It’s hard to believe that it’s been thirteen years since my last solo album, “Traveller”, was released. I have wanted to record another album for a long time now but many things have gotten in the way. The biggest obstacle has been myself. Maybe I lost confidence in my writing skills? Maybe I got bogged down with other projects and tours? Maybe I watch too much Netflix? I’m not certain what the big holdup was. I think I was a little bit afraid to set that big wheel in motion again. A lot of things have to happen before you finally get that small plastic disc in your hands.
I have been planning “Myths, Legends & Lies” for a very long time. Those of you who know me will know that with every album I release, either on my own or with Tyketto, there is always a song or two that is a little left of center of the aor melodic rock I am known for. Over the years I have written dozens of these strange and wonderful creatures that I have come to regard as my orphans, because it’s tough to find a home for them. My dream was to, one day, round them all up and put them in a house together. And here we are.
“Myths, Legends & Lies” is about storytelling. It chronicles my travels through the world, both real and imagined and it’s populated by Gods and heroes, kings and derelicts, gun slingers and card sharps, sailors and cyborgs all telling their tales of life, injustice, love and murder.
It’s acoustic, it’s electric, it’s blues, it’s rock, it’s cinematic, it’s eclectic. I’m so excited that I finally get to share it with you.
Recording started on January 26th, 2019 in a quiet little studio in Wales.
The album was released in June 2019 which was followed by a successful UK and European Tour. The Shadow Of King John was the first single which also has a video
The second single is due at the end of March 2020 and will be Kelly’s Gone, a video will be released for this in due course.
The album is available in my website shop in CD and Vinyl format and I even have a patch for your jacket branded with the Myths, Legends and Lies logo.
Keep checking back, there is more to come!
