Over the past few years plans I’ve made have generally been thwarted by events beyond my control: unexpected bereavements, serious illness etc. The latest, a global pandemic has resulted in yet more abandoned plans (lost commissions, cancelled live performances etc) As an independent musician, it has hit me hard.

With no end in sight, I’ve chosen to focus my energies on new music projects (including my recently released albums ‘Fisher Of Men’ and ‘Between The Dream And The Waking… …There Is Hope’) and also on exploring my extensive archives. Over the past few months I have rediscovered an extraordinary amount of unreleased material: demos, remixes, ideas jotted on scraps of sheet music, unfinished recordings, unreleased songs etc.

My plan is to release as much of this material as possible over the coming months & years. I’m working on pulling the material together into a series of coherent albums, with complimentary material grouped together for a more cohesive listening experience.

The project is entitled ‘Remnants Of A Fractured Host’. Volume One ‘The Fear Inside’ focuses on an industrial/melodic noise sound-world with plenty of distortion and deep-diving melodies.
