Under the Floorboards (parody)

17/09/2018

A fun/disturbing little parody of the Drifters classic Under the Boardwalk.

Humming a Song

07/09/2018

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

13/07/2018

I’m not superstitious and, touch wood, I never will be. But I find superstitions interesting. How people change their behaviour based on irrational beliefs. I wanted to write a song around the theme, so I decided to write a song about someone who experiences loads of these superstitions all at once.

Variations on a kids TV theme

16/06/2018

I love children’s TV. I watched a lot of cartoons and shows when I was young and now I’ve started watching cartoons with my nephew, I’ve found myself revisiting some classics. A lot of the nostalgia for me lies in the theme tunes. The songs that we heard every Saturday morning that got stuck in…

I Am Falling

18/04/2018

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

I recently played an open mic night at The Actress and Bishop in Birmingham. This is the footage.

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.

A Love Song (good enough for you)

04/02/2018

This is, at the time of writing, the first and only love song I’ve ever written. I’d tried many times, but never been able to write a decent love song that was worthy of singing to a girl, but I always ended up making them silly or adding loads of jokes. So in the end…

Drop The Calories

10/12/2017

This year’s festive tune is a parody of Stop the Cavalry (by Jona Lewie) all about eating too much over Christmas. I had so much fun filming this with Mike, Laura and Shannon. A lot of it was improvised on the day. And yes, it was very cold lying in the snow, but I really…

Jackie (parody of Happy)

A parody of Happy by Pharrell Williams about the Doctor Who character Jackie Tyler.
