Sometimes, a song needs to see more of the light.

For deeply personal reasons, now is the time for When Morning Comes.

The song was recorded and originally released on "Love & Hope" in 2009.

Back in 2013, I was handed some vintage video of me and my family back in my early years. Friends pointed out other footage of North Northumberland and Thropton, where I grew up.

This, and some amazing footage I found online prompted me to make a video for the song.

The bodywork is a little rusty, but the bumps and scrapes add character.

One or two really bad smashes left their scars and, once or twice, my family told me it was a complete write off.

There have even been occasions when "friends" tried to run it off the road deliberately.

The old motor runs a little rough these days and I'd be lying if I didn't admit there are more miles on the clock than I'd like.

Yet now, after all these years, it's still going. It needs experts to tune it up, and a lot of tender loving care but it still goes.

Most important, it's mine: it's the only one I've got, and I wouldn't trade it for the world, even if I could.

Welcome to my life ... and my music.
