Alignment – New Video for a New Year!

Happy New Year folks!  –  here we go into 2018…

For the new year yesterday I published a new video for my recent release ‘Alignment’. Alignment is a very mellow and meditative song of acoustic guitar + vocal.

I recorded this song in my home studio in Perth/Scotland 2015 (between my kitchen and hallway) after having it on the back burner for a number of years. Performed only a handful of times over the years, I composed Alignment back in 2007 whilst I was living in Edinburgh/Scotland – it was part of a new wave of inspiration, and songs I was composing from that time. Finally Alignment was mastered in 2016 whilst I was living in Elgin/Scotland – this song has had a tour in itself!

Alignment – Video

The video – you can watch below – was filmed whilst visiting family for Christmas on Dec 25th 2015 at Fraserburgh Beach in the North-East of Scotland.

On a calm winters day whilst out walking on the beach I was pleasantly surprised just how calm it was for a winters day and also how quiet it was, given it was Christmas day. Feeling inspired, I sat and filmed this footage on an ipad propped up on my rucksack to try and get a good angle. I had a feeling I would synchronise the footage with one of my songs but didn’t know which one it would be at the time. Just over a year and half later in 2017 I decided to synchronise my track alignment with the video footage, and here it is below!

I am really happy with how it turned out, I enjoy its simplicity…. and the independent music endevour it took for me to put it together. This is the first track where I have done every single element of its creation and release barring just one, the only aspect I never personally completed was mastering the recording.


Alignment was released on 27th Dec 2017.
