I’m excited to be able to share another song video to showcase some of what’s coming on the album I’m currently working on. This one’s called ‘Rejoice My Soul’ and is taken straight from Philippians 4. As I say in the video below, I love writing songs straight from Scripture as it makes for good … More New Song taster – ‘Rejoice My Soul’
I’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign! Until 21 September, you have the opportunity to help me reach a funding goal of £2,500 to produce an album of fresh songs handcrafted for personal and corporate worship.

I’m looking forward to launching (the hard copies of) my new EP ‘Where I Am Free’ this evening. As part of the time I’m hoping to read a couple of pieces of psalm-writing (or rather rewriting) that I’ve done lately. One is based on Psalm 139 which I posted recently. The other is based on … More Who Am I? (My take on Psalm 8)
