after many many requests I have compiled all the various rare b-sides to obscure 7”s and outakes that were previously unavailable onto a CD and digital release.  This will be a limited one of run of 50 CDs....order here:


january 2020

because I am no longer making music commercially, I am getting rid of my two main recording and touring guitars.  I will of course retain my lovely 1969 Gibson B25.  Here is then your chance to own dakota suite history.  Both my 52 reissue telecaster and my custom built (only one therefore in the world) luthiered guitar have been owned by me from new and used on every single record I have made.

Go get em!

november 2019 - the end

2020 marks the end of dakota suite I am afraid.  I have found it increasingly difficult emotionally to interact with the world in this way.  so I am releasing my last record ever, and I'd like to thank all of you who came along with me and interacted with me in some way.  these are the memories and things that have shaped me, I am grateful to all of you.

this record therefore represents the last things I want to say/express.  I worked really hard on it with quentin sirjacq, we rented a temple in japan and went in with no songs, we created what you will hear on the spot, something I have always wanted to do, but have found a bit of a high ask.  what we recorded sounds beautiful and I am glad its the last thing I will release.

So, thank you and farewell, I have loved interacting with you all both via emails and in person.  I remain 'felled' but 'indestructible'.

Take care, see you down the road somewhere.  Continue to write to me if you need to ask anything.  I remain open.

bye bye then....mind how you go.
