The songs and the Musicians

The songs are all original material. Written & composed by myself so as such they are very close to my heart. To have the chance to make these recordings with such gifted musicians and genuine down-to-earth people is something really special. All musicians on the album, bar one, came from the local area in and around Aschaffenburg and every one helped bring to life the stories, tales and emotions that lay behind each song.

This collection consisted of fourteen songs, recorded with fourteen different musicians, over a period of fourteen weeks…… give or take a day’s recording here and there. With the exception of one song which did not make it onto this release, (Trouble), this will be on the forthcoming 2nd Album.

Each musician had a part to play in this, each one put a little bit of their heart and soul into the recordings and each of them helped to make this something really special. I hope to see these songs shared with as wide an audience as possible.

Recording Process

All tracks on the album were recorded and produced by Michael Hauck from Loch Less Studio in Steinbach. A sleepy wee village just outside the town of Aschaffenburg. These are real quality, professional recordings. Beautifully arranged and mixed to a very high standard.

To date, recording these songs with so many great musicians brought some of the proudest and satisfying moments into my life. It was a lot of effort and hard work at times, but it has also been a most enjoyable and enlightening journey which I will never forget.
