ which features the the moving ‘England is Falling Apart’.
In May 2019 he released the album ‘Atomnesia’ and a the album ‘Amazing Graciousness’ was released on Breadknife Music in November 2019.
His most recent album, ‘Placenames’, was written and recorded in March 2020 during the pandemic lockdown and rightly features themes of isolation.
