Music has always been important to me and remains a great passion. I first got invoved in music as a form of expression by joining a a reggae sound system ( see my dissertation) I then bought my first guitar at the age of 19 when a girlfreind at the time dumped me. I put my feelings down on paper and strummed a few chords - my songwriting carreer had began.'
ANGELS DON’T DIE .
DEDICATED TO SHARDAE AND PHIL. RIP.
The song ‘Angels Don’t Die,’ was originally written in 1990 for my niece Shardae who tragically passed away at the tender age of six weeks due to sudden infant death syndrome.
Recorded at The Channel View Leisure Centre recording studio. The original song was sung by Senouci. The song was a success and we sold CD’s to help purchase a headstone for Shardae.
Six years later due to demand for the song I met up with co- writers John Lenny and Senouci Hardy and we decided to re-record the song. It was given a modern Rnb style and vocals were performed by Luke Giles and Kate. The song was made into a CD and with the proceeds money was raised for the Foundation for the study of Infant Deaths. The song was also featured on a local television programme and received radio play.
Sadly in March 2010 Shardae’s dad Philip unexpectedly passed away due to a sudden unknown heart defect. He was 45. Philip and Shardae now both rest in peace together in a joint grave in Ely Cemetery.
Wales own soulful Leighton Jones will take the song to the next level- We have plans for Leighton to record it record it- bless Leighton a trully humble talented person xx He wrote this to me-

ANGELS DON'T DIE Wright/Hardy/Lennie
Sometimes then beautiful ones
they leave you.
You've got to learn to love them
while you can, when you can.
sometimes the mighty lord re-takes them
right from under your very hand,
so from birth -from birth
cherish every hour, cherish every hour,
each and every hour.
No little mama don't cry
Angels don't die
You will find yourself
knowing the answers can't be found.
Why is it always the good ones ?
When there's so much wickedness around, all around.
Every now and then
an angel visit's the Earth
to remind us that love is the ultimate power,
so, from the miracle of birth ,
cherish every hour, every moment of every hour.
Little mama don't cry
Angels don't die.
To love, to know, to cry, to hold, to teach ,to learn, to crawl, to walk, to learn to talk, discover games, Angel's don't die.
From birth - cherish every hour no little mama don't cry - Angel's don't die.
Dedicated to Philip and SHARDE
