I forge songs in a furnace and temper them with icy lyrics. It’s grungy, raw and honest. It’s music from the edge. I am a songsmith creating music for outsiders, songs for the brave. It’s what I call Fringe Rock.

*I’m not a fan of ReverbNation and I rarely update it with new music as I don’t believe it represents value for money (not least you can’t upload anything larger than 8mb without a pro account). If enough people actively engage with me on that platform I might reconsider my stance on the platform.

LATEST RELEASE: Swan Song (Radio Edit)

Towards the end of the year 2000, I was in a pretty low place. I was fresh out of 6th form and working double shifts as a bar and restaurant manager. On top of feeling that I had no direction in life, I was in the middle of breaking up with my first love.

The music and lyrics have barely changed since then, just a few tweaks here and there. For me, this song is very much like looking back in time to my 18-year-old self. It’s sometimes difficult to look back at the person you was in the past but it’s also good to see how much you’ve grown.

For those reasons I really struggled with the thought of releasing this track but it’s one of the best songs I wrote during that era and I really wanted to just get it out there in the world.
