NEW PAN CD!

I am really pleased to announce the launch of my new CD! Named after Lord Kitchener’s calypso celebration of the flame-haired ladies, the album demonstrates the ample capabilities of the pan for versatility, and for musical and emotional expression. Two tracks (‘Happy’ and ‘Ave Maria’) feature fabulous and unique vocals from my long-term friend from our days in the Radcliffe Rollers Steel Band: Jo Servi. There is a wide range of styles here from soca and calypso to JS Bach and Lou Reed. I've had universally great feedback so far from everyone who has heard it so l am confident that this is my best work so far. We can ship worldwide.Outta de Box - Mark LoquanHappy - Pharrell Williams Poker Face - Lady GagaYou Know I’m No Good - Amy Winehouse Mario (Overworld Theme) - Koji Kondo Price Tag - Jessie J Red Head - Lord Kitchener The Statue Got Me High - They Might Be Giants All Tomorrow’s Parties - The Velvet Underground Anji - Davey Graham Sarabande - G.
