Shipwreck is the 5th track on Advice To The Wayfarer. It has been described as acid rock, neo-psychedelia, jazz fusion and space rock.
Voir Un Ami Pleurer is the 14th track on Advice To The Wayfarer. It was written by Jacques Brel and recorded in 1977. The song is in French and the title translates to ‘Watching a friend cry’.
Plastic Bars is the 13th track on Advice To The Wayfarer. It is the oldest song from the album as it was written in 2000. It was played live by my first band Generic between 2001 and 2004.
Intermission Nightmare is the 7th track on Advice To The Wayfarer. It was originally written in 2010 but excluded from the album Scary Poppins as it seemed too creepy. Until 2013 it was instrumental and contained no electric guitar, percussion or bass.
Scapegoat – Alternate is a different version of the song Scapegoat which became track 1 on Scary Poppins (2010). In the New York Music Daily, Delarue described the final version as “a swirly, creepy 6/8 anthem, psychedelic 60s gone noir cabaret with 80s goth production: watery guitars, icy keys and vintage Bowie-esque vocals.”
I uploaded a new song to Soundcloud and so far it’s been compared to David Bowie, Queensrÿche & Uriah Heep. I can’t say I’m influenced by any of them as I haven’t heard much of their music. I’ve been making an effort to listen to Bowie more recently though… just to understand the comparisons really.
Playing With Fire is from my 4th album Advice to the Wayfarer. I’m a little late posting it here but things have been crazy lately. 7 of the people who have commented on it on Soundcloud have likened it to David Bowie. It’s also been described as ‘dreamlike’, ‘atmospheric’ and ‘brooding grandeur’. I’m pretty happy with that. Oh, yeah, and here’s the song:
This is another new track from my forthcoming album ‘Advice to the Wayfarer’.
So far, comparisons have been made to David Bowie, Nick Cave, The Church and Andrew Lloyd Webber. As for genre, people have called it psychedelic, deathrock and low rock. I had fun looking into ‘deathrock’ as it’s a genre I’m not particularly familiar with.
Here is another track from my new album “Advice To The Wayfarer”. The Bowie comparisons just keep coming thick and fast.
No Roads To Take (previously titled ‘Sacrificial Lamb’) is the first track from my new album “Advice to the Wayfarer”. The rest of the album will be online soon.
A while back I was asked what my song ‘Fade Away’ was about. I summarised it as best I could like this:
“Fade Away is about trying to help people who, after being hurt, have reacted by hurting others. The tendency for certain minorities to be demonised for societies problems is also a theme in the song. Above all I wanted to convey that those who love the most live the most.”
