Stephen Dale Petit is a genius. He is simply a musical and a lyrical genius in his own right. His album Cracking the code is evident of this. Stephen is truly a great songwriter and poet.

It’s been a busy 6 months and there have been many revelations, Where to start? I have started a label called 359 Music with my old friend Iain McNay from Cherry Red. Iain has been around since the start; he signed my songs as a publisher 33 years ago. There had been talk of my new label for a while and I had the option of running 1123 Records for Warner’s Japan but when it came down to it owning half of the company is a lot more sexy than a 6 figure salary and no shares,
