Review of Fred Kinbom’s EP

Fred Kinbom’s new EP “Quit My Job” has been released and I’m on it. Both musically and photographically. For some reason all of the bands I’ve played have chosen not to have a band pic on the cover so this is actually the first time my face is used to sell something. Well apart from ABBA the Show of course but then it’s my face just because it looks a bit like Benny’s. Anyway, the EP got a really brill review at whisperinandhollerin, go check it out!

NACOA Charity single release

NACOA Charity single

It’s on iTunes and CD Baby! The charity single I have worked on with Maria McAteer, that is. The song is a version of Sam Cooke’s classic “A Change Is Gonna Come” and features Maria’s gourgeous vocals, my tinkling piano and beautiful strings played by the Stanford Quartet, humbly arranged by yours truly. All the money made from the sales of this single will go to the charity NACOA (National Association for Children of Alcoholics). Among many other things they provide a helpline for children with alcohol dependent parents to call if they need someone to talk to. I think it’s a wonderful cause.

Line Up by Ian Stephenson

My friend Ian Stephenson have finally finished his solo album “Line Up” that has been eight years in the making. I met Ian when I went to Newcastle in 2006 and I recorded some soprano sax on a jazzy polska he had written. Well, that track “Coming Home” is included. The music on the CD is based in Celtic folk with lots of Scandinavian influences. You can get it here on Ian’s site.
