STEVIE, MAYA & SUNNY
After many years of musical collaboration in one form or another I am extremely happy and excited to be birthing a new project that is very close to my heart with my very dear friends Stevie P and Maya Love, seen here with with instrumental support from Helen Brock on Fiddle. Stevie, Maya and I are all songwriters and keen harmony singers and It’s been a joy to share our songs with one another and support each others musical expression in this way. What seems to be emerging is a kind of folky spiritual roots musical with lush three part vocal harmonies. So much fun!
SUNNY & ED DAVIDSON
The Davidson brothers released their double A side singles “Holy Holy” and “Love Is Our Religion” on April 30th 2017. These are the first of many new songs currently in the pipelines and the album is on the way.
'SOULROCKER' EUROPEAN TOUR with MICHAEL FRANTI
Recently I’ve had the opportunity to work with some really inspiring people, one of whom was Michael Franti when I joined him for seven dates on the European leg of his world ‘Soulrocker” tour.
DEBUT SOLO SINGLE MIXED by NICK MANASSEH
I’ve also been very fortunate to have had my first solo single mixed and mastered by ace reggae producer Nick Manasseh.
After a brief sabatical it appears that Celtech, brain child of the brothers Davidson, may be rolling into action again, with plans for a new and highly interactive aproach to both recording and performing. Watch this space.
With their fourth album on the way, a new single and video in the pipelines and a re-vamped line up Dragonsfly are set to cement their credentials as the go-to band for funky eastern folk fusion enthusiasts. I’ll have a couple of tunes and at least one song on the new album.
THE NIGHT DANCE
Last but by no means least; a deep source of inspiration in my journey through life. The night dance is a tradition initiated by the Native Americans in the late nineteenth century. It was an attempt to appeal to Spirit for salvation in face of an increasingly brutal colonialism, by dancing for five consecutive days. At least 150 of them were slaughtered as they peacefully danced. The dance goes on today in many places in the world and I am deeply honoured to have the opportunity to participate in this extraordinary ritual and to serve the people through my music. In recent years I have sung and played in the orchestra for the dance in the mountains of Spain and Israel and I will be continuing my work there this year.
