‘The Music of the Stars’ (2024) 

Album of songs & music from musical inspired by ‘The Little Prince’

Recorded at ‘Blue Moon Rec Studio’ in Florence, Italy 

‘The Music of the Stars’ album is a musical inspired by ‘The Little Prince’ by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. An album of 22 songs & musical pieces with a mixture of styles from classical chamber music to pop-rock as well as music hall numbers. Arrangements for flute, clarinet, oboe and cello as well as piano ballads and jazz infused pieces reflect the musical journey. 

The second single (& video) ‘Time to leave’ is an atmospheric and pulsating retro 60s inspired keyboard song with richly arranged vocal parts that create a hopeful drive and vision. 

The first single & video  ‘Time to Blossom’ (released on December 5th 2023). It has elements of dark melancholy combined with uplifting choruses, as reflected in the style of Peter Gabriel.


‘From Afar’ (2024)  ‘La Marti’ with SoundZanobi

Co-written: Peter Dulborough and ‘La Marti’ (Martina Magionami) 

Recorded: ‘Blue Moon Rec Studio’ with ‘La Marti’ and SoundZanobi

Special thanks to: La Marti (vox and guitars), Carlo Gardenti (bass) and Leonardo Foggi (drums).

The Ancient Greek believed the earth was the centre of the universe and the planets revolved around it creating a divine music. This ‘musica universalis’ or ‘music of the spheres’ couldn’t be heard by mortals on earth, but only by immortal souls. 

This gave me the idea for a metaphor for creativity. Inspiration is unpredictable and can never be forced. It’s like hearing the ‘music of the spheres’ for a moment – then it’s gone! Divine music revealed ‘from afar’ for few brief seconds before it evaporates into the night sky. As it falls effortlessly to the ground, we need to catch it and not let it escape into thin air. This inspiration needs our response, or it passes us by. We need to act upon it and use this precious gift, or risk losing it forever.

I wrote ‘From Afar’ with La Marti and it was recorded with SoundZanobi. It became an experiment in sound and inspiration in the studio. I enjoyed setting the scene with the piano and organ moods. La Marti was inspired in creating a beautiful tapestry of guitars and sublime vocals that glide effortlessly through the skies with starry assurance in a moving and mesmerizing performance.

‘The Fixer’ (2022)

Recorded at ‘Blue Moon Rec Studio’ in Florence, Italy

A tight EP of six songs on the theme of understanding emotions and being in touch with our feelings. Elements of jazz shine through the piano on tracks like ‘Heading for the Shore’ while ballads ‘Shooting Star’ and ‘As the Sun sets now’ have more classic undertones and contrast to indie bops of ‘The Fixer’ and ‘Pressure Cooker’.

A collection of studio and live recordings from a different projects available on SoundCloud  link

Fire and Light / Where the Pole Star lies (Single) 2014

‘Jigsaw’ CD (collection of 11 studio and live recordings from 2006-2009)

‘The Sunset at Dawn’ A brilliant arrangement and orchestration by my old school mate Colin Shaw.

‘The Tide’ A metaphor for love that seems at times to be disappearing on the outgoing flow. As we stand on the shoreline looking out to sea, we feel the pain of love leaving us. However, although the tide is going out, it never takes our love. 

‘Jigsaw’ is a song that links this collection together. Recorded in Devon with classic analogue technology. On the inset cover of the Jigsaw CD I wrote: “To listen to someone is a gift. Like patiently putting back the pieces of a broken jigsaw puzzle. Scattered emotions become whole, and without even noticing, through patient listening, vision is restored. Songs and music have the same effect, as our scattered emotions are restored, and the jigsaw puzzle is remade”.
