Vignettes
I discovered a spare YouTube account in my name, so I decided to use it as a home for my random short videos.

Each clip in the playlist contains one of my 'musical doodles', alongside footage shot with my iPhone.

My 'alt' YouTube channel can be found here. My 'proper' music videos live here.

Inwards
My take on Inwards by Big Country, with a vaguely mid-period Snow Patrol production, self-recorded at home, December 2016.

The video is an array of layered mosaic clips, rather than one of my usual 'walking in a field looking forlorn' efforts.

Composers: Big Country

Train In Vain
My lifelong friend Paul came to stay for a few days, so we decided to learn one of Mick Jones' finest tunes, record it live and then cut a video in a single day.

Saw The Door Was Open
This song was written in early May 2016 as part of a large batch of new tunes. It was the first track to be fully completed.

This take was filmed and recorded live at dusk on June 7th 2016, during a brief lull in the seemingly never-ending air traffic.

Natural Stuff (live acoustic)
This song was one of the last to be written when I was finishing up my Fieldwork album in spring 2015.

It took a lot of time and practice to be able to play and sing this particular track. This version was filmed in June 2016.

Hey What Ya Got?
I taped a drum loop during a Medicine Show rehearsal. Within hours I'd built this rough and ready song around it.

I then set about making a video for the track. I managed to write and record the music and complete the video all in one week. Made in February 2015.

Running To Stand Still
In May 2013, on the eve of The Medicine Show's launch in Spain, we attempted a tune we'd never played before.

I knew the lyrics and arrangement, and Roy improvised using his newly-acquired lapsteel skills. We decided to set up a camera and film the resulting live jam.
