about

In order to move a mountain you start with the stones, this is me moving a few stones! When I entered Loopmaniac studios in September 2012 armed with few songs and an acoustic guitar I had no idea how this ‘recording malarkey’ would go! All I knew was I wanted to get these songs recorded in order to document part of my journey and raise some money for charity.

Here I am now sitting in the studio, it’s now March 2013 and the album will be released in a few weeks. What a journey!! I’ve been blessed in having the best people driving this project forward and ‘making it happen’ its certainly grown with every member of the band contributing and investing in the music in more ways than I could ever imagine.

There are sad songs, there are happy songs and there are even a few with little or no significant meaning, but when welded together create a common thread linking where I was to where I am now!

I would like you to listen to this collection of songs with a tear and a smile and if any of them give some kind of comfort then I’m a happy man.

Lets not forget what this project was all about – Myself and Stuart experienced extreme tragedy when we both lost our beautiful wives Nicola and Ruth to cancer. Their strength and courage have certainly contributed to our ability to carry on and make this all happen. We have been guided every step of the way and we both thank them for that loving direction.
All the money from music sales and gig money will go towards the Nicola Murray foundation and to Sarcoma UK on behalf of Ruth Henderson.

I want to thank the Eastwood band – Ali Ferguson, Gil Allan, Stuart Henderson, Liam Saunders, Eliot Murray, Billy Hunter and the FB Sunday choir ☺ you guys have added your talent and musical ability stamping your style on the music, and not forgetting the talented Mr. Kevin McCollum the photographer…. Who has documented this journey every step of the way. Thank you.

A particular special thanks needs to go to Liam and Stuart, Liam who owns Loopmaniac studios and who has been my musical rock for a number of years has kept this project alive and produced in my view an amazing piece of work – that I thank you my brother. And to Stuart, Stuart and I have walked the same path over the past year and found a common strength that has certainly kept me going. He has also been a collective partner in this project – the three of us have also had a brilliant laugh, which brings a smile to the album!

I hope you buy the album and come to the launch gig, you will have a great time because if you knew Nicola and Ruth you wont have any choice not too!!!! ☺

Lets move more stones together!

Track Name: You And Me
Spent a lot of time in your eyes spent a lot of time in your eyes
Told you stories about my life and all its casual lies
And I dream when I walk and I sleep when I talk
And ill always know how to tell you when.

Hey hey little lover boy little lover girl you and me
Told you stories about my life and all the things I see

And ill always know how to tell you when

You and me waiting you and me waiting on the other side
You and me waiting you and me waiting on the other ……side

And I dream when I walk and I sleep when I talk
And ill always know how to tell you when

Track Name: Up Inside
Paper roses in my head, stop me from fallin
Found it out that is was time, to stop the clawling there

Up inside, round my mind, keep it real, leave it all behind

Keep the rioters at bay, and then they call them
All you speak about today, will stop the crawling there

Up inside, round my mind, keep it real ,leave it all behind
Up inside, round my mind, keep it real, leave it all behind

Up inside, round my mind, keep it real, leave it all behind
Up inside, round my mind, keep it real, leave it all behind
Track Name: Maybe
Maybe can I tell you, maybe can I hold you, never let go of you tonight
Early in the morning, when were both yawning, tell you that I need you, and I hold you tight

And the stars, look down on every life, and tell us where were going right
And the moon, smiles at the sea below, and we smile all night

Maybe can I tell you, maybe can I hold you, never let go of you tonight
Early in the morning, when were both yawning, tell you that I need you, and I hold you tight

And the stars, look down on every life, and tell us where were going right
And the moon, smiles at the sea below, and we smile all night

And the stars, look down on every life, and tell us where were going right
And the moon, smiles at the sea below, and we smile all night

Maybe can I tell you, maybe can I hold you, never let go of you tonight
Early in the morning, when were both yawning, tell you that I need you, and I hold you tight
Track Name: Last Night
Here I stand got my feet placed on the ground
The moon above you and my head spinning around
Did I offer you to treat me this way you know what I’m gonna do
If you keep on coming in late this question is for you

Where were you last night, did you come in late my dear
Its surly not your style, but it is my biggest fear
What was he like and was he nice, did the taxi cab break down
All the other reasons you give, keep me spinning round

I live for you it’s the only thing I know
The love I have crumbles when you go
Did I offer you to treat me this way you know what I’m gonna do
If you keep on coming in late this question is for you

Where were you last night, did you come in late my dear
Its surly not your style, but it is my biggest fear
What was he like and was he nice, did the taxi cab break down
All the other reasons you give, keep me spinning round

Here I stand got my feet placed on the ground
The moon above you and my head spinning around
Did I offer you to treat me this way you know what I’m gonna do
If you keep on coming in late this question is for you

Where were you last night, did you come in late my dear
Its surly not your style, but it is my biggest fear
What was he like and was he nice, did the taxi cab break down
All the other reasons you give, keep me spinning round
keep me spinning round
keep me spinning round
Track Name: Backbone
Get yourself some backbone
Give yourself time to think again
The feelings you are having
You’ve only got yourself yourself to blame
Try no to worry
Try not to think things through all the time

Get yourself some backbone
Everything will work out just fine
We all get lonely to
Don’t you know that we all are lonely to

Standing by the river
Doesn’t solve the problems that you have
The water is deceptive
The cleansing of your soul is in your heart
Try no to worry
Try not to think things through all the time

Get yourself some backbone
Everything will work out just fine
We all get lonely to
Don’t you know that we all are lonely to

You dreamped last night she was by yourside
And the stars were shining bright
Dreams you have keep you warm at night
Comfort that keeps your world alive

We all get lonely to
Don’t you know that we all are lonely to
Track Name: Superstar
I take you dancing on a Saturday night

The floor is grooving and your feet do the same
People dancing music is to blame

Come and dance with me, smile for free
Common baby, keep it movin on

Driving by my house tonight
Couldn’t believe my eyes
There standing on the ledge
Was a friend of mine

Let me talk you down
Aint nothing gonna hit the ground
You got something on your mind
Let me be so kind
Let me talk you down

Let me talk you down

I know she left you days ago
Took everything you had
Left you with the clothes you wear
And the kids without a dad

Let me talk you down
Aint nothing gonna hit the ground
You got something on your mind
Let me be so kind
Let me talk you down

Let me talk you down

Friends need each other
They even need an mot
Let me try and talk to you
Before your……..lookin up at me

That’s it friend I see a smile
Someone who needs love
I gotta seat right here
Where you can scream above

Let me talk you down
Aint nothing gonna hit the ground
You got something on your mind
Let me be so kind
Let me talk you down

Let me talk you down

Let me talk you down

Let me talk you down
Track Name: Talk To Me
Would you like to talk to me tonight?
Cause there’s something on my mind that just aint right
I heard that you were leaving tonight

So would you like to tell me
Would you like to tell me
Would you like to talk to me tonight?

The sugar cotes the malice in your eyes
Disguising all your white casual lies
It’s the freaky changing attitude of life

So would you like to tell me
Would you like to tell me
Would you like to talk to me tonight?


Woh the sailing boat is heading towards the shore
And where its heading I don’t really know
I need to work this thing, this thing out in my head


So would you like to tell me
Would you like to tell me
Would you like to talk to me tonight?
Track Name: Try My Best
Talked a lot and cried all night
Watched the candles held you tight
Told stories old and new
There’s nothing else for us to do

And Ill try my best to point the stars your way
And ill try my best to wake up everyday
Ill try my best to call out your name
But you and I will never be the same

Holding candles in the rain
The dreams I never dream of are the ones that light the flame
Pushing castles in the sand
Moving there slowly walking hand in hand

And Ill try my best to point the stars your way
And ill try my best to wake up everyday
Ill try my best to call out your name
But you and I will never be the same

Talked a lot and cried all night
Watched the candles held you tight
Told stories old and new
There’s nothing left for us to do

And Ill try my best to point the stars your way
And ill try my best to wake up everyday
Ill try my best to call out your name
But you and I will never be the same
Track Name: Would You Do
Would you do
Would you do one last thing for me, before you leave
I’ve been so low
I’ve been so low that you wouldn’t believe, no you wouldn’t believe

I just want you to sit right down, find a spot, talk about all that we have got
And hold me now yes hold me now
Dreaming, walking, talking, thinking, talking think that everything is fine
That’s all I wanna say, that’s all I wanna say, to make you stay

Would you do
Would you do one last thing for me, before you leave
I’ve been so low
I’ve been so low that you wouldn’t believe, no you wouldn’t believe

I just want us to take a walk, round the park at night
And talk about everything that’s right
And hold me now yes hold me now
Dreaming, walking, talking, thinking, talking think that everything is fine
That’s all I wanna say, that’s all I wanna say, to make you stay
Track Name: Scattered Days
You say your leaving, but I am working all the time
I’m not believing, the words you are saying tonight

When did the sun go round the moon,
Im watching you leave this place to soon
Then I was standing here in my own
Ill tell them all tonight im alone

I watch you leaving, but I am still here on my own
The boss is calling, and I am gonna pick up that phone

When did the sun go round the moon,
Im watching you leave this place to soon
Then I was standing here in my own
Ill tell them all tonight im alone

When did the sun go round the moon,
Im watching you leave this place to soon
Then I was standing here in my own
Ill tell them all tonight im alone

When did the sun go round the moon,
Im watching you leave this place to soon
Then I was standing here in my own
Ill tell them all tonight im alone

Scattered days on my mind

Scattered days there on my mind
Track Name: By My Side
Time
Floats into my idealistic mind
Lying like a cigarette
That’s offering health benefits
To me

Why
Sipping down a bottle every night
Dreaming of the time we had
The beautiful sublime we had

And you
Yes you
You know
Ill always love you now
And now
Ill always want you here
By my side
By my side

Why
Why am I the one to hold your hand
When others come and others go
A steady stream a steady flow

And you
Yes you
You know
Ill always love you now
And now
Ill always want you here
By my side
By my side

Why

By my side
Why

Time
Floats into my idealistic mind
Lying like a cigarette
That’s offering health benefits

And you
Yes you
You know
Ill always love you now
And now
Ill always want you here
By my side
By my side
By my side
Track Name: White Feather
She was the one that said you can do it
Keep your head held high let the rain hit your face

Gave me a list of things to prove it
In a couple of years you will start to see the flame

White feather fall before me
Protect the path I lead
Make sure that I’m not lonely
Keep watching over me

Morning sun was our background
Talk about the things that we never did

All the beauty that you showed there
Celebrating and talking about the life we lead

White feather fall before me
Protect the path I lead
Make sure that I’m not lonely
Keep watching over me

Time came to stop all the talking
And you drifted of into the evening sun

Taking a piece of my heart with you
Leaving the faith you had in me to carry on

White feather fall before me
Protect the path I lead
Make sure that I’m not lonely
Keep watching over me

White feather fall before me
Protect the path I lead
Make sure that I’m not lonely
Keep watching over me
