*note: For the content of lyrics which I have written, that is to say the poetry, I have largely used really complicated forms of expression. This being the case, some lyrics may give an entirely wrong impression of who I really am. If a lyric from a song bothers you, it is almost certainly a layered metaphor not meant to be taken literally. I hope that in the future I may explain song lyrics in some way, for better understanding. In real life I have always and do wish everyone full safety and happiness, always, it is possible that this may not come across in some songs. Often the language of my songs is very coded, there are a few which I think might easily and probably create a real misunderstanding of my true meaning and intention, therefore I may one day take these few songs off the internet or some other clear action to increase general understanding; until then here is a very unabridged collection of my work, and the work of close friends which I have been privileged to be part of.
The band 5!Now You're Talking, and a few other music teams, contain about 40-45% songs written by my musical counterpart and dear best friend Matt Banham, perhaps 10-20% written by best friend Hans Zuidland or other friends and relatives, and 40-45% songs written by myself. Like all bands, the songs that result are a collaboration of the contributions of each member that performed it. Also Nigel Koop, who produced four of these albums, had a particularly significant guiding influence on those works. Perhaps in the future I will identify who wrote a particular song, and also move the 5!NYTK and related albums to their own page, which they deserve as they are truly a team effort to say the least, and are most certainly a collection of Matt's songs as much as they are of my own.
