I have a fair reason to be late in my offering for Piano Day. I broke my little finger knuckle and metacarpal in my right hand three weeks ago. I only just had the cast off and so had to spend most of the day playing piano before I got any kind of workable movement from my little finger. The surgeon says playing the piano is perfect physio for my knuckle and finger as long as I don’t over do it, so I wrote this piece not only to celebrate piano day, but also as a therapy for my recovering hand. Due to this it’s not overly complex or strenuous, but hopefully says enough in it’s modest composition.
I’ve neglected my website for the last couple of weeks as very exciting things have been keeping me busy. I can’t say much more on that right now – other than that I’m doing something I’ve wanted to do ever since I first became serious about making music and making a living from it. I will reveal more in time. FOR NOW! You can have this small collection of work to keep you busy. I’ve been working on a cover version of ‘I Heard it Through the Grapevine’ (the Marvin Gaye version) as Wy, I’ve been recording lots of solo piano work as ‘Sonder’ and a new soundscape website curated by Janek Schaefer, which I contributed to, has been launched. See all below.

I did a live ‘rhythm’ set at The Exchange in Bristol a couple of weeks ago. Here are two clips from the set.
