Demo Albums

or is it albums of demos? Either way I’ve decided to begin compiling/curating my audio archives. You can download the first one right here

Home Truths 2016

The download includes 16 songs ranging from metal guitar instrumentals, political songs, style parodies, a song about York, a love song for my wife, a song called biscuit that’s not about biscuits and lots more. There’s also chord sheet pdfs for most songs and even a few pages of guitar TAB. Enjoy.

Oh and you can still access individual songs on the Song Vault page

U.A.D.O.R.

Here’s a little tune I wrote with 11 year old pupils Lauren and Henry. We deconstructed the chords to Shawn Mendes‘ song Treat You Better and went from there. All the ‘drums’ were created in school by banging cupboards, dropping chairs and gym mats and stuff. Staple guns make ace snare drums.

So here is U.A.D.O.R. – which stands for Unicorns And Dogs On Rockets … because why not?

Download U.A.D.O.R. here
