about

No One’s Here is a collection of poems on the theme of identity and the self. I’ve always had a passion for mystic poetry and my bookshelves at home are full of texts on Zen and Chan, Buddhist and Hindu poetry and the writings of Sufi mystics. I discovered the Persian 13th century poets Rumi and Hafez in my mid twenties and delving into their achingly profound poetry, inspired me to attempt to use the poem as a means of observing and analyzing the way I live my life.
The poems in the book are simply, thoughts laid out in a poetic form. The words are the records of a kind of internal observation, one that can quietly uncover and reveal home truths.

To accompany the poems in the book, I decided to write and record a series of instrumental and vocal pieces that would mirror the meditative quality of the poems. A series of 9 ambient instrumental pieces to accompany the poems in the book. I wanted to imagine that before reading the poems, the reader could put on the cd to create a mood in which the reading of the poems would be more intense.

If my songs were maps I'd want them to stretch from the English moors to the Saharan dunes via the plains of the Mediterranean.
