Valerian – Out Now

“Valerian” is a song about heroes, about needing heroes and about becoming heroes.

No matter where in the world we are we see injustice and corruption. While these evils may be part of our human nature, so are our virtues.

I think most hero-themed stories examine the internal struggle between our good and evil and celebrate those who choose to fight injustice and corruption instead of succumbing to it.

Mark Hamill Can Handle – Music Video

**UPDATE 09 MAY 2017** Hello everyone, thanks so much for the support with this release. The video got around 20k views between Facebook and YouTube in the first few days and the man himself MARK HAMILL shared the song with some kind words on both Twitter and Facebook. It’s safe to conclude that this release is a success!

Finally the music video for “Mark Hamill Can Handle” is here!

All I want is for you to enjoy this song/video and share it with anyone who may enjoy it.

Official hashtag: #MarkHamillCanHandle

The video was made by the extremely talented James Muxworthy.

The story of “Mark Hamill Can Handle”

A little while ago I wrote and recorded a new song on a whim and what happened was amazing. The song captured the joy and anticipation felt all around me leading up to the first Star Wars movie in a decade and the comeback of cultural icons like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia. Mark Hamill himself tweeted the song saying he was ‘surprised and humbled’ by it, which was way more than I could have hoped for with the song.

Sadly since then we’ve lost Carrie Fisher who was not only a screen Princess but someone who helped to change social stigmas surrounding mental health difficulties with her wit and vulnerable honesty. We miss you Carrie, RIP.

I’d like to dedicate this release to the memory of Carrie Fisher.

“Lawnmower” – Music Video out today

Today my latest video “Lawnmower” is set loose on the world. It stars Amy Walton who is the same person you can hear singing on the record. Amy is a talented jazz singer currently living near me in London. I was very excited when she confirmed her interest in starring in this video with me. Thanks AMY!

Amy Crankshaw-Luyendijk did our make-up, arranged the props and filmed the entire video.

I’ve had this idea for a long time now and am extremely happy with how it’s turned out.

 

This is the title song from my latest EP “The Lawnmower EP” which is avaiable on Spotify and Apple Music / Itunes at the links below:

BUY ON ITUNES OR STREAM ON APPLE MUSIC: https://geo.itunes.apple.com/us/album…
SPOTIFY: https://play.spotify.com/album/1F3Ifl…

Both the video and the song are rich in Genesis references and themes. It is about us wrestling for our place in the cosmos and working out how we fit in. This is specifically my experience of the struggle but I’m sure you can relate.

If you are based in London, make sure to come down to the George Tavern (E1 0LA) for the official launch party and gig! I have a drummer joining me on stage for this one and it’s going to be huge.

If you digg the stuff I’m making and would like to help in anyway then the best ways to help are:

1. share my stuff passionately on your social media platforms,

2. send emails, and messages to your friends with the songs.

3. give me cash so I can buy a new computer and keep this stuff coming! 😉

LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!
