Fluffy Little Dog

Another Christmas, another Christmas song. Kittens In The Snow was rather successful with children, so this year I aimed my song at Children specifically. Basically, I removed the innuendo. I worked with Richard Williams on this (again), he did the piano, recording and mixing. Vocals and lyrics by me. You can buy the song in places including iTunes and you can stream it on Spotify and Google Play etc. All proceeds go to charity, which is next to nothing if

I haven't put this on any stores, as it's not up to the quality I consider good enough. You can however, find it on SoundCloud. The lyrics go: Got packed from snow last night, pretty tight. A bunch of kids, maybe 12 or ten. And I came to

When I was at University, I was in a band called Intrinsic and we wrote this EP. All I can hear is the things wrong with it, rather than what is right - but it is a part of my musical history. We put the album on Jamendo so you can download it and make your own mind up! I really should hunt out some of the live recordings we did at a later point, as we managed some lovely
