About

I'm a mediocre procrastinating disillusioned perfectionist with delusions of grandeur. I like ukulele, food, photography and social media marketing. My favourite colour is yellow.

I'm all over the internet:

Some light and breezy music from Sunday morning. This is a song I’ve been wanting to do a cover of for ages, and I’ve finally set up my home office/music making hub, so here you go.

I couldn’t leave #Hawaii without a new #ukulele… Right? And certainly not without a #koaloha…  (at Bob’s Ukulele)

New FiftyNinety song! 

Last night I was enjoying a gin (or two) while writing… And came up with a wonderfully morose gin song. I’d only had two, but apparently it’s quite evident (to me at least) the kind of song that I write when drinking gin.

Tonight it’s ready for you to listen to…

Hmmm I wonder who her trainer is?

Is that what I was missing then, training? Next time then… ;)

Feel free to join in the Songwriting madness fun over at fiftyninety.fawmers.org! 

Anyone guess what movie it’s inspired by?

50/90 2: Heartbreaker - working

So… Still frustrated, but hoping someone might be able to help? 

Song #2 is tentatively titled “Heartbreaker”. I have a ukulele-backing loop (listen here http://fiftyninety.fawmers.org/song/1792), and I have lyrics, but I don’t like the melodies.

Ideas welcome. 

Lyrics: 

How about her

That little heartbreaker

Starving on her own

Searching the room for

What’s on offer

Where her signals show

Steady now

You’re flaunting some

That crimson devil’ll

Be gone by dawn

Her eyes’ll catch you

Oh how they’ll trap you

Waiting for their return

You’ll lose the moment

Damn the present

To soothe that craving burn

Hold on tightly

Here she comes

Your devil darling

Lose til dawn

Take my soul to keep

As I make my heavenly deal

Watch me all through the night

she’ll keep me safe til morning light

Heart breaker roll over
