A song a week

In an effort to force himself to work harder at writing songs, Simon has recently launched a blog called “a song a week (every week for a year)”, where each week he writes and posts a brand new song. The first few songs are up and he’s hard at work creating the next one. Local producer Chris Tuck has got involved, ensuring studio-quality recording of each week’s song. Visit, where you can listen to the songs and sign up to receive email notifications of each week’s new song.

New video

Our first official video for the new album is getting some heavy traffic on youtube. Produced by Ross Campbell, filmed in Simon’s kitchen, here’sAm I the Worm?
