Lion 2013
I was born in 1964, according to Paul Simon "The year of the Beatles, the year of the Stones, a year after JFK". Well at least he was accurate. The first 8 years of my life were creatively a bit thin, but then a flurry of songs followed between 1974 and 1978, by which time I had written various classics which I still perform today. There was a lull in the early '80s before bouncing back in 1983 with a slower, darker and more political edge. Quick-fire satirical lyrics were a feature of the early '90s, with some darker material returning in the early '00s.

Today my songs are performed at Open Mikes in the Nottingham area, in particular the Lion at Basford (whose blackboard I have plundered for this site's navigation), and the the Jam Cafe in Hockley. Latest songs include You can't kill the song and Going Home in 2015. Watch this space for 2016!
