I have signed with Challenge Records, who will release my
new album later this year. It is to be called EVER
OPEN DOOR. It’s an album of ballads performed by
me, on tenor saxophone and clarinet, The Singh String Quartet,
and John Ellis on Hammond organ. We recorded a concert
at the Storyhouse Theatre, Chester, UK in July 2019 and stayed another
day recording without the audience. All the recordings are “live”
either with or without the audience. The arrangements are by Andy
Scott, who also wrote three of the tunes, one with me.
We play Ever Open Door by Rick Davies and If Everyone was Listening by Roger Hodgson, along with another twelve tear-jerkers. The recording engineer is Paul Allen assisted by Chris Rundell.
The first single is The Ballad Of The Sad Young Men — released on May 22nd 2020
