Fiberglass and Megapixels

The film "Fiberglass and Megapixels" has use one of my songs on the closing scenes of the film. It has already won a number of awards at film festivals and I went to Salt Lake City to meet the brothers Derek and Craig Hoffman who shot and produced the film. I have also been asked by the BBC Natural History team to work with them on the next Bearwalker program. I am still gigging but I haven't booked any Festivals this year so I hope to catch up with my Fans soon

The Musicians I have Worked with

It has been 2 years since I recorded my album “Lost for Words” and I want to say how much I enjoyed working with the musicians that were bought in to play their parts. None of them had big egos and were a Joy to be with. Jose Joyette ( Drummer) The nicest, gentlest person you would ever want to meet and a guy that has played for all the best performers around. Alpheous Little (Bass) Has a groove that is infectious and so on it what more can I say. Chris Wilson (Piano) He tuned into my feelings straight away and came up with some of the classest scores that took my songs to another level. Derek Johnson ( Producer) He was my guru long before the album was thought about. I met him just after I played on a small stage at Glastonbury and he was playing guitar for a big reggae band.. We connected right away and keep in touch on a regular basis. I look forward to when I can work with them again
