Need a gift for a gifted musician?
I'm a singer songwriter, made my first L.P. in 1975, Kid In A Big World, which was largely ignored at the time, made a couple more albums for CBS which went unreleased, a few more singles through the late '70s and early '80s, and then just got on with life as you do, writing and recording when the whim or friends took me, and also had a good time A & R'ing albums for other artists. In 2000 I 'retired' to Pembrokeshire and just when I thought it was all second hand bookshops and a belated career in flower arranging, in 2003 RPM reissued 'Kid' to the kind of welcome and acclaim I never thought possible, then my two unreleased '70s albums followed in 2004 and 2005. The renewed interest in my music has re-started my career. The muse I thought was lost forever is smiling and seems happy to have me back.
In September 2012 I released my album, "You Shall Go To The Ball!" featuring a new re-approaching of some of my songs from the 1970s which only ever reached demo stage back then, but which I have always wanted to 'dress' appropriately. If you visit my YouTube channel www.youtube.com/kidinabigworld you will find videos there to accompany each track on the album, plus many more from my other albums.
