ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ive been told my vocal style is eerily reminiscent of Al Stewart , (and a smidgen of Pet Shop Boy!) , but along with this , my new album combines pounding upbeat guitar fuelled Brit rock with piano ballads and some jazz grooves .
From the rocking opening track 'Little Black car' ,the album 'drives you ' through a series of pop rock, latino , jazz and melancholic ballad experiences ,all decorated with some of the narratives which inspired me to write .
I am keyboard man in a stand-out band, 'Strictly Dan', and I believe we are one of England's finest Steely Dan tribute acts, So the album reflects some Fagen/ Becker influence .

One of the highlightsin writing this album , was being asked by friends Caroline Ockwell and Graham Carter to write a song to accompany their highly original project on the Stratton Workhouse in Swindon . So i hope my musical tribute ,track 6 , 'The shadow of the workhouse ' does justice to their fantastic efforts

Compared with my previous work , I suppose the song structures have become more complex , the jazz influence is there , but there's some solid guitar work as in previous albums which i'm happy with. But despite the new directions in composition , the album is still authentically 'me!!' .

I can't thank Nick Beere enough for his production guidance, and Harini Narayan for the outstanding artwork on the cover. The Gods depicted by Harini are all 'real' in the sense that they were indeed revered by lost civilisations from Earth's past! and Harini's cornucopia of deities is a joy to behold. Finally the sublime sax work of Roger Burns (tracks 2 and 7 especially) and the silky backing vocals provided by Mary Rose Higgins and Kerrie Maginn make this a fantastic team effort of which I'm truly proud and which I hope you will really enjoy.

praise for Filled with Gods
Filled with Gods is a rich blend of poignant melodies. The journey through his latest album bargains with the toe tapping 'Little Black Car' . 'Bad News ' is a beautiful story which tells us that a doctor's lot is not a happy one and 'Fading Light is the saddest song, which hints at the dying embers of a precious love - grown men would struggle not be touched by the images conjured by this anthem. You just want him to take a seed of hope and run with it to God knows where. Shadows of the Workhouse is a nod to past ventures - also featured on the Alfred Williams album. Altogether a very enjoyable collection of songs.
