I’ve made so much new music over the last 18
months, and I look forward to telling you more about it soon!
In the meantime I present to you this song
“Is There Room For All Of It”
Words, singing, organ by me.
Double bass by Thierry Amar.
Drums by Jim White.
Mixed by Radwan Ghazi Moumneh.
Video by me, edited by Nadim Chartouny.

This is the first capital S ‘song’ I’ve ever

Recorded my parts at home, then Thierry at
Hotel2Tango, Jim beamed in from Melbourne, then brought it back home to worry

A few months later, I got a call from a tree

Asked if it could please be in the music video.

the editing machine.
Thanks for listening. I’ll be touring Europe
in November with lots of new music— about which, again, more news soon!
Hope you enjoy.
I miss you.
