Kingsland Hill - Album Cover

Kingsland Hill

July 2021 Release

    Bio: I live in Auckland, New Zealand and have been writing songs and playing guitar for longer than I care to say. My roots are in London, south of The River, but have been in New Zealand since 1986. I have spent my life, my day-job, working in universities, teaching and research, mostly medical statistics. The songs in the albums at this site represent those mostly written since about 1995.

    Songwriting: My hope is that anyone who listens to these songs finds something to engage them. I find it interesting how a song, its tune and lyrics, develop, morph and mature (hopefully) over time. And some just fall by the wayside. I find it harder and harder to write lyrics. There are some great lyricists to inspire, Dylan, Cohen and Waits, of course. Fraught angst, cliches, and preaching lyrics are best avoided – at least I don’t care to hear them - though I am guilty myself.

    Music: Feel free to listen and download from the site (they are MP3 files). Also, you can buy tracks of the albums at Bandcamp, and listen on Spotify and iTunes. I have CDs of all the albums, if anyone wants please contact me – Situation Normal has a nice lyric booklet. Sorry no vinyl as yet!
