It’s with a justifiable sense of pride that I can announce the release of my new album on my own Lucid Recordings imprint as of the 29th September.
It’s a double album called ‘Paracosmic’, and initially is only going to be available to those of you who got involved with the crowdfunding campaign.
I believe that this record is one of my strongest to date, and it seems churlish not to release it to the general public at a later date, so the plan is to roll this out with a proper press and promotional campaign towards the middle of next year. It’ll then be available on limited edition vinyl and CD in all good record shops, and online. Watch this space for news.

It’s a peculiar one – with anything creative, especially when you’re of an artistic bent yourself, one tends to have periods of self-doubt which get in the way of the whole process of putting something new together. Also, if you’re solely responsible for the promotional side of your work, then it’s an even harder slog. 2017 has been pretty full on – I’ve really neglected my art, due to external pressures, which you can read more about here.
However, as I write this, I’m in Greece, and it’s given me the physical distance that I needed to analyse and reflect; as a result of this, I have some definite ideas to push my canon of work forward.
Even after all these years of plugging away, I still believe that the filmic, widescreen qualities of my work deserves a wider audience, and I’m determined to work upon this premise to ensure that it gets out there, somehow.
Ultimately, it’s all about having confidence in what you do, ain’t it…
