Happy Christmas 2018...


Happy Christmas 2018...


Winding up 2018 and looking ahead to 2019 I can say that the year has finished on a good note and 2019 provides a new challenge which is to create something new and better than anything I have done thus far musically...

2018 has been truly experimental in the sense of having to completely rebuild my recording gear and learning how to get a good sound out of equipment and software that I had never previously used...

The final album 'Good News' along with the single from the album 'Just Like Yesterday' both got really good independent reviews which can be found on the Media Page all of which have given me the creative energy to write something very special for 2019...

Sales through online stores have been affected by streaming and unfortunately you have to be on streaming sites to connect with an ever increasing online audience and I'm sure I am not the only artist who thinks streaming sites need to actually pay a realistic price for the music they are on-selling to their customers... perhaps 2019 will see a turn around in those figures particularly as there are a number of law suits muted by some of the bigger players in the music industry...

However, if you are like me and prefer to buy tracks all of my albums are available for sale through iTunes Amazon and Google Play and for those of you that still remember the instrumental material I started out writing and performing all those years ago check out Craig Payne's Shadows and you never know there may be a follow up sometime in the future...

On a personal not I would like to wish everyone a 'Happy Christmas' and a great 'New Year' and I look forward to coming back in 2019 with a new look and some big sounds...

Regards...
