The Poet In Me

I have just finished recording my new album, “The Poet In Me”. I’m delighted with the early mixes, 12 new tracks recorded and produced by Angus Lyon at Gran’s Studio in Bigger on the banks of the River Clyde. This time round I have a much smaller team, they have been superb, with Angus himself on Keyboards, and Accordion, Anna Massie on Guitar, Fiddle and Banjo and Stevie Lawrence on Mandocello, Bass, Percussion and Small Pipes. It’s going too be difficult to better my last album “Fragile” but I have high hopes, listen out for Anna singing a song I wrote last year, “Captain Oh My Captain” and the title track which was inspired by York Poet Don Walls. Don’t worry there are 10 more good tracks to keep you listening. I hope to have the album ready for release in early September. If you’re interested in an advanced copy please send me your address and I will keep you informed as to when it’s ready.
