All of the above YouTube videos are from the album Stonepenge.

Stonepenge was the name of the band I was in

while I was teaching at an international language school,

King’s School in Beckenham in south London from 2007 to 2012.

Initially, Stonepenge was made up Steve Bullen (bass),

Jeremy Goes (guitar, harmonica), Ronnie Haar (guitar, vocals),

Michele Monks (violin, vocals)and myself.

Jeremy later left the band to leave the four of us.

Thierry Deneux was our drummer during the recording sessions

and a couple of live gigs in Penge. We disbanded in 2013.  


Holy Spirit

It was 1984, I was at secondary school (high school) when I was invited to a Christian festival called Spring Harvest by a school friend called Peter Karlik. What I experienced there ‘blew my mind’ and I returned ‘on fire for God’. Shortly afterwards I started going to the monthly Days of Renewal at Ampleforth College in North Yorkshire.
The Days of Renewal were held in the crypt of this famous Catholic boy's school and facilitated by some of the monks - Fr Stephen Wright and Fr Ian Petit. The worship, led by a music teacher, Brendan Walls, featured prominently in the services and I became part of the youth group that played and sang.
There was something special about those meetings, part of the spiritual revival within the Catholic Church at the time which came to be known as the Charismatic Renewal. 'Holy Spirit', written by a young trainee priest called Mark McGreevy, was one of the songs we sang.

Below are a selection of songs that I’ve recorded over the years. If you’d like to buy any of them or browse more songs, why not pop over to my Bandcamp site where you can download single or multiple tracks.

Colours

Imagine. Starting your life all over again.
Imagine being reborn. Imagine you are loved as you are. Imagine that you accepted as you are.
Imagine that there is a plan for your future, a good plan, a plan that will see you flourish and grow and prosper. A plan that is only for you because you are unique. Because there is no one like you in the whole of history. That's what this song is about.


Les Cyclades

The Cycladic Islands are a group of

Greek islands in the Mediterranean,

Halfway between the mainland and Crete.  

After we got married, my wife and I went

To Santorini for our honeymoon. We fell

in love with Greece and spent that and

the next two summers island hopping -

staying on one island for a few days

with a local family or in a hotel,

renting a scooter and exploring,swimming,

tasting the local dishes before taking

a ferry to the next island. This song

Is a paean to those sun-kissed days.
