By 2006 he was missing being involved in music and had started writing again. Having gone back to the Country music he was brought up on, he recorded his first self-penned album Onwards in 2007, and started to perform shows around the UK.
In 2010 he recorded his second self-penned album When The Music Stops, with one track Far And Wide being a co-write with Scottish songwriter Mark Kearns.
