Well before I get too carried away, I found a bit of earlier writing
that serves as an introduction to Davina Records and the music from
around 1997 when I first started the website in the days of windows
95 and the 10 megabyte hard drive....
This is roughly what I wrote....
Well it is
interesting what inspires an artist to be an artist; if I may be
considered one. For me it has been the loves and strange events
in my life. My daughter, and all that went with her, and
Dianne, my real and longest relationship of almost eleven years,
were the most significant. Memories of
of the past and
very distant past inspired a good deal of my music too.
came into my life in 1989, she recognized musical talents that I
never seriously acknowledged or developed in my earlier years,
and part of her support was to take the form of a very special
gift celebrating my 44th birthday in 1991, a magnificent
Yamaha SY99 Music Synthesizer.
plays the piano - in particular, the classics.
Some of her other
interests are.... her parents and family, applied religious
philosophy, astrology, literature, rare books, romance writing,
movies, vegetarian and gourmet food, clothing, gardening, leaf
and flower collecting, Ebony our cat
- now gone walkabout - as cats always do.
We met at the
only party I had been to for over 10 years and straight away my
destiny was set on a new course. Later when our relationship had
developed, she bought the Yamaha SY99 Keyboard for my birthday
and within one year I had composed over 100 pieces of music and
finally completed my first CD of ten songs by February 1995.
So far, it has
taken 10 years to relatively "complete" only 5 CDs, as
been such a work-load amid incredible and barely believable "distractions". I have
enough music, as I write, to fill over 50 CDs, and I am aiming to
publish at least 20 before the space-ship arrives.... and more... if
"they" let me. :)
Dianne's faith in me, I would still be dreaming of what I might
do some day. Dianne is the principal inspiration for the
creation of Davina Records.... and my daughter,
initially the main target audience; a message about surviving
and overcoming the distance forced between us, at an early age, by life
