Lockdown is a double-sided single - available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon and TikTok. During the Coronavirus Lockdown I wrote two songs expressing my views on this strange new world and recorded them on my iPhone using GarageBand. This was quite fiddly, with just the phone screen available for all the editing work. Simon Farmer produced two fab saxophone parts and sent them over. I mixed the finished recordings and forwarded them to Kevin Jones, who kindly mastered them ready for release. Ref: CJM21

Journey Part 1 features ten new songs composed on my old acoustic guitar. Recorded with Kevin Jones, who I’d previously worked with on my, ‘View from a window’ album. We have gone for an organic feel - I just want each song to tell a story about the journey. You set out with a blank canvas, do your best and the sky’s the limit. Ref: CJM18

Dangerous Moonlight is a four-song EP featuring Dave Moore on vocals. I’d written a new batch of songs all inspired by ‘feelings’. Dave had done backing vocals on a couple of my previous albums and I am a big fan of his rich and warm voice, so decided to ask him to do the vocals on this project. He's done a great job and we kept it to just my acoustic guitar and Dave’s vocal - enjoy. x Ref: CJM17

Standing Room Only features twelve new self-penned compositions. With its combination of words and music, a song can be the most expressive of all artistic mediums and for me, the process of writing and recording is an extraordinary journey. I can explore real and often gritty subjects, making observations and asking questions. I then enjoy wrapping the lyric in both beautiful and powerful music. On this album, I move from fragile acoustic singer songwriter numbers, through jazz, country, rock and roll, to full blown epic rock. Some great musicians came along on the journey and I can’t thank them enough for their input, their time and most importantly, their talent, which helped make this a very special album. Ref: CJM16

View from a window features nine new songs and four short instrumentals. Each composition is built around the acoustic guitar, but I’ve added more layers than on the previous two albums and have gone for a more polished overall production. Like on the previous album, I’ve got some of my local music friends to help me out and they’ve added some real beauty, depth and colour to the sounds. Ref: CJM14

Me and my Martin is a nine song collection, featuring seven of my own compositions, along with my interpretation of a couple of old traditional tunes. I’ve recorded each song using just an old Martin 00-21 acoustic guitar and my vocal. It’s an interesting, if rather exposed way of working. Ref: CJM12
