about

Sunlight was written about and inspired by the my visit to the historic workers' village of Port Sunlight.

The intro for the song sounds a bit like Pachelbel's Canon in D, but it was purely unintentional!

I visited Port Sunlight as a child and never went back there until recently. I always had distant memories of the buildings and streets and the village seemed to look very familiar when I went back. I was fascinated by the buildings and streets and the history of the place. I've always had a connection with the history of Port Sunlight, having lived in Bolton most my life, where the names "Lever" and "Leverhulme" are everywhere! The song "Sunlight" puts a modern twist on why people were encouraged to live in Port Sunlight when it was first founded.

I've recently performed Sunlight live in store at my local HMV store. I will also be performing at HMV in Stockport on Saturday 17th of June, and HMV in Warrington on the 24th of June.

"Sunlight" is the title track of my latest album, also called "Sunlight". Copies of the album will be available to buy in all of those stores, along with my last single "Yellow and Grey" (also taken from the album "Sunlight").

lyrics

meet me down in sunlight
I'll meet you there today
Meet me down in sunlight
Todays the perfect day

Lots of pretty houses
lots of perfect streets
Meet me there in sunlight
It's the only place to be

chorus
Living here in sunlight the perfect place for you
living here is sunlight where all your dreams come true

Change the way you're living
Tomorrow you will know
That living here is sunlight
its the only place to go

Lots of happy workers
lots of things to do
living here in sunlight
the only place for you

chorus
Living here in sunlight the perfect place for you
living here is sunlight where all your dreams come true

Living here in sunlight you'll always have a friend
living here is sunlight you're dreams will never end
