The Pathfinder Note #1

I'm just putting the finishing touches on the EP and wanted to tell you why it's called The Pathfinder.

For the last ten years I've been telling other peoples stories. As a film composer my job is to find the essence of the story, the inner world of the characters and bring it to life through the power of music.

But now I feel the need tell a more personal story, a story that is more a journey than a destination, using the power of creation to strip away the noise of life to discover what's important.

Because even though I'd achieved many of things in life that I'd set out to do, somewhere along the way I lost touch with my own essence, my own inner world had shut down as I focussed on getting things done and I lost touch with what it meant to be me.

Life has a way of letting you know when things aren't right and I was no exception, Physically, mentally and emotionally I paid the price for not being a whole person. But eventually I came to realise the need for change and intuitively I turned to the one thing I new that could help me figure it all out - music.

Music would help me find the path back to my inner world, clear the fog and the noise and show me a way forward. 

So The Pathfinder is a collection of pieces that are the first steps in a journey that is by no means complete.

I'm really thankful that you have chosen to be a part of my journey and I can't wait to share the EP with you.
