The Life of Books

The Life of Books Project is an Arts Council of England funded project completed May 2020.

I have researched, written and recorded 10 songs on the theme of our relationships with books and reading and it is a propaganda piece aimed at promoting bookshops, libraries and all things books. If you head over to my Blog pages you’ll find plenty of info about it.

If you helped by completing my survey or by chatting with me in the shop or on social media, thank you. All your thoughts, ideas and stories have gone into these songs and I’m very proud of what’s been written.

I have to say a special thank you to Craig Edmondson who produced it with me and mostly, for me, as he played instruments, rearranged songs, sorted my playing into a coherent form and basically made sure it happened. Thank you Craig. I have others to thank and I’ll be adding to and editing this page soon, but today I want to get up a couple of videos of songs I’m making available on social media and elsewhere for you to, hopefully enjoy.

Here’s An Old Bookshop and I Like Books. Further details about all the songs as soon as!
