IMG_3102

Hey wonderful people.
Here it is my debut single 


“Rise Again”

Written after a major flood in South Dunedin in 2015, then again on the Taieri Plain near Dunedin NZ, in 2017, after seeing the damage caused and people needing to rebuild their lives after the water receded.

Cold Wind Blows – Live songwriting

What you will watch in the video is my song writing process in action.
All I had at the start were just two chords and the words “Cold Wind Blows” the rest is improvised as I go. No second take.

Yes I record each songwriting session – it is a great way to remember the intention of the moment. Video is even better as I can see the chords I use too.

I will now tidy up the lyrics a bit.

(yes for those who know Dunedin I know the Nor-West wind is a warm wind I will change it to Nor-East – the biting cold one straight down the harbour)
