February 2012
Just spent a great afternoon at Ronnie Wood's house recording his guitar parts for an album I'm producing. We got some great takes, and it was a real pleasure to work with such a legend. A very special day!

I've just heard that the single I produced for Tracie Hunter & Joe Elliott "Junkman" has hit the billboard US Classic rock charts.. the hit's just keep rolling out of CCP!!

January 2012
I'm currently putting the finishing touches to an EP for a very talented young London artist called Joshy Connor. This guy is a friend of Ed Sheeran, and his music is from a similar stable. Could be a name to look out for this year..

November 2011
Spent an amazing afternoon yesterday with one of my musical hero's, Nile Rodgers. At one point I was chatting guitars with him, and he told me he had around 450 guitars in his collection!

Also started work on the new long awaited Quireboys album. Busy Busy busy!!

I've taken a break from other peoples work for a few weeks to finish off my own forthcoming album. It's now pretty much finished barring checking mixes and mastering. I've been assisted with mix and production duties on 2 of the tracks by Tom Welham (Thirteen Senses / Gabriella Cilmi), I don't mind saying that I think we've created something amazing. We shot the video for the first single 'America' last weekend. The single is released Mon 5th Sept, and the album entitled 'Airways Mansions' follows on 17th October.

July 2011
I'm currently working on an album of un released re-recordings of one of the UK's most influential artists and songwriters. That's all I can say for now, except I've already started working with some of the legends that will be appearing on it, including Simon Kirke (free) & SImon Hanson (Squeeze) on drums, Andy Fraser (free) on bass, and none other than Ronnie Wood to come among others!! Really quite exciting! Updates to follow..

Australian artist Trysette's new album is now in the mixing stages, and is sounding very cool indeed. It's kind of a mix of Sheryl Crow and Kylie.. Fans of a good short and sweet pop record should track it down. Should be released late summer / Autumn.

In other news: I've also just finished producing a version of a well known AC/DC song recorded by The Quireboys. This is for a comemorative CD that will be given away with the May edition of Classic Rock magazine. All I can say is we've done the song justice.. Rock n Roll baby!

We're all very excited about this project.. going to be an amazing LP!!

Also been doing alot more work for S1songs, they publish Sheryl Crow's catalogue (Amongst others - Faith Hill etc). I've been producing some cover versions of her back catalouge for use in TV / Radio advertising. For the Sheryl Crow sound-a-like vocals we've been using the very talented Cherry Lee Mewis (
