P.A.W.S. Benefit Concert

Many of you may be labouring under the misapprehension that P.A.W.S. is the name of an animal charity, but I can assure you all that this is not the case…well, it might, be, but not to this particular singer/bassist. It stands for “Plays Again With Stef”. Because 2 weeks ago, I climbed onstage with my old buddy Stef Cybichowski and we played live together for the first time in 33 years, no rehearsals, nothing. (Unless you count the 2 hours on the plane where Stef was listening to the songs on his ipod!)

I don’t gig locally very often , but the opportunity afforded by this Charity bash coinciding with Stef’s weekend visit was too good to pass up. So my mate Mario Moriche, Stef and i took to the stage in Mojacar’s artisan centre, and the years fell away. It’s frightening to think what sort of rhythm section we’d be if we’d played together for 33 years! I only re-established contact with Stef a couple of years back, and through the miracle of technology he supplied drums on three tracks from my Blue Odyssey album, but we were never in the same room at the same time.

Back in the murky 70’s, we shared a flat in Derby as green 18 year-olds, and before the decade was out, went our separate ways, Stef playing in Germany, and me in Scandinavia.  When we re-connected, it was like sitting around in our old lounge back in Vicarage Avenue, as if no time had passed. There is something special about musicians. Your relationships just endure. Even if you’ve been out of touch, and you can pick up where you left off with consummate ease.  The way we just walked on stage and ‘did the gig’ was amazing, and an experience I’m so grateful for, and hope to repeat. Let’s not wait another 33 years, eh matey? 🙂

A Christmas single for you!

As December rolls around, with Christmas hot (cold?) on its heels, I’ve made my Christmas song “One Stranger” available as a FREE download on Jamendo.

Just scroll down the sidebar on the right and click on the widget for One Stranger to get your digital copy now!

The theme is about homelessness. I’m not asking any money for it, but just think about those on the Streets this Christmas when you listen to this song and give a little to your favourite charity.

It’s that time of year again

It’s amazing how time flies. This time last year I was composing and publishing my song “One Stranger” which is about the homeless at Christmas time. As Christmas approaches again, I thought I’d post the video here as a reminder that there are many less fortunate than ourselves in this world.

The song was written and recorded over about three days, if I remember correctly. I worked fairly intensively, and it came together without too many problems. I wanted the video to look a bit like a Christmas edition of the old BBC Children’s story programme – Jackanory – Hope you enjoy it!
