Faith, culture, reminiscences, childhood, love and life - forged by a childhood growing up in the idyllic South-West of England and an upbringing that encouraged education through experience.
Influences: The Liverpool Beat Poets, Jack Clemo and reading many things over many years.
I consider myself, first and foremost, a songwriter. However many times the words are less suitable as lyrics and work better as poems. Sometimes I write for the sheer challenge of trying to express myself in a more taut, creative way than a lyric allows. I'm sure, just as in pop music, there is little new under the sun and we are all derivative to some extent or other. However, I offer these works, for what they're worth, for your perusal and hopefully, enjoyment.
