Have just received a lovely belated Christmas surprise which I wanted to share with you all…
I’m a bit astonished and stoked to discover that my song ‘Gently’ is featured in award-winning author Jacquelyn Middleton’s new Amazon #1 best-selling novel ‘The Certainty of Chance’.
Described by Entertainment Weekly as ‘a snowy, festive romance that truly captures the magic of London at the holidays’, page 286 of the novel sees one of the main characters return home to hear ‘Gently’ on the radio at a special moment in the narrative…
To find out more you’ll have to get yourself a copy and give it a read! 😊
‘The Certainty of Chance’ is available from all good retail outlets now, including on Amazon in Paperback and Kindle eBook formats:
Cool to hear that French science-adventure TV series ‘La Quête Des Vents’ that features my songs ‘Summer’ and ‘The Way You Look’ is still showing regularly on cable TV channels in Europe after 10 years! How bizarre! If anyone has seen it, let me know…!
“Gentle guitar backed by surfacing synth colors of translucent texture… As the music swells on the alluring wispy filaments of the synths, scrumptiously supple harmonies invade the soundscape… When the layers of harmonics amalgamate, the shimmering surface colors coalesce into a glorious flow of sound, creating plush, lingering pools of transcendent sonic expression. A beauty so extraordinary that it seems to have a vitality of its own.”– Pop Dust
“A delicately-worked approach to songwriting, weaving careful melodies with an emotional honesty that’s quite affecting… simple, uncluttered, unpretentious, direct, and engaging…”– Whisperin & Hollerin’
“A sense of earnest sincerity flows through this beautiful song, a little piano music adds some melody, but the feeling that this is from the heart is constantly apparent.”– Beehive Candy
