On this page you can listen to the main songs I have written and recorded solo over the last 40 years.
If you wish to watch or listen to performances where I have been part of groups or backing other artists, you can go to the groups page which has links to video and audio clips from the internet.
The songwords for the songs I have written, and some information about when and where they were recorded, can be found here.
All songs are performed by me, and all songs are written by me, except for
- all songs on Bear's Repeating are written by other people.
- on Bear My Soul, Your Grace Still Amazes Me was written by Cissy Padgett.
- also on Bear My Soul, the first line of Don't You Forget comes from Save The Last Dance For Me by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman.
- on Bear's Greatest Hits Volume II the musical themes for Spring And Autumn were written by Peter Beveridge
- also on Bear's Greatest Hits Volume II, Valerie was written by Steve Winwood and Will Jennings
- on Bear's Greatest Hits Volume I the music for The Blessed Son Of God was written by R Vaughan Williams, and the words are are a translation by Miles Coverdale of a hymn by Martin Luther
- various songs have verses paraphrased or quoted from the bible, particularly Ecclesiastes from Bear My Soul and Overture (incorporating Lift and 103) from Bear Witness
I have grouped my songs into 'albums', with three albums completed and work in progress on another two.
- Bear Witness. Songs from 2016 to 2021.
- Bear's Repeating. Songs written by other people recorded between 1979 and 2021.
- Bear My Soul. Songs from 1999 to 2015.
- Bear's Greatest Hits Volume II. Songs from 1988 to 1998.
- Bear's Greatest Hits Volume I. Songs from 1975 to 1979.
I hope you enjoy listening to my songs.
Work on this 'album' is in progress.
As each track is completed it will be uploaded to SoundCloud and added to the playlist for this album.
This 'album' is an ongoing collection of songs written by other people.
The earliest recording dates back to 1979, the latest was recorded in 2018.
I expect to continue to add the occasional track in the future.
