Weightlessness

Weightlessness

Another track finished towards the space collection. This one has been in production for a while, one of those hard to finish tracks. For the video I was planning on having an astronaut floating around but it’s ended up being a tribute to Hubble, featuring footage and CGI from NASA/ESA/Hubble that depicts the 5th and final repair of the telescope.

Ain’t Nobody Playin’ – Official Lyric Video

Ain’t Nobody Playin’ – Official Lyric Video

The official lyric video is now up! Here’s the lyrics written out too, enjoy! 🙂

Ain’t Nobody Playin’

Ain’t nobody playin’
Ain’t nobody playin’

When I first saw you, you had me mesmerised
I would have done anything for you
But the way that you treat me, not showing no respect
Is something that I just can’t let you do

So I make my feelings clear, I lay it on the line
This is my ultimatum now you’re running out of time
You’re playing me, you’re using me and what you do is cruel
You can’t keep expecting me to play it by your rules

No games, you got me all wrong
You just ain’t taking me seriously (ain’t nobody playin’)
No games, not playing along
Ain’t nobody gonna make a fool out of me

Gave you a chance, thought we could work it through
But you let me down at every turn
Thought that I would just follow your every wish and your every command
But respect is something that you have to earn

Well I’ve got more respect for me than you could ever give
I don’t like being played, it’s not the way I wanna live
And do you really think you’ve got me on the runaround
Quit pushing to the limit before I burn the house down

No games, you got me all wrong
You just ain’t taking me seriously (ain’t nobody playin’)
No games, not playing along
Ain’t nobody gonna make a fool out of me

When I first saw you
I would have done anything, ooo anything
When I first saw you
I would have done anything for you

No games, you got me all wrong
You just ain’t taking me seriously (ain’t nobody playin’)
No games, not playing along
Ain’t nobody gonna make a fool out of me

No games, you got me all wrong
You just ain’t taking me seriously (ain’t nobody playin’)
No games, not playing along
Ain’t nobody gonna make a fool out of me

No games, you got me all wrong
You just ain’t taking me seriously (ain’t nobody playin’)
No games, not playing along
Ain’t nobody gonna make a fool out of me

The new release is finally here! Figured it was time to make my dream funk album so I’m turning it out one track at a time throughout 2019. The idea is to share a lot of fun times with friends – writing, recording and performing music that we love and hope that you love too.

Absolutely honoured to have the fabulous Nick Van ‘Groove’ Gelder adding his own dose of funk to this track. Teaming him up with my old partner in funk Gaz Rackham on bass, I’ve ended up with a perfect rhythm section! Another old collaborator, Franco Barroso, provided some finishing touches with funky guitar riffs and the outro strings.

Big thanks to Julian Chown at Joules Productions and Jerome at The Airlab for their amazing engineering and mastering skills, couldn’t have done this without you guys!

A little background on the song – this was originally written in March 2002 for an upcoming TLC album. Sadly we all know what happened a month later and the song was never submitted. However in honour of its original intended purpose, I decided to keep in the US accent on the intro vocal and the reference to ‘burn the house down’ in the lyrics.

OK, here it is, the fourth video for the Mythology Music project. The videos are getting more adventurous each time and this one features some stunning images from the Hubble telescope. Full credits are shown at the end of the video.

These are written as relaxation pieces so sit back and chill out while you enjoy the view x

Dreaming Of The Stars

Dreaming Of The Stars

My second track for Mythology Music. This started as a relaxation project but somehow the first release is turning into a space music project! Actually I’ve always loved sci-fi music and while I’m enjoying working on these tracks, I’m looking forward to doing something a lot more cinematic later on.

All tracks will appear at mythologymusic.com and will be released to download stores once the whole project is complete.

Be Where You Be

Be Where You Be

‘Be Where You Be’ is the new single out today. The track features some cool hammond from Atheen and the amazing Dave Page on widdly guitar outro.

Dave will be performing at some gigs with Atheen soon, so you’ll get to marvel at his widdling right before your eyes. Sign up to our mailing list to be kept informed of gig dates!
