I have always written songs although it’s only in recent years I have had the courage to share them with a wider audience. I realised that the only way they would ever be heard was to get out and sing them myself, I was surprised and pleased at the response, it  gave me the confidence to play my music more often and to more people, the feedback has been amazing, including:

Beautiful, direct, unpretentious songs”

“Each song shimmers just like its own special gem, and lingers long in the memory.”

Being part of the Barnardo's Oldie Song Writing Competition is a brilliant roller-coaster ride which I am so happy and proud to be part of. To be selected for the top 4 is fantastic and the opportunity to have a song recorded professionally is very exciting. Please keep listening and donating to Barnardo's : )
