Maurice John Sutherst.
From Newcastle UK.
I began writing songs and performing in pubs and clubs around the North of England way back in 2001. This led to a meeting with David Wood who was well known for his work with Lindisfarne and Sting and many top artists from the local area, he liked my songs and offered me a recording and publishing contract.
My first CD "The Riverman" was released in 2005 on the "Outburst" label, recorded at the legendary "Impulse" studio in Wallsend, produced by Alan Blevins and was a local success.. t.v. and radio shows followed along with festivals and tours through out the UK.
December 2006 brought a new recording contract with Red Straw records and an award winning new album "Touch the Sky"10 original tracks recorded at The Bakery studio, North Shields, produced by Elaine Johnson and Mark Littlemore.
I gave up the day job and I concentrated writing songs while earning a living from touring throughout the UK, at that time the internet music scene was in full flow and through a mutual friend I was introduced to Australian producer "Paris kis" we began sending song files and recordings ideas via the internet and we soon found we could work very well collaborating on music projects both writing songs and recording, to date we've recorded two great albums. "Now you're covered" a compilation of cover songs requested at my live gigs and "Mo Blues" all original blues songs as well as several singles with many more to come.
