Message from the artist
" I became a professional musician purely because something or somebody was pulling me towards that career. It was like a voice in my head telling me to have the determination to compose and record and then to teach other people. Teaching is still an important part of my life whereby I can help others to transform their feelings into pieces of music. It is like a therapy to me and something that I really enjoy - it is my small way of sharing my talent with others of all ages.
When I am composing I like to go on a journey in my own mind. I can visualise pictures and scenes, from a tranquil garden, to a seashore, to a picture of a beautiful woman. I then compose the music around that scene. Very often people hear the resulting album and comment that when they listen to the music they imagined the same scene that I had in my head when composing. It gives me a great thrill to think that I have succeeded in transferring the correct image into their minds.
My first album for New World is still one of my favourites - "Perfume" set the style that I have followed ever since. It was an album designed to give the listener a true sense of relaxation and contentment. I used visualisation to generate a musical score that would induce tranquillity and yet quiet confidence.
My latest album "Bliss" is the ultimate album to unwind to at the end of a busy day. New World calls it …music for bath time. It has proved to be very popular and I hope you will take the time to listen to the samples that are available on this Web Site. Thank you for reading my message and I hope you enjoy the music."
