Having worked with composer David Smart for many years on the soundtracks for literally hundreds of my TV Spots, sooner or later we were going to move on to writing and producing songs.
The discipline that comes with putting TV ads together at break-neck speed created a chemistry which enables us to produce immaculate lyrics accompanied by a unique and superbly composed piece of music. Our love of words and music has taken us from novelty songs to protest songs, ballads, country, swing and pop. That also includes all 14 original tracks from our spectacular stage show, 'Call Me Diana'.
So, stick on your headset, sit back and enjoy. If there's nothing here you like...we'll write something.
This song was written in response to a newspaper article about a beautiful thirteen year old girl who was bricked in the face by a thug. Whilst the young girl underwent many operations to rebuild her face, the thug taunted her through her classroom window. Our song is a protest against the British Justice system, the punishment doesn't fit the crime. In this case the High Court Judge gave the thug a £200 fine with a year to pay, the young girl was disfigured for life! I also directed the 'gritty' promo, and appeared in it as the High Court Judge.
This is our second attempt at an England World Cup song. Using the cliché of the British Bulldog speaking in the voice of Sir Winston Churchill. We had a very limited budget, therefore I directed friends and family to portray a winning party atmosphere. Such a shame the England Squad didn't live up to it!
The voice of Moss the Bulldog, (Winston Churchill): Brian Watson.
I can write in many different genres of music, covering many different styles and tastes. From what used to be called Novelty Songs through to Ballads, Pop, Swing, Country and Show tunes.
Here is just a small sample.
Name that tune
Where you'll find the finest creative thinking. Where communication problems are very quickly solved with the simplest creative solutions, produced to the highest possible quality of production, and always within budget.
By extending that same creative thinking, those big ideas which helped grow many of the world's biggest brands, into other areas of the arts and entertainment, there's a much wider understanding of communications. Direct a message to one person, and everyone will listen.
