Album Description

Writing this new album, 'Original Love' is my creative response to journeys in Central and South America. A few years back my life changed dramatically, My band Sirius B, my partnership, my home and the recording studio in it....all came to an end. Set adrift on a new continent I discovered new ways of being and different ways of looking at our world. Life isn't always straight lines; taking time to enjoy the 'pura vida': respecting people from all countries and walks of life. The muse returned through these songs, they are the reflection of the joy, inspiration and healing that I rediscovered. I returned home with nothing but this music.I passionately believe in the miraculous power of each of us to overcome the dark difficult stuff that enters our lives, physical, mental, political.... I'm trying to focus on the light. And the title tells you where I'm coming from! I formed my new group Global Wave on my return to the UK. The wave part is inspired by my love of surfing; music is a wave form; we all are!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
