Reflective journeys, progressive futures
A Welshman living in Aotearoa New Zealand
Ive been here a while now, enough time to know its where I will live out the rest of my life.
I love my home, my family and my life in New Zealand
I love creating music
Statistically I'm closer to the end of my life than the beginning.
People say stages of life, and I like that. It reminds me of the butterfly, and I'm sort of at the stage where I've just got my head around what everything is all about but noticed my wings are not as subtle and the days are getting shorter
This reflection of time and how quick it has gone gives me the motivation to work, to be creative, to collaborate, to make music that embeds itself in the mind, that's stirs emotion
I'm a self taught music maker and composer.
I will never be a master at either and I'm ok with that as I will always be learning and discovering and will manifest in the music I make
There is lashings of irony in that statement as I was an awful student at school, but there is nothing like time and reflection to erode the ego and value the gift of learning. Whilst my eyesight has changed, my horizons have got clearer
I consider my music as intimate soundscapes and I draw inspiration from social impacts and the complex journey humanity is on
Humanity has kind of lost its way and cohesion, or perhaps my view is naïve and its always been this way- I battle with that one right now
I have hope, humanity does rise from destruction, so I do believe peace can be achieved, but maintaining it ?
But one thing is certain, when Love, Kindness and Compassion are involved, the outcome is always good
"One2Three" was released in Feb 2023
