I’ve got a new library album up at Universal – Daytime Oddities. It was released through the 3Monkeys label with brilliant support and encouragement from Stockholmer Anders Lewen. I wrote and recorded it during lockdown to keep my spirits up. Hope it does the same for you!
It’s an eccentric assortment of daft and catchy tunes. Ocarinas, penny whistles, jaw-harps, ukuleles, melodicas, recorders and clarinets, accompanied by toy pianos, farfisas, accordions, mouth trumpets and actual bells and whistles all blend together to stir up a brew of tasty idiocy.
Taking Spike Jones and His City Slickers and Carl Stalling’s music from the Looney Tunes cartoons as our starting points, we jam-packed it with unusual and memorable melodies with plenty of unexpected detours thrown in along the way.

I’ve been awarded a DYCP grant from the Arts Council to help further my musical adventures. I’m extremely grateful for this award and looking forward to learning new skills and producing interesting new work. Rock on!
Ali and I thought Adamski’s ‘Killer’ had a peculiar similarity to The Turtles’ ‘Happy Together’, so now they are. Happy together.
I’ve just written two tracks for a pet-inspired (!) album for Universal – Snuggle Bugging and Bow Wow Bounce. You can hear them HERE.
