Acoustic duo - ballads, covers and folk
I have written a song based on the short story ‘Goodbye’ written by my Leeford Village co-author, Jon Markes.
Jon and I collaborated with the musician / producer, Bruford Low, to make a recording of the song, ‘Did you think of me’. I provided the vocals and played acoustic guitar, Jon played bass guitar, with Bruford on keyboards / percussion.
The song can be listened to below and the story can be read on Youtube here
The acoustic version of 'Did you think of me' is on ‘Second Chance songs' here
