Old Man Stone: ‘Paisley Park’ Video Released

In 1997 I was lucky enough to be part of the band Old Man Stone (OMS), along with fellow composer Barrie Gledden, Rick Dowson & Johnny Rock.

Our debut album ‘Spork‘ charted well around the globe & we toured extensively in support of the release.

Here’s the official video to the single ‘Paisley Park’ from the ‘Spork‘ album.

MUSIC ON: ‘Going for a Song’ Short Animation Featuring My Track ‘Twists and Turns’

I’ve recently been involved with the creation of music (writing, recording, mixing & mastering) for a new short animation helping people understand how copyright works.

The animation, for CopyrightUser.org via AudioNetwork, follows the writing of a song from inception to getting it ‘out’ & heard by the public.

Produced by ‘Worth Knowing Productions Ltd.‘, they took my track ‘Twists and Turns‘ and reverse engineered it – going from humming the tune, to adding lyrics; recording it, to performing it and making it available to buy, download or use.

The original track is here. Written by myself, Barrie Gledden & Key Loy.
Additional vocals & music were added for the animation by Kes Loy & Lucy Kimmings.
