Clare Harding - Civil Servant, Songwriter
The way John works his magic never ceases to amaze me. All I can provide is the melody and lyric – I don’t play an instrument, can’t write my music down and wouldn’t inflict my singing on an unsuspecting public – but after a few hours with John, his expertise and musicianship, I come out with a demo that sounds as good as at least half the stuff I hear on the radio. And demos that get results too – shortlisted and highly commended in various UK and US songwriting contests, and in a range of categories – pop, country, jazz, etc. One of these days, when I get a life, I might actually find the time to get some commercial interest in them too.
