Hey There DPD (parody)

17/10/2018

I’ve had a nightmare few days thanks to DPD. I upgraded my iPhone over the phone the other day and they said they’d send it out via post. I got a text from them saying it would be delivered Friday, so I worked from home that day. Then on Friday I got a text saying…

Dead Good Band

17/10/2018

A while ago, I told my friend Laura I wanted to be buried with my ukulele in case I got bored when I died. She said she’d make sure she was buried with her guitar near me so we could jam. Thus the Dead Good Band was born. This is my attempt at a halloween…

I originally wrote this song on the ukulele, but having recently bought a guitar, I thought I’d try and arrange it for guitar to get a bit of a fuller sound. The song is about those times when you get a song stuck in your head and you haven’t a clue who what it’s called,…

Superstitious Song

Variations on a kids TV theme

I Am Falling

This was the second song I wrote on the ukulele, back when I was about 17.

Easter Song

31/03/2018

An easter song I wrote with my good friend Laura.

Taking it all the wrong way

18/03/2018

I rarely write songs that are autobiographical or true, but this one is. Kind of. A little bit. I often get very paranoid and over analyse the slightest of compliments, so that’s what my latest song is about. Enjoy!

Girl of my dreams

18/02/2018

If my imagination creates the perfect girl for me, then how can anyone in real life compete? That’s what this song is about.
