Each month I email a news letter and let you know about what projects I'm working on for the month and shows.

I'm currently working on new original songs. After a break of 5 years, I've started to writing again in July 2017. I'm looking forward to sharing my new works and also the process of the album being written and recorded. I keep going back to early recordings of Neil Young, James Taylor, Jackson Browne and Cat Stevens. I love the honest recordings done live with just 1 or 2 mics and the way the sounds blend together.
 
The Humbletones was the name given to the musical duo to deliver my original songs and release of debut CD in 2010.
A ten track debut album of melodic indie acoustic groove music recorded in my home studio.
I wrote the songs and played guitar,bass and sang vocals and the drums were played by my friend Nick Tomlinson. 
At the time of writing I was listening to the likes of Neil Finn, Dave Matthews, Jakob Dylan and Damien Rice.
 All the songs originated on the acoustic guitar which remains true to the finished albums sound, giving it a lovely rich organic feel.
Lyrically the songs reflect on universal themes of personal triumph, love, hardship, environmental and political issues, and social observations.

SOMETIMES WE FALL. by Mark S Dabin

Haven't seen you in a little while.
Got to say you've been on my mind.
Thinking of days we had. How time just passed us by.
Did an angel come, and whisper in your ear.
Come with me boy. A new world awaits you here.

Sometimes we fall.
Can't find the strength to carry on.
Sometimes we fall ,away.

Family gathered round. Watched you through the night.
But the man they knew. Disappeared before their eyes.
Was it like a tide rolling in. Gently washed you away.
Two worlds colliding and you just couldn't stay.

Sometimes we fall.
Can't find the strength to carry on.
Sometimes we fall ,away.

Platitudes my friend, don't relieve the mess I'm in.

Or ease the pain.
If I feel you near. I'll try to shed no tear. I'll be a man.

Sometimes we fall.
Can't find the strength to carry on.
Sometimes we fall ,away.
