Perhaps I should have focussed solely on music (my passion) from the start. I did after all take classical piano lessions from age 5 through till I fell off a bicycle and broke my elbow when I was 13 years old. However, I ended up build a successful career in Accounting and Finance over 30 years with Deloitte and Touche while only managing to keeping one foot in the musical arena. Over the years, in my spare time, I managed to grab a few opportunities to write and produce music for companies that I worked for (never got paid for it though – my bad!) I also composed some songs for myself and others, some of which I had arranged and recorded in studios, but it was a hobby, and so I never actually attemped to have them published. (Also this was pre-internet and so easy self-publishing was not an option).
Having retired from my “day job” I now have the capacity to focus on my inherent passion for music.
The few songs I have recorded and sung myself (30 years ago) are finally presented on this website, but please bear with me – I am not presenting these to promote myself as a singer or performer. The songs should be considered primarily as demos of what I can do as a composer and songwriter.
I have now embraced the fact that that at the core, I have always desired to be a composer, lyricist and playwright.
So I have unpacked all my music tools and am lauching my late life music career with a vengence. I am incredibly enthusiastic about the possibilities.
The first major project is the completion of a Musical which I fully scripted 20 years ago. The concept album is currently in final recording stage, and should be ready for production, in April 2020.
Two further musicals are in the concept draft stage:
To reiterate: I would love to write music for you. I believe that all songs, whatever the genre, should tell a meaningful story.
