Last year I released 2 albums "Atomic Hypnosis" (a high concept musical and vocal extravaganza) and "Just Chilling for Christmas This Year" (chill out arrangements of old Christmas hymns plus 3 original tracks.)

Thanks for stopping by!

The Strange Man

That night I fell asleep and slipped into a dream
Caught the sight of a flickering light
The start of it it seemed
The things I do every day played the starring role
I now believe that this was a test
To see if I had a soul

Took place back home
The land I know
The dream so clear
The dream I fear

Trying to make the top of the hill
The reason I don't know why
The winding road I knew as a child looked the same to me
I had to cross the rickety bridge to get where I wanted to go
Then appeared the strange man who questioned my destiny

I asked the man
If I could cross
He spoke "go on"
I suddenly felt lost

As I crossed I thought of the strange man
With a thundering voice

The light blinding me
As my foot touched the ground
The heat burning me
The strange man laughing
