To celebrate the festival concert ongoing success and recording sessions going well for the new album, I’m posting a new track. This won’t quite make the album but was worth posting all the same as it has some charm.

On the 6th May I was playing at the Kent Vegan Festival, trying out a few new pieces. Here is the last 5 minutes of the set (Tech info: shot on an iPad, so not great quality film – plus there was a buzzing on the PA that had to be filtered out, making the piano sound a bit muggy)

The premier of The Dreamers of Dreams was last month on the 8th April. For those that missed it here is the (slightly rough) footage from the day. On that day I was playing first violin, you might be able to spot me!
In this latest video I believe I have brought something new to my listeners. This is one of my favourite tracks, and was inspired by a bird that sat outside my window one day. Interestingly, this is the first of my videos to incorporate dance with the music, and will not be the last, as it works so well. They make an excellent fusion. And I will be working in the future with dancers for a live event, watch this space!
With a very productive start to the new year, with new projects and opportunities underway I wanted to begin with a new track. This piece, called May Child, had been rattling round for a few months but never really finalised. Yet after some inspiration and motivation I finished it off and made a music video to compliment it. A double whammy! It’s now available on practically every music service there is (e.g. iTunes, Amazon, Soundcloud, Spotify, Google play et al). Here’s to a great year ahead for everyone. Thanks for your support!
A blast from the past – two years ago I released this EP with a band I was playing with called Split Persons. This is my favourite song, The World Will Forget, which I wrote after coming though a particularly rough Christmas a few years ago where I had a horrible flu, and had to drag myself back to the family home. Although the song has no reference to any of those facts, it shows a massive disappointment in the world.

I’m really pleased to announce that I have a new and lively orchestral piece all written, published with an orchestra to perform it. Rehearsals begin in the new year, getting ready for a spring time performance in April. It’s been a great couple of months getting all of this ready. It has been written to be interpreted with dance, and details of that are to be confirmed. I am now writing another one for the summer concert, on the 8th July.
The facebook event for this concert on the 8th April, in folkestone is HERE (or just click on the poster below)
After an 8 day tour with the Paris/Bristol based Fantasy Orchestra, playing violin and singing. Here is one track that was filmed, The Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever”.
A new short film by called “No vote”. This was put together after an afternoon walking through a wilderness area in Kent. I wrote the words whilst sat down for lunch, and felt inspired to record my voice peaking the words. And then further, the idea to make a short video to accompany it on location, where the words were written.
The poem can be found here. The music was taken from a piece called Nothing To Doubt
A new short film called “Somewhere to go”. Music and words by Paul Terry.
Featuring the mellifluous tones of Laura Kimpton. The theme to this film is nature, just as the words and music are too.
Sit back and relax as it takes you on a journey.
The track can be streamed on Apple Music, Deezer and Spotify, and purchased on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.
A new short film called ‘Illusions’. This is the second film based on the theme of nature. This one is based around water.
Illusions can be streamed on Apple Music, Deezer and Spotify, and purchased on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.
To herald in a new year, a new short film called ‘Summer’s Reflection‘. This is the first film based on the theme of nature, and this one starts with the majesty and wonder of the sun.
The full track (called “New Reflections”) can be streamed on Apple Music, Deezer and Spotify, and purchased on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.
Just added to iTunes ‘By My Window She Sings‘ For Piano, Horn section and Solo violin.
This track was inspired by a bird that was sitting on a window in another room whilst I was playing the piano. I was working on a chord sequence and the bird was imitating the rhythms I was playing! I just kept on going and recorded it (although the bird song wasn’t captured on the recording). And when I finished to go and see what the bird looked like, it flew away!
