The Last Great American Dynasty (Taylor Swift cover)

SWNews

My final TFB session track of 2020 is something a bit different. To mark the end of the year I wanted to do a cover of someone else’s song from 2020 rather than one of mine, and I’ve chosen one from Taylor Swift’s fantastic Folklore album. This is a story-telling song with brilliant lyrics, and rather a lot of them. … Read More

Half-Light – The Future Bites Sessions

SWNews

Today’s session track delves back to the music I wrote for Deadwing, the movie that never was (but that may be again), a love theme between the two main characters.

Voyage 34 – The Future Bites Sessions

SWNews

The latest Future Bites session is one of my very earliest solo recordings. Voyage 34 was released under the name Porcupine Tree way back in 1992, and at the time was one of the longest singles ever released at 30 minutes!

Watch the new video for PERSONAL SHOPPER

SWNews

“The song PERSONAL SHOPPER sits somewhere between being a love-letter to shopping (which I love to do!) and the uneasiness I feel about the more insidious side of modern consumerism.
