Music

Looking for new, unique and inspirational music from Scotland? 

My songs are a mix of light rock and folk, and reflect Scottish scenery as well as historic events.

The songs featured on this page were written a few years ago. Some of them were sung live on television and radio as well as in various venues around Scotland. Some of the lyrics also occasionally feature in my books “Free as the Wind” and “Fishing for Submarines”

Airplay

September 2018 – Free as the Wind played on Radio 6 International (Soundwave), August 2018 – Island Lullaby played on Lionheart Radio, 2017 – Island Lullaby, Free as the Wind and Safe and Sound played on North Highland Radio. Previous airplay, especially for new Burns music, featured on World Service, as well as various BBC Scotland programmes – Robert Burns play page HERE

    

The songs below (just a few of those I have written) are demo quality only but I hope they will inspire musicians, singers, recording companies and recording studios to to consider how they might be able to arrange or record one or more of them in line with their own personal style or requirement.

Also see video below showcasing some of my songs.

Island Lullaby (soft sounds of a Hebridean island at the end of the day)

 

Safe and Sound (about the aftermath of the Battle of Culloden)

 

Free as the Wind (a celebration of the Scottish outdoors and scenery)

 

The Lord of the Isles (birlinns, galleys, and clan warfare)

 

The Witch of Kintyre (a fast-moving mystical song)
