ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 2013 I released 'Silver Muse', a compilation of songs spanning four decades in which I re-recorded some of my old favourites as well as more recent compositions. Those songs encompassed the myths, legends and the cycles of nature and featured some old colleagues and well as new friends.
I have often taken my inspiration from the mystic poets like W B Yeats and George Russell (A.E) as well as others long forgotten and so here for the first time on digital release are the original songs from my early albums compiled together. I hope these songs may act as a catalyst or inspiration for the listener and maybe the chance to dream.... I hope you will enjoy it.
