ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

LYRICS:
Dance with You:
I rang you just to say let’s go
But you weren't home your machine said so
You always run away
One day you'll find
The friend you thought you had
Was only in your mind

To dance, dance with you again
That's still my dream
To love you passionately in an underwater scene

Let's get out leave those magazines
Oh fashion overkill that's not your scene
Oh you're the queen of television, a muzak child
However hard I try, you make me pretty wild

Let's call it Romance
I can see you through a broken window
With a smile in your eye
Looks like you're quite content to be on your own

Let's call it romance we like it on our own

You might think that I don't care
Or even that I'm unaware
Maybe like those women that start
And leave you with a broken heart

OVERVIEW:
Music genres include - world, electronic, chill, ethno-ambient, dance, new wave, neo classical, synth-pop, reggae and rock.
Video themes tend towards surreal, colourful, textural, humorous, spiritual , political, nature & people .
I grew up in Melbourne Australia playing violin from age 7 to 19, including a year as leader of the Victorian Junior Symphony Orchestra and violinist in the Australian Youth Orchestra.
Then came a paradigm shift to improvisation, performing & composing on guitar, keyboards & sitar, creating songs, instrumentals & lyrics and also acting, writing & codirecting in live theatre groups.
In the early 1980's a stint in an original band was followed by a move to Sydney for 10 years and then to near Byron Bay continuing to combine a love for forest/bush regeneration with music & video, painting & local politics.
I have composed and produced six original music albums as well as soundtracks for documentaries, feature films, television & multimedia.
Thanks to those radio listeners who have described the music as “cool and clear, intertwining musical textures and rhythms, quirky and inventive , warm and inviting, exciting and intriguing”.
