After a very long break (and a few false starts), I’m now ready to get back into playing gigs locally with the view of branching out into country areas as well as touring interstate.

I’ve put together a playlist on SoundCloud called CS Acoustic Demo 2019 which highlights five covers and five of my own songs played by me and an acoustic guitar.

If you’re interested in new local music then check out the five originals and let me know what you think.

Any feedback is most welcome.

If you are a venue owner or booker and you’re on the lookout for another songwriter/acoustic soloist to join your roster of performers then check out the whole demo package below to hear if what I do fits in with your venues aesthetic.

If there is a fit, you can contact me here.

I’m currently working on a new bio, one sheet and EPK which will be uploaded to this site as soon as it’s finished. In the meantime enjoy my acoustic demo.

Yes, Mara and I got ourselves a puppy. His name is Charlie, he’s a Groodle (a Golden Retriever/Poodle cross) and he’s very, very, very CUTE!

We’ve had Charlie for almost three weeks now and the change in the household has been nothing short of amazing.

There’s less stress (except when the odd accident appears on the floor), more love and an elevated sense of happiness in the house and this in turn, has been good for our overall health as well.

Pets have been proven to lower blood pressure and decrease stress levels which is something that I definitely need in my life at the moment.

As you might imagine, having a puppy in the house when you’re so used to your own company has been quite a challenge and I’ve been a little quiet on the blogging and songwriting front because of this.

I wasn’t able to complete this years FAWM and my Song A Week Challenge has been put on hold for the time being. I just couldn’t sustain the output of music and content plus, look after a demanding puppy at the same time.

Initially, this situation was messing with my head but I’ve gotten past the feelings of guilt and am now just getting on with things.

I’m amazed at how fast Charlie is growing already and I know there will be a time very soon where I’m able to get back to (almost) where I was before with my blogging and songwriting but until then I’ll do the best I can with what time I have at my disposal.

In the meantime, here’s another picture of Charlie just to let sink in how wonderfully cute he is…

Each and every Monday for 2019 I’ll be uploading a song as part of my self imposed Song A Week Challenge.

Song number 5 of the challenge is an instrumental that I call Return To North Star.

This piece of music was inspired by a collaboration between Robert Fripp and Darryl Hall called “North Star” which was from Hall’s 1980 album “Sacred Songs” in which Roberet Fripp produced.

It’s an instrumental…

If you have any comments, feedback, encouragement or even song ideas that I could use to keep this challenge going then either comment below or, let me know here.

In the meantime, I’ve got to get a move on with SAW06…
