    Hi Reg, firstly congratulations on the FATEA award win, along with Ange Hardy who won the female award as you know. Ange is quite a fan of yours as I am, I’m also a fairly new but enthusiastic fan of hers as well. I have recently bought your ‘All This Longing ‘ album and coming from Bristol my first listen was to the song you wrote based on the Boy Poet Thomas Chatterton, who of course came from Redcliffe but sadly died in a garrett in London aged just 18. I have now read the words to this lovely song, using a modern day Tom as the topic matter and his love for the original Thomas. I love this song very much as coming from Bristol I know the story of Thomas Chatterton and of course have been in St Mary Redcliffe church quite a few times. If you have time can you let me / us know why you were inspired to write this song, but I assume it was partially as you too know of the short, sad life of Thomas Chatterton. Thanks in advance for any information you can share. Lastly I also love your songs ‘ My Name Is London Town ‘ which is on your ‘Leaves and Feathers ‘ album which I have on order, as the video to it is as excellent as the song lyrics and melody. I also appreciate your song ‘ Counting My Steps To You ‘ and I have shared the video of you singing it on the balcony of the Sidmouth CC on 26 June last year. My husband Paul,who I was married to for 43 years, passed away on 9 October 2012 in Southmead Hospital here in Bristol. For the last 6 years of his life he had Alzeimer’s disease progressively getting worse of course until he couldn’t remember us, but we looked after him at home until the final week when he had to be hospitalized and he died of a combination of End-stage Alzheimer’s disease and Bronchopneumonia. The words to this song express how Paul would have been mentally to a degree and although the words are a bit upsetting to listen to they nevertheless explain how people with this dreadful illness become. Paul was just 65 years old so far too young to leave his family and friends. Are there any plans to record this song please, as I will certainly buy any album it features on. You may like to know that a friend of mine in St Paul, Minnesota, USA listened to this song on FB and she said she likes it very much. Sorry this has been a long comment but hope you have found the time to read it all. Keep up the excellent song writing. I believe Ange is coming to see you soon and no doubt will have a chat with you. She told me she met you briefly awhile ago. Thanks very much for your beautiful songs. Best wishes, Pauline Mitchell,Henbury, Bristol.

      Dear Pauline,

      Thankyou for taking the time to write. Firstly i’m very sorry to hear the news of your husband. i have played a few care homes now and seen the devastating effects dementia can have on both the patient and the families. Thankyou for sharing the song, it has had some very positive reactions.

      Redcliffe Boy was written to express my opinion that it was very unlikely Thomas committed suicide. I wrote it in that manner because i am aware how young impressionable people are inclined to follow their heroes and because tom was in a way the first ‘Rock n roll suicide’ i was aware that many younger people admired him more for the nature of his death than his work. i believe tom was a brilliant, intelligent young man with everything to live for and that his death was an accident caused by an overdose of arsenic, administered in a laudanum haze to treat the SDi that he had.

      Best Wishes, Reg
