I have written quite a large number of songs over the years. Occasionally I will perform them accompanied by guitar or piano. I have even got as far as recording a few of them.

My dream has always been to have a band to play my songs and now we have FLAGSHIP.  Together with my friends Mike  Freeman (keyboards) Rick Shields (bass guitar), Leon Betts (Singer) and Tweedy (Drums) this is now happening.  Several of the songs are about local history (local to Hull and East Yorkshire anyway).  We play them in a keyboard-based style approaching Prog-rock. Get in touch to find out more.

 

In the meantime I would be happy for you to sing my songs, I'm sure we can sort out royalties if it went that far.  There are love songs and what might be described as folk songs - you know, songs with a message or a meaning.  Then there's my stage musical.  It needs a bit of work but the basics are there.

Alternatively, I have written to order so maybe I could write a little song for you or your organisation.
