David Sinclair, music critic for the Times, reviewing an unreleased track called Reach from my forthcoming album Welcome To The Ball, describes it as "dark, dramatic and atmospheric. "I close my eyes and I'm floating in the clouds, I'm drifting in the sea," he sings as the music swirls around him in growing waves of electro-orchestral sound, and a sense of agitated desperation gradually engulfs him. "Angry voices close in on me so I start to run, run, run... The pain it comes, comes, comes." They could use this as the soundtrack for one of those Scandinavian TV murder-thrillers. With its deep sense of mystery and foreboding, this is music with real character...."
My instrumental album Dance of the Furies features alongside some great acts, Sigur Ros, Bloc Party, Bat for Lashes, Richard Hawley, among NBT Music Radio's 100 top albums of the year and a piece from the album entitled Destiny Waits While The Twilight Fires Fade is named as one of the top 100 singles of the year. Both the album and single tracks are available for download on I-Tunes and elsewhere on the site. Check out the following facebook links for the full review listings.

Please take the time to check out my new video on youtube based on a live studio recording. I wanted to keep this one sounding nice, clean and natural as an acoustic recording so I hope you like it. I will be releasing the song for download in the near future and am busy recording right now. Subscribe and details will be posted soon.

Looking forward to playing in the Recital Room, City Halls, Glasgow on 11th November. The acoustics in here are fantastic - this will be a purely acoustic gig and I will be playing new songs never before played live, soon to feature on a new acoustic EP out next year, as well as some old favourites with a bit of an acoustic makeover. Hoping there will also be a couple of special guests joining me on stage during the show.... Also playing that night will be Kelsey Hunter, who has a great voice and some great tunes. Definitely one to watch. This is all courtesy of the Acoustic Affair, run by PM Music.
Hope to see you there!
