    I love puppets!

    I’ve composed scores for 20+ puppet theatre shows from weird and wonderful Avant Garde adult shows to super cute family shows like Julia ‘The Gruffalo’ Donaldson’s take on ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’.

    Each of them was a joy and pushed me to make new and different kinds of music.

    I wanted to share some of that music BUT… I do like a ‘proper’ song me, a ’singer-songwriter-y’ song. I just do. So I took some of the existing compositions and transformed them into new ‘proper’ songs and what belters they are!

    VERY proud to add this to my catalogue - enjoy!

about

Katy Dent has played fiddle on everything I've done for 20 years (!) and I realised I didn't have anything for her on this album, so I built this to make sure she had a good juicy bit.

The song is about being a sort of likeable, ageing, sex pest. Write what you know indeed.

cue from 'Invisible Me' for Maia Kirkman-Richards

lyrics

The Brightest Diamond in the Rough

In my head I’m a pretty man still
and your smile is of interest not pity

And I’d be all set to be in for the kill
if only you could see me

back in the day I shone like a diamond
watch them fall in love
sharp as a knife
sweet as a rose
diamond in the rough
back in the day I shone like a diamond
honestly my love
had my flaws
but don’t we all?
diamond in the rough

When I dance ah this diamond still shines
and the mirror is the fool not me

so take a chance on this diamond of mine
lets see if you can see what I see

back in the day I shone like a diamond
watch them fall in love
sharp as a knife
sweet as a rose
diamond in the rough
back in the day I shone like a diamond
honestly my love
had my flaws
but don’t we all?
diamond in the rough
