I have been writing songs and playing in various bands or as a solo act since 1990, recording an album ("Mellow Drama", with the band Phringe) and three EPs ("Window Seat" - Phringe; "Suspension Of Disbelief" with Memo and "Exit Strategy" as Bruce Dennill) as well as occasional one-off projects. In a perfect world, I'd be James Taylor, but with more hair and my lovely wife and kids.
Rise & Fall
For me, what happens there is perhaps the most important moment in the Bible. The Crucifixion comes shortly afterwards, yes, but it is in the garden that Jesus wrestles with the implications of what He is about to do and - crucially - decides to go ahead with his Father's plan. God as man, placing the holiness and perspective of the former ahead of the fear and anguish of the latter - it always has and always will move me in a profound way.
