Makers of Love Blog

 I write an album every year and have done so for many years. Music shuts me away in a room from where it will force me to find new ways to become free. And that shall be the expression. As a young man I had seen the poets and chalked my best upon the toilet walls alongside theirs. As I dissolved my youth, I wrote in defiance of any culture that binds us together to plunder our pockets and empty out our dreams. I was a brat with a guitar and an inner poet off the leash. But I turned fifty and my children started leaving. And it was from here that I wrote the ‘Makers of Love’ and it felt like falling in love from a great height.

And now after all these years of writing songs, this is what I have learned. Writing songs is easy, which is why there are so many; writing fine words is difficult, which is why there are so few.

So I submit this album ‘Makers of Love’ to the canon of my work.

We Came This Far

Politics for this songwriter is an ugly mouthful of a word. It has no poetry, no beauty, no connotation other than that which it is. To use the word politics in song is to usher in hate and fix the song to it. Politics inspires not love but mistrust. We have been sold to it, not convinced by it.

This film is a beautiful little reminder of just how wonderful humanity can be.
