Coming Soon … Be Yourself in 11 Easy Lessons

Produced by Dave Sanderson

In January 2021 I started releasing songs from my upcoming album as advance singles (see track listing below). After finding support for a re-start of my career in May 2021, I paused the releases. They will resume in 2022.

The Making of the Album

After the release of my last album Not Afraid Of Greatness – Shakespeare’s Sonnets I started a most magnificent and fruitful songwriting collaboration with poet/lyricist Ian Badcoe from Sheffield who is not only a wonderful person to work with but has become a friend over the course of time.

In May 2018, with a total of 21 songs from that collaboration, I travelled to Ian’s home city to produce a new album with the fantastic producer Dave Sanderson (Reverend and the Makers, 65daysofstatic). Based on my demos we have recorded two magnificent drummers – Ben Fuller and Kris Tearson – on 5 songs each. We’ve added lots of ear candy and re-recorded the odd guitar and bass guitar. Along with the 2016 single To The Sky (one of the above-mentioned 21 songs by Ian and me) which Dave has brilliantly remixed that makes a total of 11 carefully selected songs!

I wrote some bits about my time in Sheffield on my blog!

The tracklisting will be:

  1. Walking To Alpha Centauri (released as single on 5 March 2021)
  2. Identity
  3. Anger Bob
  4. Methodology Of Love
  5. On End Times Boulevard (released as single on 22 Jan 2021)
  6. To The Sky (released in an older mix on 16 May 2016)

  8. Hey Changeling (released as single on 30 April 2021)
  9. The Rain In Certain Car Parks
