This song recalls scary moments at sea, when our ship entered the eye of a storm. Also a metaphor for the rough ride we are all having in the Covid pandemic. First single taken from the album All the Little Things, which will be released in two parts in June and September 2021.
‘Ride the Storm’ is available for free listening on Bandcamp, Soundcloud and Youtube. Also available on Spotify, iTunes and all other streaming services.

The Garden derives its name from a temporary lease (in the early 1970s!) of a derelict industrial patch to a beginning community gardening project.

New album ‘Meanwhile Gardens’ available now to listen & download on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon & more. It features the singles ‘Find My Way’ and ‘Aleppo Blues’, next to 9 amazing new songs both personal and political:
