New Album Preview Track 2!

Thanks to everyone for the great response to last week’s preview track “Waves” from my forthcoming fingerstyle CD ‘The Way Home.’ Here’s the next track preview, I wrote this one as a tribute to my good friend Thomas Leeb and so it’s fittingly titled “Mr Leeb”! This one sounds best played LOUD!

New CD Recorded!

I’m excited to have just finished recording my new solo fingerstyle guitar album. The CD will be called ‘The Way Home’ and features nine original compositions and two arrangements; including much requested pieces Kora Song and Albatross and previously unheard material.

The Froggy Bottom is sounding huge, thanks to engineering wizard Josh Clark of Get Real Audio, who also engineered Mike Dawes’ album ‘What Just Happened’.

The next stage is mastering, artwork and design and so we are looking at a late 2013/early 2014 release.
