So, after keeping Blue On Black and Blacktop Deluxe on the road for the past 17 years, what was next for me after finishing Blacktop Deluxe last October?

Well, I was certainly not going to stop making music that’s for sure, so I have embarked on a new recording project, my first Solo Album !

With the expert help and guidance of the brilliant Gareth Young and his awesome facilities at Cube Recording Studio Down here in Cornwall, work has commenced on a new Album, as yet untitled, which will contain 14 new tracks and is scheduled for availability early 2019.

So far the Drums (courtesy of the mighty Stephen Jackson) Bass and Keyboards via the awesome Gareth Young are underpinning my rhythm guitar work on all the songs.

Vocal tracking has started and a Brass session is also being organised for some of the tracks before it’s time for some lead guitar work.

I’ve got to say that I’m delighted with the results so far and I’m really excited to get the project finished and out to the world.

So the plan is to get the audio mixed and mastered ready for duplication before the end of December if possible then it’s Artwork to sort and Duplication to organise, still a little way to go then !

Meanwhile, I’ve been honoured and humbled by people’s reaction to the new Album project so as requested, I am making a ‘Pre Order’ option available exclusively via this site for a ‘special price’ of £9.99 (plus p&p ) which will be include a personally signed ‘CD’ and a saving of £2.00 on the eventual price.

I’m also frequently asked if I have any of my earlier works with the Blue on Black and Blacktop Deluxe still available to buy so, as promised, I will look out what I’ve still got available in the way of Discs and Downloads for sale and I will add purchase links for them on this site as soon as I can.

Life (my Leukaemia is 9 years in remission) and Music, is very good at the moment and I’m exceedingly grateful for all the positive feedback and encouragement I have had from friends and family.

Bless you all for your support and ‘Long May we all Rock’ 😎cropped-crf11.jpg
