The Lockdown Sessions Volume 1

I've been distracted by a couple of other projects recently, and wrestling with some of the longer term affects of C-19 I think as well, but I've finally got round to pulling together the audio from the live sessions earlier this year.

So here is week one of the lockdown sessions:

Volume 2 will follow in due course.

The Lockdown Sessions

I'm recording a song a day, as requested by friends, as-close-to-live-as-my-kit-will-allow every day this week and pushing them straight up to social media.

Here's yesterday's and today's. I'll build this blog post with each one as they arrive...

Session 1 - The White Tower

Session 2 - Road Song

Session 3 - Welcoming Arms (sorry about that chord!)

Session 4 - The Winter King

Session 5 - Eden's Grace

Session 6 - Only a Small Step

Session 7 - Cirencester and Words

Scrapbook part two

Things have been a bit interesting here of late. Will explain more in due course but in the meantime, and my apologies for the delay, here is batch two of the scrapbook from my recent-ish song-writing course.

Scrapbook part one

I went on a songwriting retreat last week. As well as being a great week away from it all with some great people, it was also pretty productive.
I'm not sure how many of these will survive in the longer term but I thought I'd share the rough recordings of the songs as they formed.
Four this week, four more next.
