MUSIC


This might catch your attention

 

Close to Zero

Released in July 2016, these twelve songs come from a range of ideas and inspirations, some deep, some fun, and some a mixture of both. I've stayed with my folk-rock/acoustic roots and produced a collection that I'm really happy with. Singing falsetto can be quite a challenge. You can hear samples (and purchase) at CD Baby or Amazon UK or Amazon US or iTunes or lots of other locations. The songs are also available on many streaming services.

   

   

The fire still burns...the music keeps coming

 

Signs of Corrosion

Released in July 2015, I guess this album suggests I'm still basically a folk singer, but maybe it also demonstrates my love affair with music in general. As usual, they're all original songs, with me playing, singing, and producing all parts. Being a loner can sometimes make things difficult. You can listen to samples of the songs and download a copy of the album at
CD Baby
or Amazon UK or Amazon US or iTunes or at a growing number of other places.

   

   

A lament for one...and many

 

1916 Memorial

I wrote and recorded this song in remembrance of the boy in the image opposite -- and to the many others like him. You can listen to a sample and download a copy at CD Baby or Amazon UK or Amazon US or iTunes or lots of other locations.

   

   

At last, an album

 

Out of Nowhere

Some of you will know that I've been a songwriter/musician for a long time, but until recently it’s been a bit tricky to hear any of my work other than at my rare live performances. I thought I'd try changing that. So in the winter of 2013 I recorded the album Out of Nowhere -- sixteen of my songs, with me the sole performer and producer. You can listen to samples and buy (if you want) at CD Baby or Amazon MP3 or iTunes or a bunch of other places.

His new best friend goes 'woof!'

 

The Boatbuilder's Nose

Published by CQUniPRESS, this long-awaited book demonstrates Colin's restless compulsion to travel down new literary paths. It can be read as a light, slightly fanciful novel but it also takes a serious peek at the nature of human perception and how this is linked to ancestral drives and contemporary social behaviour.  Read about it (and order it if you want) on Amazon US or Amazon UK or BetterWorldBooks.
