about

Cosmic Soul is an album featuring 14 songs based around the theme of love, wonder and the circle of life. For the majority of my recording career i have followed in the footsteps of my folk music idols such as Woody Guthrie, Tim Hardin, Bob Dylan, Derroll Adams and Donovan and used minimal production on past works, however Cosmic Soul brings songs both old and new into life with added production, such as Drums, Bass, Piano, Organ and Strings.

The album features the single 'Shine Your Love' which was released on digital services on the 7th of January 2014.

Track Name: Cosmic Blues
well, well, well what is that i see?
well, well, well what is that i see?
there's a strange light shining and it's shining for me

it's not the dawn, nor is it the dusk
it's not the dawn, nor is it the dusk
the time of day escapes me as i look to the light

am i dying, or am i dead?
am i dying, or am i dead?
i need to lay down, rest my weary head

the sun and moon float side by side
the sun and moon float side by side
the power of creation as i face the light

i feel like i'm lost, finding my way
free from time, floating free
shine great light, shine for me

well, well, well what happened to me?
well, well, well what happened to me?
i feel like i've been through birth and death

the light was a blessing
the light was a blessing
it shone into my soul, now i've seen the light

i awoke with an understanding
i awoke with an understanding
that i've gotta live, there's no second time around

on i go through the universe
on i go through the universe
carrying my soul before it heads to the light

the moment i'm in is my divinity
flowing within me the feeling of zen
i know i am bound, bound to the light
Track Name: Come To Love
there is a shining light
beyond the world and our own minds
it is buried deep within
take the time to look inside

the road of life can be long and rough
sometimes you feel like you've had enough
but don't worry, please be strong
there's an answer to your problems

come to love
come to love
come to love

we all need a guide in life
to help us do what is right
we all worry and we all love
up is down and down is up

so let go of the blues
play the world a sunshine tune
give out what you need back
let karma take command

come to love
come to love
come to love
come to love
come to love
come to love
Track Name: Falling Horizons
falling horizons are tumbling around me
the sky is falling, nothing is around me
my spirit is all there is, distance is fading
i am nowhere, maybe all around
what happened to my illusion of reality?

falling horizons are tumbling around me
the sky is falling, nothing is around me
will there be tomorrow, will the sunrise?
is this a moment, or eternity?
what happened to my illusion of reality?

what happened to my illusion of reality?

falling horizons are tumbling around me
the sky is falling, nothing is around me
so where do i go now? my feet have nowhere to take me
nowhere to settle down, nowhere to sleep
what happened to my illusion of reality?

falling horizons are tumbling around me
the sky is falling, nothing is around me
falling horizons are tumbling around me
the sky is falling, nothing is around me
what happened to my illusion of reality?
Track Name: She's Guided By The Stars
she'll sit on the beach under the suns fall and rise
and she'll be fine for she is guided by the stars
under sunshine or rain her spirit is the same
to do her best with the day she is blessed, guided by the stars

and who wouldn't love to love her?
this girl unlike another
who is running free

her soul is there to see, painted on her body
she will travel far, far and wide, guided by the stars
with her sunglasses on she'll drive to the sun
watch it set in the sea, like poetry, guided by the stars

and who wouldn't love to love her?
this girl unlike another
who is running free

she is a natural girl, with a smile to light your world
i know she will make her dreams come true, guided by the stars
she has tales to tell, everyone wishes her well
i wonder what her tomorrows will bring? guided by the stars

and who wouldn't love to love her?
this girl unlike another
who is running free

and who wouldn't love to love her?
this girl unlike another
who is running free
Track Name: You Bring The Sun Round
i don't know where the world will lead me
or what happened in days gone by
i know nothing lasts forever
but i believe in eternity

should the rain come falling
should the music cease to play
should the stars stop shining
i'll do my best to make it ok

you bring the sun round
i'll break the cloud
you bring the round
we'll make a better day

tomorrow is a day unwritten
we could make it anything we want to
we could make peace on earth
and i believe i could with you

yesterday was what it was
today is what it will be
the world is open to anything
so lets create a better day

you bring the sun round
i'll break the cloud
you bring the round
we'll make a better day

tomorrow is a day unwritten
we could make it anything we want to
we could make peace on earth
and i believe i could with you

you bring the sun round
i'll break the cloud
you bring the round
we'll make a better day

you bring the sun round
i'll break the cloud
you bring the round
we'll make a better day

you bring the sun round
i'll break the cloud
you bring the round
we'll make... a better... day
Track Name: Chasing The Sun Around The World
well i'm just a man with a head full of dreams
and my dreams won't let me sleep
so while the sky is blue, what i'm gonna do
i'm gonna chase the sun around the world

i've got nothing against the moon
but the sun plays my favourite tune
it gives me a song to sing along
i'm gonna chase the sun around the world

i'll chase it to Moscow, i'll chase it to Rome
where the sun is shining that'll be my home, that'll be my home

i don''t want to be stuck in the falling rain
or be alone on a midnight train
on a boat or on a plane
i'm gonna chase the sun around the world

in the hours of broad daylight
the world is full of sheer delights
i don't wanna see the sun set for me
i'm gonna chase the sun around the world

i'll chase it to Toronto, i'll chase is to St. Ives
where the sun is shining is where i feel alive, where i feel alive

so around and around the world i go
singing a song wherever i roam
i'll play the part of a gypsy boy
bringing you the sun in my song
bringing you the sun in my song
Track Name: Unexplained Mystery
i'm here on earth sharing a moment of forever
i wonder on the meaning, the here and the now
through darkness and light we travel our life
on a journey of the soul
and everything i know is an unexplained mystery

why do the birds soar the sky?
why does the ocean calm my mind?
through the turning years the sunshine and rain
we play our part in loves game
and everything i know is an unexplained mystery

no one knows why we're here
no one knows for sure
around the sun we go
and the years just roll on, on and on

when the sun has gone and i'm left with the moon
i can see the stars you can't see against the blue
who put them there? and what reason for?
they hang in forever being wished upon
and everything i know is an unexplained mystery

i always wanted to find the hole in the sky
to find the secret door to a world most pure
where dreams are born and peace arrives with the dawn
and the day is it's own reward
and everything i know is an unexplained mystery

no one knows why we're here
no one knows for sure
around the sun we go
and the years just roll on, on and on

i'm here on earth sharing a moment of forever
Track Name: The Fallen Stars
will you be there when the stars fall down
stand by me when they come tumbling out of the sky
we'll sit and gaze at the sight, listen to the sound
sky is torn and the stars now lay upon the ground

look at the light, bless this world
all around they lay on the land where we play
i always thought that the stars were wishes up high
but now the stars have gone, have wishes come true or not?

some will fall into the ocean tonight
when they do they'll reflect and be back by the moon
but the sad truth is the night sky is empty now
come the dawn the sun will light all of the fallen stars

bless fallen stars who feel to earth
Track Name: Wake Up Your Soul
what has happened to the world?
what has happened to mankind?
we came through the darkness
yet we ignore the light

we claim we all believe in love
yet we let fear rule our hearts
why can't we live for the joy of life
why do we kill and destroy?

i sit and watch the rising sun
dance on the waves of an endless ocean
no sound but the splash of the sea
in this moment it's clear to see

we as man need to stop and pause
look at what we're doing, adjust our course
we need to look after the earth
strive for a free and equal world

i'm sick of seeing war after war
based on the lies of religious life
we need to connect soul to soul
every life has it's worth

so take a moment during your day
to sit and to meditate
soon you will come to realise
we should live a natural way

so please wake up your soul
so please wake up your mind
try to live kindly
and look after your soul
Track Name: Falling Sunrise
there's a falling sunrise
all over the worlds sky's
in and out of my mind
the falling sunrise

the clear blue sky
in front of my eyes
the burst of light
dwindles from sight

another turn of time
in the natural rhyme
has come to go
darkness begins to show

there's a falling sunrise
all over the worlds sky's
in and out of my mind
the falling sunrise

birds leave the sky
along with the light
wind rests in the trees
until morning is seen

calmness is inside
my once hectic mind
gentle shut of my eyes
under the fading light

there's a falling sunrise
all over the worlds sky's
in and out of my mind
the falling sunrise

there's a falling sunrise
all over the worlds sky's
in and out of my mind
the falling sunrise

there's a falling sunrise
Track Name: The Endless Lullaby (Coming Through The Light)
sleep in crescent moon while stars sing the tune
of all the longest dreams, the endless lullaby
you will be sent to rest, forget your past quests
as you shut your eyes, float freely

you'll sleep for what seems countless nights and days
but you'll soon hear the awakening tune
one day you will awake to a different world and place
a whole new life, the rebirth of your mind

coming through the light
coming back into sight
ready for another turn
a ride on the wheel of life

so while the lullaby is sun the journey has begun
resting between time until the moment is right
so shut your eyes with ease, slip away freely
once darkness sets in the light shines again

coming through the light
coming back into sight
ready for another turn
a ride on the wheel of life

coming through the light
coming back into sight
ready for another turn
a ride on the wheel of life

coming through the light
coming back into sight
ready for...
Track Name: To Be (Tryin' To Find)
i'm tryin' to find what it is to be as i sit here under a tree
in the shade on a sunny day, watching nature sing and play
i'm tryin' to find some peace inside because the world hurts my mind
and i'll sing a song for the flowers, just to wile away the hours

i'm tryin' to find what it is to be to stay grounded yet flying free
to lose my ego, to feel no fear, to enjoy the moment while it's here
i'm tryin' to find a way in life, to remove the darkness to shine a light
to spread love, to make it clear that all we need is kindness near
Track Name: Shine Your Love
how are you today, is life treating you ok?
if not come with me and we can work it out
for you are here now, that's a wonderful thing
under the sun and moon embrace everything

come on shine your love
come on shine your love
come on shine your love
shine, shine your love

there's no guarantee we'll be here tomorrow or in coming years
but one thing we both have is life here and now
so don't be blue my friend, all roads come to an end
sure there will be rain but the sun will shine again

come on shine your love (shine your love)
come on shine your love (shine your love)
come on shine your love (shine)
shine, shine your love

come on shine your love (shine your love)
come on shine your love (shine your love)
come on shine your love (shine)
shine, shine your love

come on shine your love (shine your love)
come on shine your love (shine your love)
come on shine your love (shine)
shine, shine your love

(shine your love)
(shine your love)
(shine)
