Welcome to my New Updated Website.
This is the new home for my songs, poems, blogs, and other projects that I have in the pipeline. Please feel free to explore, comment, purchase, and subscribe.
A few years ago one of my poems, “Passing Stranger”, was published in a collection: “Poems For Peace”.
The poem was inspired when I saw a young couple and their child playing beside a war memorial, but seemingly not really "seeing" it. I imagined the ghost of one of those named on the stone yearning to speak to them, and what they might say. “Passing Stranger” was the result. I have now released it as the song you can listen to here. I hope you will enjoy listening, and, if so, it would be greatly appreciated if you could give support by way of a donation to download the song for your collection. A % of any profits are to directly help an ex-soldier and family member who’s health is suffering. The basic download is £2; if anybody is fortunate enough to give a little more there is the option to do so. Many thanks! Steve.

In the coming months I will be developing the web site further, and hope to record more songs in 2022.
