Latest News: August 11th 2014.

New compilation news. 'Shadow of the Wind' re-issue news. 'Elysian Fields' re-issue news. 'Pure' News. Blimey!
Excuse my language, but what a bloody month. I haven't stopped! I've literally been glued to Cubase every waking moment. I have however now reached the point where I need to take a short break from music and the world in general, if only to preserve what little remains of my sanity. This gives me the perfect opportunity to take a bit of time out to update this site... and there's a fair amount to report.

First: AD Music have just released an amazing triple album (yes folks, TRIPLE album!) of music, in celebration of the fact that they've been in business for 25 glorious years. I've been with them for most of that time and I'm still there, which I would say is a total testament to how great they are to work with! Anyway, this is a download only album, so no CDs are available, but at under a tenner for 40 tracks, could you get better value for money? No, I think not. All of your favourite AD Music themes are on there, including three of mine. Take a peek and buy yours now!

The re-issue of Shadow of the Wind is also now available to pre-order. The official release date is September 5th, so that's nice and exciting - not least because the start of September will also see the release of another two fab albums from AD. The first is from my 'boss' (but really I would rather call him 'friend!') David Wright, with his new album 'Beyond the Airwaves (Volume 1)'. The second is the debut album from the lovely Amanda 'iotronica' Byrne. I've heard this incredible work and trust me, you *will* want to buy 'Of Moons and Stars'!

This month will also see me complete the mixing and orchestration of the bonus track for the re-issue of Elysian Fields. This one has taken some time because I couldn't decide whether to write something synthy or something orchestral. In the end I settled for something kind of inbetween. I hope you'll like it! Pre-order details will of course be posted here as soon as they're available... in other words, any day now. This coming week is exciting because the final draft of the new cover artwork is being completed - again, I'll post that here as soon as I can.

With that out of the way (along with a whole shedload of game and library music I've been working on - yes, I've been busy!) I will be spending the next couple of months focusing completely on the new album Pure. This one is very, very special to me and I hope that will come across to you when you hear it. I hope to be posting the first few audio snippets in the next few weeks.

For now though - a bit of relaxation! Burn-out is a terrible thing and I have felt myself approaching it lately, big time. So, taking a few days off to nip that in the bud, after which I shall be plunging headfirst into another composing-fest!
