Hi Les. I've got some new songs uploaded. Visit my page when you get the time. I'd like to hear your comment on them.

Thanks Les. I did listen to Dare we Dream, and I liked that too. I will listen to the rest off them later. I will post more music myself, as soon as I get around to it.

Hey Les.  I'll take 'pretty interesting' as a compliment!  Sorry for the slow response, haven't checked out this site in ages!

I can't remember where the video came was an old school project from many years ago. 

I went to Dallas/Fort Worth last year with my american buddy who studies medicine, it was very very hot!!  Enjoyed Fort Worth though, some really interesting bars.

Hi Les

Thanks for your reply, I have been busy writing songs but now need to record & upload them to the Composers Forum, I only play guitar but want to add other instruments & find the time to get to a recording studio.

I like your work Les & I have just watched the animation short which works very well.

Thank you! Anything of mine that will be performed & recorded live will assuredly be a Steinway (varying sizes, I suppose), since that we have at my college.

Honestly, everything with piano here (with the exception of "Wonder and Worry") were done in Logic - I just pick a piano sound already in the bank that most matches the style I'm going for (bright, dark, etc); from there, I usually tweak it with compression, reverb / space design, etc to get the more specific sound I'm looking to achieve. I'm glad you like how it sounds!

How ya doing Les, nice to meetcha! You're quite a guitar picker, loved the tone of Hand Over Fist, wish I could play like that :)
