Our take on this Cy Coleman/Carolyn Leigh classic, from the show Under My Skin – Mark Jennett celebrates Frank Sinatra

Back soon …

Welcome to my spruced up new website courtesy of the webmaster of webmasters Howard Lester Designs.

Well we don’t half live in interesting times.  Having been all set to start gigging again after a break, along came Covid and put the mockers on that.  Who knows when we’ll get back to How Things Were (or whatever version of How Things Were that we end up with) but, until we do, take care of yourselves.

Like everyone else in my position, I’ll be noodling away (in my case, at lyrics) and trying to learn new stuff to share with you when we can visit jazz clubs and cabaret venues again.

In the meantime, another rather exciting project has been quietly gestating – Chris Lee’s A Troubled Man.  Check the other news for more info…

A Troubled Man

I am thrilled and delighted to announce a brand new project which will be coming your way soon. A Troubled Man is a song cycle written by Chris Lee inspired by the Wallender novels of Henning Mankell. Please check out the website for more info where you can watch the promo and listen to a demo of one of the tracks.

We’ll be gigging this later this year so watch this space for further announcements. Meanwhile you can also follow the project on Twitter and Facebook so please like or follow us for updates.

I’m very lucky.  While the last few months have been tough, I’ve still been able to work and keep the proverbial wolf from the door.  For some musicians, especially those with families, this time has been disastrous.  We’ve all felt worried and frightened but for some this has been compounded by really immediate fears about paying the rent and feeding children.

As you may the know, the Musicians’ Union have set up a Coronavirus Hardship Fund, providing small grants of £200 to provide urgent relief for musicians in genuine financial hardship.  Please consider making a donation here.
