Cold-Hearted Girl

A song on the last album is cold-hearted girl. The actual riff that drives the song is something I have played with for decades – probably since 1974! I finally found a use for it. The lyrics were sang without any preparation – I just let the music take me and sang whatever came out… which was,   Cold hearted girl Cold hearted girl Cold hearted girl Cold hearted girl Outside its cold as ice Reminds me of your heart Your empty words That broke us apart Its plain to me that you think of yourself So now its goodbye My Joanna Cold hearted Cold Hearted Cold Hearted  Girl Outside the snow is falling Its filling your heart That frozen smile you use when you leave Its plain to me

Fire 2019

So another remixed song – this time its FIRE! I liked the original but I learned so much since I originally recorded it that I couldn’t resist tweaking it….. have a listen – I added harmonies and made it a bit more rocky… The next song will be all new! Meanwhile, Far Away remains by most popular effort with over 8000 streams on Spotify alone! Thanks….

Marketing – It’s all about Marketing

I have just spent hours this week trying to find ways to market my music and books. I’m a professional marketing person with a reputation for doing solid work but when it comes to marketing my stuff we are talking a different level of scale. Let me give you an example. I release a song – like this last one. I post it to twitter, Facebook, etc. – all the usual sites. I write a blog about it. Result – nothing …. people are too busy and quite honestly I’m selling something new every 5 minutes…. OK – let’s get clever then. I know, lets make a video to promote a song – like this one perhaps? Now that takes time… hours. I like the result – so now what?

Life Has Never Been Like This…

It’s easy to moan about modern life…. and a lot of people seem to do so. For me, though, modern life is amazing. I mean, here I am 59 years old and I’m doing my day job, writing books, making music, taking photographs and so much more. Not only that but I’m actually having a bit of success doing it. I wonder what other generation of humanity could boast such a feat! Most previous generations were focused on one thing – survival. It’s not just me that is having fun with creativity. According to an article I read this morning, there are 25,000 new songs added to Spotify every day! 1 million every 6-weeks. According to another article I googled just now, there is a new book added to Amazon

Love, Music and Obsession

Great blog title. I’m obsessive and have put out another album of music. Actually, I even have two more songs lined up for release as well. The album I called The Anatomy of Love. Hence – Love, Music and obsession…. Strangely enough, I find that friends and relatives simply ignore all of my please to give my music a listen. I think I’ve written so many books and recorded so much music and stuff, people are just – well – sick of me. It’s disappointing that really as you kind of hope friends and relatives will share and help you build an audience. Maybe it’s me but I don’t see it happening. Then, just as you are thinking well, why do I bother if no one actually listens, I get
