The first song I wrote with David is called “Everyday People”:
Here is our second co-written song:
Our third song, “She’s So Entertaining”, was re-recorded by David for his “Soulful Spirit” album. Here is our original version:
Our fourth song, “Until The Next One Comes Around”, uses a chord sequence I wrote back in the 80’s!
Our tribute to Prince – “The Most Beautiful Girl In The World”
Our tribute to Frankie Beverley & Maze:
A classic Motown song:
I co-wrote this song back in the 80’s with Bill Spencer:
I wrote the melody and lyrics for this next tune to a chord sequence played by Jim Mullen. Damon Butcher plays the piano, Winston Blissett plays the bass guitar and Blair Cunningham plays the drums. I play the cowbell – and the lead guitar from which I developed the vocal melody!:
I came up with lyrics to one of Ernest Ranglin’s tunes – “These Times”. David sang this and played piano. Lyn Dobson played the flute, Otto Williams played the bass and Dylan Howe played the drums:
David ‘DaPaul’ Philips plays keyboards and sings lead and backing vocals on this recording of “Famous Faces” – a song I co-wrote with Keith O’Connell, Gee Bello and Jim Hawkins way back in 1981.
I have produced two versions of this song I co-wrote for Light of the World back in 1981, both featuring David on vocals – “No. 1 Girl” Soul-Jazz version and “Number One Girl” Reggae version:
I co-wrote this song with Gee and Nat from “Light of the World”, Keith O’Connell and Jim Hawkins:

I co-wrote the next three songs with Steve Jerome:
I co-wrote this song with Winston Sela:
I wrote the following two songs many moons ago with my old friend Justin Freeman:

I co-wrote this song with Steven Jeffries back in 1981. It was one of the first songs I brought to my then-new publisher, Chappell Music, around the end of that year. Quite recently, Chappell returned the copyrights to all my old songs – apart from three that were relatively successful and continue to earn royalties. So I have been re-recording or improving the demos since then. The lyrics to this song, written by Steve Jeffries, seem quite prophetic, with hindsight!
