Hello darlings,I guess one good thing to come out of this awful time of lockdown,is the attention we have been able to give to our pet projects.I have discovered a renewed interest in myself! Hahahah!
Having my brother Damian here for the last two months has been such a blessing.He's a software engineer and spends his days in front of a computer beavering away creating amazingly clever things.As a consequence,I have been doing the same, and learning how to use imovie.
I had a bit of footage in the bag from when my nephew came to stay in 2018 and I also added to it when I went to stay with Rory in N.C.
So you are looking at two different continents,but the same ocean which is a good metaphor for a loving releationship, n'est pas?

I have to admit that it was a huge learning curve and is very amateur in parts but also beautiful,after all,what could be more beautiful than our lovely planet?...speak soon...love to all xxxxxx

Here is my latest live performance recorded just two days ago.I hope you enjoy it and that I get to spend more time with you in the future.Much love as always xxxx

Hello darlings,here is a little video of some images of what life in lockdown has been like for people here in the South of England.We're still soldiering on ,wearing our masks and gloves,hopping off the pavement to let someone pass respectfully by.In the meantime the summer heat has been getting to people,the murderous actions of brutal people must never  diminish our true respect and love for our fellow human beings. We'll get through this xxx

Hello my darling fans! I just wanted to connect with you, I always leave it so long to reach out to you,but you know what? Life happens.

Right now we're in the weirdest time of our lives,locked away like frightened rabbits,trying our best to do the right thing but also hold on to some semblance of normality....it's not easy is it?
I find it hard to wear a mask when I go out,they look so peculiar but if it makes you feel safe and reassured,I'm certainly going to wear one.

Believe it or not,and some people don't given the job I do, but I'm a bit of an introvert so being alone has not bothered me too much and now luckily for me,my brother has joined me at my flat to spend the summer ,so I have someone to talk to.

I've been spending my time collecting together all the bits I need to compile my first songbook.It will essentially  be a book about my latest album'Over Dark Apples, containing the score and lyrics of all the songs,together with information about the recordings. I will also include stories about my life at the time I wrote the songs and what my life is like now.

It will be published on August 4th.

I have recently taken part in a cool app designed for Alexa,called 'The Handwash Jukebox'.Once you have created a link you just ask Alexa to open the Handwash Jukebox and it will play a 20 second piece of music or little song to amuse you while you wash your hands for the right amount of time.Here's an advert to show you how it's done

Here's a Picture of me in the 1980's

While I was looking for pictures for my first songbook,I found this old photo of me taken in the 1980's.Hand on heart, I'm not exactly sure when it was taken but I think it was 1982/3. I was a moody little thing in those days,a throwback to the punk rock era when no one was allowed to smile! I thought you might like to see it.
