The world is struggling as one with COVID-19. It is one of the great equalizers of our time. If anyone ever doubted how dependent all human kind is upon each other, COVID-19 has made it as clear as the sun itself.

I know that our societies, and governments will have much to learn and to take responsibility for when this crisis has subsided. I'm looking forward to being a part of that re-birth, rebuilding, and renewal in the form of new thoughts, new laws, new precautions and new music.
Be safe, observe social distancing, support each and help each other and we will sing, dance and rock together again.
BLOG 360 SUSPLOSIONS OF NEWS!
So here's my deal with the blog. The blog is for people who really want to "go in". By that I mean, in this section, I go into details and really tell the story of whatever's happening. If you see an interesting topic and you feel like you don’t have time to read, I totally get it. Just go to my Facebook feed at the bottom of this page and the same topics will be there with the same subject headings and dates, in a super condensed version. I know... it's all about the time management.
MUSIC - Releases re-imagined
I love remixes. Ever since the 90's when the remix really came into it's own, I've been a fan. When I get the chance to hand over one of my songs to another producer to re-imagine, I welcome it. You just never know what they'll bring to it and the song lives another life. I've posted a two songs below in their original versions, Brooce Swayne and Summer Sky, along with their remixes by two seriously gifted producers, Darren Solomon and Matt Henderson. I thought while I was at it, I would share the original version of Screaming Headless Torsos’ Running Black Water from our 2014 album, Code Red along with the new live version featuring special guest Hiromi on piano released in July 2017. Songs re-imagined.
