Welcome to my blog. I’ll be writing here about the adventures of a former Guardian staff journalist striking out on his own after 27 and a 1/2 years. While I get to grips with this new outlet, please take a look here where you can watch the YouTube video to the delightful See that Star and consider buying the first CD made together by Jules Shear and Pal Shazar. Pal tells me it’ll be on Amazon soon but there is a shop on their site. Here’s a piece I wrote for the Guardian’s Old Music blog on a duet, Dreams Dissolve in Tears, from a Jules solo album, The Great Puzzle. My fuller thoughts to follow.
