I recently recorded a track for James Loynes and Sally Deford called ‘A Believers Prayer’. The accompaniment was originally Piano and I was given complete freedom to interpret it for Guitar. The resultant track is on James’ How Can I Keep From Singing CD. After doing my bit it was handed over to James & Sally who then changed the arrangement slightly so that it blended better with the CD release. I have their permission to let my fans hear the original interpretation. All instruments played by me – here it is:
A Believers Prayer
I’ve done the backing tracks for several of James’ songs – this is one of my favourites:
An Angel To Watch Over Me
James Donaldson is my oldest musical buddy. We gigged and played together – starting whilst I was at school and up until James moved to Scotland. A great singer and an accomplished songwriter he’s well worth a listen at:
After doing a Gig at Thwaites Empire Theatre in Blackburn, I struck up a conversation with Jim Bowen and casually mentioned doing a DVD with him. He liked the idea and I produced the DVD shown above. It was an interesting project to do.
