In January 2006 I released my debut album, 'One Way Ticket'. It was independently financed and released, recording starting in April 2004 and finishing by the end of 2005. Several years later, in 2018, I released an acoustic version of the album entitled 'One Way Ticket (Travelling Lighter)'.

You can purchase both albums digitally from Bandcamp:

Summer of 2019, a typical day on the streets of Edinburgh playing would be something like this - minus the heavy rain! If I received a pound for every passerby who filmed me I'd be a rich man so it was nice to turn the tables that day! That year I played so much, sometimes 3 times a day doing 2 hour sets. The fireworks at the end were part of the Edinburgh Fringe finishing up.

I grew up in the south of Edinburgh in a block of high-rise flats in a council estate during the 80s and 90s. Up until the 1950s I think it was mainly farmland and in the 1960s three high-rise flats were built. I lived on the 7th floor before the dampness got so bad the council moved us down to the 2nd floor, where eventually dampness became a problem there also. In 2005 they began the process of demolishing these flats due to dampness, heating and structural problems. I had already moved out in 2004 but my mother and brother lived there up until they were demolished.

This short film was shown on the National Geographic channel apparently and a DVD copy was sent out to all the residents of the flats so I'm uploading it to give a glimpse of my background and preserve a little Edinburgh history. The flat they focus on in the film is not the one I lived in but it was pretty much the same experience for all three flats.

I have reasonably fond memories of living there in the 80s (we moved in around 1984-5) but from the 90s onwards it was not so pleasant and I was certainly glad to move out and move on in 2004. The area I moved to, Morningside, was luxury in comparison!

I wrote all the songs for the One Way Ticket album in these flats and many others but recorded the album mostly in Morningside.

Some food and coffee at the fire, with a bit of Music, which was then rained off.
Human beings are no different to the trees and plants and animals around us. We come from Mother Earth, we are cells of Mother Earth and have the same wisdom and intelligence running through us. We don't need any artificial intelligence. No A.I. or transhumanism bullshit can conquer that intelligence. All the so-called "super-human" things they are promising with that are already so naturally. Technology is great for certain things but it is meant to serve us, it can never better the human spirit and wisdom.
Music and Nature Forever!!!

Mother Nature's Son (The Beatles) - 08:01

So here in Scotland, they've banned us from meeting indoors with our family and friends. So outside it has to be - you can always find the joy somewhere no matter how much they try to take it away - and a chance to try out our fire cooking skills. Something we've never done before and I haven't lit fires since I was a child - in those days it was usually with household furniture people threw away ūüėŹ
