Welcome

Hi, I’m John.  This site is a showcase for my songs as well as a few pages of hints and tips on home recording and songwriting.

The About page gives you some information about me.  The Songs link at the top of this page takes you to some of the songs I’ve written and recorded where, if you're interested, you can listen to them as well as read the lyrics and also some background notes to each song.  The Guides & Tips pages include information on how I go about writing and recording songs, together with tips I hope might be useful to other home recording and songwriting enthusiasts (there’s a lot of us out there!).

A Throw of the Dice

Spain’s ancient pilgrimage route is a tough test of both body and spirit. Many also take an inward journey of contemplation.



The fickle finger of fate will point in our direction too one day!

Check out my videos on YouTube HD or Vimeo via links on some of the song pages. Click the appropriate icon on each song page.  Vimeo videos default to HD, but in YouTube you may need to switch to 1080HD for best results.
