I had humble beginnings. Born in Germiston, South Africa and presented with incredible opportunities throughout my life. So, I have been able to do most things I ever desired. I have travelled extensively, had lots of international work opportunities, lived in a number of countries and managed to keep a passion for music alive while pursuing a corporate business career.
Any song on this site that I have personally sung was primarily intended for demo purposes. All songs sung by other studio artists are examples of what I can do for those who wish to engage me to compose music for them.
Everyone has permission to download any song that is featured on this website (The only exception to the download permissions above is that selected songs that I have written for Corporations which are not downloadable).
For songs anyone wishes to download, I ask only that you make a small donation of your own choosing (with a minimum of US $1.00) for any song you download. (We request this only to allow us to track the downloads on a systematic basis). When you click on the link for a song, the Bandcamp download website will handle the transaction.
Everyone also have permission to cover any song if you wish, however should you make money off the song commercially I will expect to receive normal songwriter royalties.
These songs are demos presented as examples of secular music I can write for you. My focus has traditionally been genres that tell stories – e.g. Country Rock, Classic Rock and Ballads .
Corporate songs are always designed to deliver significant “messages”.They are usually driven by a brief developed by a project sponsor. In the case of the examples here, I was personally involved in the companies, so I wrote the briefs myself.
To date I have tended to focus on the quieter more serious side of the music in this spectrum. Three example songs – Through Heavens Door, My God Hears Every Word, and Forgiven are all on hold as I look for singers. Let me know if you are interested.
On the schedule over the next two years are the concept albums for three musicals. “ASCENSION – THE MUSiCAL” should be packaged for production and performance by mid 2020. This will be followed by “ACTS” as well as “CRY BELOVED COUNTRY”, both of which are targeted for launch by the end of 2021.
