One of the biggest kicks I get is writing with other people. When it really comes together you end up with a song that none of you would have created on your own. It's a special feeling and a great thrill to be in the room when it happens.

Here are some friends I'm sure you'll enjoy discovering.

Co-writes with David Harris


David Harris released an excellent debut CD, August Moon, which I absolutely love. I've played it a lot and it gets better with every listen. You can imagine how thrilled I am to have co-written four of the tracks on his follow-up, The Usual Suspects
  
Stranger in town Listen on Dave's site
Black sandy bay Listen on Dave's site
Moscow rules Listen on Dave's site
What gets left behind Listen on Dave's site


But don't just listen to those, every song is a winner. Check out both his albums. (You can thank me later).

 

 

Co-writes with Tina Pluchino


Bristol seems to be where it's all happening! Try to catch a gig by the wonderful Tina Pluchino if you possibly can. 

As a taste of what you're missing, enjoy these live videos of three songs I was involved with.


 
Amsterdam

Co-writes with Joel Harper


Joel Harper has another fine album - Amsterdam - featuring some great songs and superb guitar from Gary Lee.

I love Joel's vocals on this track. 'On this night' is a song we created about a year ago. In fact, it was so effortless and enjoyable it seemed almost to create itself. Joel's polished it up and delivers a great performance. Click here to go to the song on Joel's Reverbnation page.


David Harris also has a fine version of 'Stranger in town' on his Usual Suspects CD. (Written by Joel Harper, David Harris, yours truly and Steve Jones). This is Joel's take, and I'm thrilled that there are now two versions of this song out in the world. Really interesting to compare the interpretations (and no possible way to choose a favourite, they're both so good). Click here to go to the song on Joel's Reverbnation page

Co-writes with David Fee


David Fee invades the dance scene! In a typically inventive way.
Cleaning out the shed started life as a three-way co-write between David, Gerri McManus and myself. I love the tempo changes here - but try this out on the dancefloor at your own risk.

The YouTube clip is a video montage of a song I co-wrote with David. Performed by David Fee's illusionary band, The Dodgy Hip, and celebrating the swimming accomplishments of Ellie Simmonds. The video was put together by studio 3dwalker.

Proceeds from iTune sales were donated to the British Paralympic Association.
