Help NOAH and get the free debut album from Sanity Bypass

Sanity Bypass Album Giveaway - please donate to NOAH charity

Coming up to Christmas I often think of people less fortunate than you or me (please bear with me) and as I am not a rich person and continually live hand to mouth (but am happy enough) I can not afford to make big donations to charities so I have given 2 years of my life in writing an album called Safety Pin which I am giving away totally free in the hope that you can make a small donation to a local charity called NOAH in Bedfordshire which does a huge amount for the homeless.


The album was due to be released commercially on iTunes and had funding to do so but I have never been under any illusions that I would ever make any money or gain celebrity status from it – and that has never been the driving force behind writing it in the first place as some of you may already know. I have made the decision that if I give it away for free then I may be able to help this charity in some small way, even if it is just by making you aware that the charity exists. Any donations, or even just sharing this post with everyone you know on Facebook etc will make the whole thing worthwhile to me.

You can listen to Ground Zero, a track about the homeless right here.

UPDATE: The response so far has been good and people are making donations to NOAH


Out with the old, in with the new

Well, I have finally taken the plunge and switched to WordPress for my blog. Whilst I was at it I pulled down my old website, gave it a good old shake and a new lick of paint. It still needs a few final whistles and bells but in essence I am happy with it at last! When Postorous was alive I always used that for my blogs but it went belly up so I was forced to change and decided Tumblr would be my platform of choice simply because the iPhone app was available when few others were. I did not get on well with Tumblr in the long run and switched to Blogger which was OK and I still have a couple of blogs running on that.

In the end, and I hope this is the end, I decided that I wanted a blog that I could actually install on my main website so finally took the plunge and now I am a fully fledged WordPresser! I have not bothered pulling any of my old stuff over as I feel a new start can be a really cool thing as it will force me to actually start writing again.

Thanks for popping by and I hope you will visit again soon to see what I have done with this blog.
