The Poet in Me
The Poet in Me
‘Along The Way’, released in 2007, features many beautifully crafted songs – some truly outstanding…..the evocative chorus of ‘Whitby Harbour’, the resounding story line and sadness of ‘The Young Soldiers’ and “Forgotten Fields”, the stunning musical arrangement of the poignant Zimbabwean tale “Rolling River Farm”, [with magnificent musical score by Mike Silver]
The sensitivity of “Songs For The Lonely” and the moving sentiments of “Christmas Soldier”, “Michael And His Medals” and “Doors Ever Open”. Added to this mix are the upbeat rhythms of “Somewhere In America” and “Easy Street”.
This is a varied and thoughtful selection of songs from a writer who combines great vocals with sensitive and well crafted lyrics. Superbly supported by some outstanding musicians, this is an exceptional album by any standard.
