Hello friends… I’ve been busy working on some new music - my first in 3 years. For three days in October, I headed to a studio on the south coast with producers Dan and Matt Weeks and we recorded some Christmas songs. I think you’re gonna like them.
A couple of tracks are recordings of songs I wrote last year for Christmas, and are a lighthearted reflections on the Christmas season. They discuss the ineffectiveness of men when it comes to organising Christmas, and the relative merits of the Bounty and the Snickers in Celebrations.
Then I wrote two songs for the festive season with a little more reflection on the mystery of the incarnation, reflecting on the words to old carols, and the Christmas story itself.
We finished the project off with our take on “Joy to the World”. These songs took shape as I sat at the piano for a change, and I’m really excited by how they sound.
I also have a number of concerts in November and December and I’m looking forward to sharing the new songs then, as well as some old and festive favourites.
