about

There’s something very special about re-visiting the past and if you lived in the 90’s then capturing moments in time was very different to how we do it today.

Listening to recordings of myself singing songs I had written for the first time on a 4 track tape recorder brings back lots of memories. I was 15 years old and that was 15 years ago.

‘Once Upon A Time’ there was a teenage boy who heard some music that changed his world. The year was 1996 and I was in year 8 at high school.

I had started learning guitar in year 8 and I was starting to write my own songs. I recorded them on a one track tape recorder until I got a four track cassette recorder by pooling my money in with my fellow band member Owen Dwyer. Influenced by Nirvana and Pearl Jam, ‘Once Upon A Time’ is some of the first songs that I ever wrote. ‘Youth’ was the very first song I ever wrote. It uses the first 4 chords I learnt on guitar.

The cover is a picture I drew when I was 5. It’s amazing how hearing these songs takes me right back to my teenage years and all the fun times I had with my friends. Such is the power of music!
