Dye Pigment #2 Shine So Bright
This is the studio version of my song Mercy Mercy My featuring the great fiddle playing of the very wonderful Grenville Horner. This song is available on all the major download and streaming sites.
In full rehearsal mode for the Sound Lounge Fundraiser at Christ Church Colliers Wood 28th June. This impromptu vid feature my new guitar a lovely Atkin Forty Seven. A joy to play and behold.
This video was made for my friend Hannah White. Hannah can be seen here singing after hours at the famous Sound Lounge Tooting. I managed to capture the unannounced performance on my mobile phone and squirreled the footage away. The plaintive vocal the heartfelt lyrics all demanded to be shared and so I married up the footage with ‘lost and found’ 1960’s super 8. The resulting collage providing a tender and haunting refection point for Hannah’s lyric and performance. So pleased to have had my mobile at hand and so pleased to call Hannah my friend.
Words I wrote while sitting with my Dad in the days before he passed away. It was a time when emotions and senses were tuned acutely high. Years have passed but the emotions and the feeling still run high.
Many years ago, back in 99 to be precise, when I was teaching myself guitar my wife and I wrote a song and made a video. I sang this song last Saturday down theSound Lounge and it received a most positive reception so here’s the video. Enjoy and please accept apologies for the poor quality but thats where we were back in the day!
