I guess there are many authors like me, who sit in their studios playing solitaire. Surrounded in thought and ideas and writing away the day.

It was a very exciting day when Stephen Kiely and I, along with, Busy Izzy and Friends, visited Abbey Road in London. September 2018. There were many excited "Beatles" fans lined up to walk across that 'famous' crossing.
Innovating Music Since 1931. Abbey Road Studios is the most famous recording studio in the world and a global music icon. Originally a nine-bedroom house built in 1829, it was purchased by the Gramophone Company in 1928 who went on to build the world's first purpose-built recording studio.
The Beatles released their album entitled, 'Abbey Road' on the 26th of September 1969. It was recorded between 22nd February and the 20th of August 1969.
Its popularity is probably due in part to the album's success. The album debuted straight to number one in 1969, and is considered one of the greatest albums ever made by the Beatles. The recording studio EMI changed its name to Abbey Road, possibly as a direct result of its popularity.
Stephen and I have been writing songs together for many years and we enjoy collaborating on the Busy Izzy songs. Our writing and recording sessions are always lots of fun. We bounce off each other very well. Sometimes I will come up with a melody or a lyric or both, and we’ll flesh it out together, or Stephen will present me with a variation which we’ll then combine. Sometimes it works the other way, with Stephen playing me a tune with a basic lyric, and I’ll have that in my head for a day or so before it sparks yet another idea. It’s an exciting process and we’re really happy with all the catchy songs we have written for Busy Izzy and Friends.
