Biography

The main station of the music journey began at "Indigoecho" prior to that there were a few songs with bands here and there but "Indigoecho" is where the train gathered momentum. I have always been interested in writing songs about the whole of life, love, trust, hope, culture, work and faith. This journey has been shaped by my christian faith which gives me a freedom to write about a whole load of things. Indigoecho made 2 albums "one" and "Illuminate" both available on ITUNES and other places. "Indigoecho" pulled into the station for the last time a few years ago and we all got off the train in an amicable way we even meet up now and then to recall the good old days. The next station for me was "The mystery tent" this was a collection of songs that look at who we trust? what it means to be human? what does it mean to be in control? and out of control? can God sing over us? and how does he speak to us today? The CD was produced by Graeme Duffin and Sandy Jones. It involved a collective of musicians and a different sound came out of this station of the journey. I often play these songs as part of my work with students as I believe the songs act as a mirror - they reflect the good and bad aspects of out human condition. So what was the next station? The next station came after a bit of a refurbishment. After a few trials in life a collection of songs began to rise up. Using some psalms and other creative writings from the bible "you are with me" was brought into service The songs reflect God's faithfulness to us - even when we don't sense it, feel it or when we do sense it, we can know that God is faithful and he is with us. The songs reflect the truth that we are free in christ and that he never changes even if we or the world we live in does. The album has already been a real help to those in the midst of trials and to those needing to know the comfort and love of God. It is available at ITUNES and kingsway. It is great to be able to go into universities, pubs, venues and churches and play the mixture of songs. further contact for info or booking at themysterytent@btinternet.com or http://www.facebook.com/cliveparnell Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/parney

Lyrics

Serenade

Written By: Clive Parnell

Your feeling tired
and all you want to do
is rest your weary soul

But you don't know which way
to turn
so you rest your weary soul

You serenade me
You serenade me
You serenade me, with your love

Your trying to swim
through these waves
just to get through to
the other side

your trying to sail
through this storm
just to get through to the other side

You serenade me
You serenade me
You serenade me, with your love

your Love is patient, your love is kind
it knows no record of wrong
Love is patient is kind
it will not envy,
love is patient,
your love is kind
it will not do you no harm
your love

You serenade me
You serenade me
You serenade me, with your love
