about

New State of Mind was the first single taken from my EP 'Blown Away'. The Single was released 15/10/2012

Starring in the video is Brentford Football Club's goalkeeper Richard Lee, who just so happens to be my older brother.
The video re-enacts Richard's first season at Brentford where he made a less than glamorous start. Through hard work and having a NEW STATE OF MIND ;) he overcame his difficulties to have a great season.

When writing the song I drew influence from Richard's story as well as using similar personal challenges of my own where I felt in a rut without direction. The song serves as a reminder that you can only achieve great things with a great state of mind.

Richard has put his ideas into a sports psychology book called 'Graduation - Life Lessons of a Professional Footballer'. It's a great read and I thoroughly recommend checking it out.

lyrics

I was down
Wasn't where I'm supposed to be
I have found
The culprit of my misery
I'm my own worst enemy

Every time that I am near
There’s always something that Stops Me

This journey's nowhere to go (Nowhere to go)
A new direction is what I need to Grow
A perfect snapshot in time
A new state of Mind

Words are cheap
It's actions that will reap the seeds
I hold the key
I can shape my destiny

Every time that I am near
There’s always something that Stops Me
I can't be controlled by fear
Only I can shift my beliefs

This journey's nowhere to go (Nowhere to go)
A new direction is what I need to Grow
A perfect snapshot in time
A new state of Mind

I've found the strength to be strong, when all is wrong
Through the thick of the storm I soldier on
To build a life that's all mine
A new state of Mind
