Joined Up Writing – a Lockdown collaboration

Tuesday, November 24th, 2020

Back in May during the first lockdown, local North East poet Fin Hall came up with a novel idea to while the days away. He asked people to contribute to a poem called ‘Joined Up Writing’. Anyone could contribute to this from novices to hobbyists to published poets and indeed published songwriters. The idea was to use a word from the last line of the previous verse in the first line of your verse and so it went on, ‘Joined Up Writing’. I contributed a verse amongst 100 different voices.

Amazingly, Fin ran with this, secured publishing and it’s now available to purchase on Amazon. Even better, the proceeds of the book are going to Fin’s chosen charity; Willows Animal Sanctuary up in Fraserburgh, Scotland:

So, if anyone fancies adding a wee bit of local collaborative lockdown poetry as a Christmas stocking filler all in the name of charity then please grab a copy at the below link:

Edgar Allan Poets – Single Review

Tuesday, November 17th, 2020

Thank you to Edgar Allan Poets for their kind review on my new single:


“Clyne’s music immediately reminds you of Bob Dylan, fantastic lyrics and folk sounds.
The Production is of the highest level and you feel like listening to the artist live, near a fire at sunset.
The melodies and the amalgam of sounds make you immediately dream of the Scottish Highlands where William Wallace once fought and lived.
I got thirsty listening to Clyne’s music, beer and especially whisky are the best company while listening to these wonderful songs.
His kind of music varies between alternative, folk, country and rock and each song can surprise you by adding a new element.
We are talking about a musician of the highest level, you can tell by the quality of the chords progression and the sound quality of his albums.
Fantastic discovery that we must suggest to all of you!”
