There were two albums ("Images Of Heaven"/ "Dance Emotions", "Correspondence") plus a Peter Godwin compilation that also featured new material ("Images Of Heaven- The Best Of Peter Godwin)- and some more hits across over 50 countries. Meanwhile, I enjoyed a parallel career as a songwriter- and I produced some other artists along the way too, including many I wrote for. I wrote for and with a variety of international artists including Steve Winwood, David Bowie (see above), Reggie Magloire (Technotronic, Indeep), Duncan Browne, Georg Kajanus (Sailor, Data), Camouflage, Michel Van Dyke (Ruben Cossani), Petia Pavlova, Ronny, Nathalie Gabay and The Drifters. "Love Is A Shield", which I co-wrote with Camouflage, reached #9 in the German singles chart in 1989 and stayed there for over six months. It was also a hit in Argentina. It had further success when it was featured in the 1994 American movie "Twogether", which starred Nick Cassavetes. I co-wrote two albums with Michel Van Dyke (now in the successful German band Ruben Cossani): "Reincarnated" and "Kozmetika".
The single "She Comes At The End Of The Day" was a big hit for Michel in Germany in 1993. In 2008 I co-wrote all the songs on the latest Steve Winwood album "Nine Lives", which reached #12 in the Billboard US Album Chart and charted in the UK and Europe too. The single from "Nine Lives", "Dirty City", featured Eric Clapton on guitar. I was introduced to Steve by Johnson Somerset, my partner in Nuevo, my latest adventure- which you can hear and download here. Johnson Somerset has written for and with Karl Wallinger (World Party), Shara Nelson (Massive Attack), Holly Valance, Ramshackle, Grey Cloud Zombie, Shadow Creepers and ... Nuevo. He has co-produced albums by Bryan Ferry, Steve Winwood, William Topley and Shara Nelson (of Massive Attack) amongst others.
He has created numerous remixes for many major artists including Duran Duran, George Michael and Mutya, Bryan Ferry, The Sugababes and Simple Minds. Johnson has also written and produced his own band projects, Grey Cloud Zombie, Shadow Creepers and Ramshackle. Nuevo also features the extraordinary Spanish vocalist Amanecer Sierra on the duet "Milonga Moon". Amanecer also creates some magical vocal backdrops and improvisations around my lead vocals on seven other tracks.
Amanecer is a trained opera singer but has also sung trip hop, electro-jazz, blues and son cubano. And so the dream continues and remains the same.. To make music with passion, originality and soul.. To take it to the world. Embrace Nuevo and maybe together we can seduce that mainstream! Read more on Last.fm.
