p>This week I am in beautiful Cannes to visit the MIDEM Music Market event, I understand that this year there will be over 9,000 music industry pros from a multitude of countries. The good news with music right now is the on-line sales, where in the past CD’s sold via shops and later supermarkets, today on-line sales are making it possible for even small independents to sell music. 

And it’s not just CD’s, we are talking Digital for your Ipod and Mobile and more.

I will post a full report on my return later this week and in the meantime you may like to visit theofficial MIDEM site to see for yourself WHY 9,000 people meet in CANNES in January!

Paris in October Enjoy

Inspired during a very romantic trip to Paris, France in October 2004 (yes it’s taken me sometime to create the demo). I find Paris very inspiring and conductive location to creating love songs. I hope when you listen, you too will imagine the wonder of Paris.

The One For Me – Inspired Ballad

Sometimes you kiss a frog and you think that the man who comes out is your prince. Sometimes he really is, but in my case, the man this song was written for didn’t stand the test of time.

Nevertheless, it was a great night in Colne, Lancashire, at a jam session in a house full of old hippies. Plenty of them in Colne, some of them the best friends I ever had, great characters. The air was thick…of music, everybody was in great spirits, the other kind of spirits were flowing as well, so we  were making great music together. My friends were extremely versatile musically and we had a drummer, lots of guitars, african bongos and of course, me on the keyboard.

Last night I had the pleasure to visit the Plough Inn in Wood Street Walthamstow London E17, for a blues jam.

As you would expect it was a very layed back session, starts at 9pm with the house blues band playing some great blues numbers, after the interval guests can play.

If you are into blues like me the Plough is well worth a visit.

It’s to do with the time when I was madly in love with this guy who lived in London. The problem was – I lived in Lancashire, so every time I came to see him in London I had to travel on the Underground to get to him. You can imagince the sheer excitement coming up – it seemed the train was travelling at snail speed, I couldn’t wait to meet him, anticipating the delights of the week end will be.
