BUT OH, SHE’S SO FINE

COUNTRY / BLUES / FOLK / ROCK

I wrote this song from a man’s perspective and a bit tongue in cheek, realising that there were some similarities in the tempo & melody to sort of male version of Bobbie Gentry song.

MY NINJA GIRL

COUNTRY / BLUES / FOLK / ROCK

I wrote this song for a wonderful Japanese girlfriend (Michiko Kikufuji) whom I met in 2014. Unfortunately, and sadly Michiko succumbed to terminal cancer and passed away on the 4 June 2016. I travelled to Japan and stayed at Michiko’s flat from the 1st May – 1st July, looking after her until she passed. (This track seems to sound a lot better when played very loud!). Whilst out there I did concerts for her family up to 150 people and played at ‘Open Mics’ in a place called Jit Toku in Kyoto.

HAPPIER PLACE

COUNTRY / BLUES / FOLK / ROCK

This is a song about the lamentable world politics of War, where profit is king and the losers are the poor people of the world. The power brokers on the globe are the banks, politicians and religious leaders disingenuously spewing their cant whilst wringing their hands at the plight of war victims yet cynically profiting, and where hypocrisy is rife. The system is unfair and my hope might be naïve but everyone should try to make the world a nicer place to inhabit.

BROKEN PROMISES

COUNTRY / BLUES / FOLK / ROCK

Written about musicians who have all let me down badly! Case in point one character was so self-righteous, and full of himself but couldn’t be bothered to give support to my own ‘Open Mic’ events. And, YES I supported his ‘Open Mic’ double standards YUP you bet!
