Ronnie Lane’s sublime track Debris, from The Faces’ album A Nod’s As Good As A Wink, is an all-time favourite of mine and a huge influence on a lot of the music I make.  So for the wonderful Kenney Jones (Small Faces, Faces, The Who) to say this about my new song The Times in Your Life is high praise indeed  

“It has a Ronnie Lane / Faces feel – I like it”

Well he should know 😀

Dipping my toe in the playlist pool. Link below to the first few tunes. There’s no carefully decided track order – simply throwing in some of the tracks that touch me – for all sorts of reasons. Hope you might feel the same about a track or two.

Going to keep adding so please give it a follow and hopefully there’ll be something for you ❤️ x

I was incredibly fortunate back at the beginning of 2020 to meet a quite brilliant saxophone player called Nathan Haines, a musician of world renown, who I was hoping to book for a project I was curating in his home city of Auckland.  Somewhat inevitably, Covid put an end to the project but the connection was not in vain.  Almost exactly a year after we met, I am thrilled to be releasing a song on which Nathan not only played a sublime saxophone part, but which he also mixed for me.  His contribution has taken this song to an entirely new place and I couldn’t be more thrilled with it – or keen to share it with the world.

Check out Nathan’s work at NathanHaines.com and you’ll immediately understand why I feel so honoured to have him play on this track.

Three years ago I wrote and recorded this song – inspired by the announcement that Sir Ben Ainslie, with the backing of INEOS and the Royal Yacht Squadron, would be mounting a challenge for the 36th America’s Cup, to be held in Auckland in early 2021.

Time has flown by and tomorrow (15th January 2021), Sir Ben and Team Ineos UK will line up for their first race in the Prada Cup, in an attempt to do what no British sailing team has done in the 170 year history of the cup – win back a trophy that was surrendered at its inception in 1851.

If you like it turn it up and sing it across the world – go Team Ineos UK
