Original song 'Looking At Me Now' by Greg Harper, a tribute to the RNLI. 

‘Looking At Me Now’ an original song by Greg Harper, was written as a tribute to the RNLI.

As they celebrate their 200th anniversary in 2024 we would like to dedicate the song to all their crews, staff, volunteers and fundraisers. Thank you all.


She’s a Tamar class, finest ever made

There she falls my friend, down the old slipway

That was me once, standing on the bow

You wouldn’t think it of me

Looking at me now

She’s a Tamar class, built for speed

Two C18, diesel marine

That was me once, working on the prow

You wouldn’t think it of me

Looking at me now

This old blazer, like me, is wearing thin

Can’t stop my hoary hands, trembling

But I’ll fix your gaze, and trade an old man’s grin

If you please my friend, put some money in

She’s a Tamar class, slipping out of view

Just like the younger man, I once knew

That was me once, hard to picture somehow

You wouldn’t think it of me

Looking at me now

You wouldn’t think it of me

Looking at me now

Goodbye Friend. New video... old song... reimagined. 

Greg would love to share with you, a new video, to an old song, Goodbye Friend.

A year ago today he lost Woolly. A dear companion, and friend for nearly 16 years. You might guess that with a name like Woolly… he was a dog! You'd be right. 

The song was originally released in 2009 on an EP called Songs Of Remembrance.

It was written for a human friend, who, throughout the time Greg knew him, never called Greg by his name. He only ever called him ‘friend’.

Greg asked Paul Linale if he would rework the song as a celebration of life in general, and he recorded the song again from scratch, performing and producing all the music, with Greg's new vocal added.

He has done a wonderful job, creating a beautiful, uplifting, moving piece. 

So whether you have shared your life with a dog or not, it doesn't matter.

The song is really about friendship.

Here is to friendship, in all it's forms!

The Fire Inside. The new video. Celebrating the age of steam railways, by way of a true story... 

‘The Fire Inside is wonderfully evocative of the steam age, a lovely song’. East Somerset Railway.

Greg has released a moving video to illustrate his song, The Fire Inside, which is taken from his latest album Vignettes. 

A great uncle of Greg's, William Albert Victor Gladman, fought in WW1. At the outbreak of the war he was serving in the Royal Engineers. In September 1917 he enlisted into the Railway Operating Division, and was then sent to Passchendaele. He survived the war, and later returned to working on trains for the rest of his life, driving the Flying Scotsman service from London to Edinburgh for many years.

Using his story as a background, the song celebrates the age of steam railways, heritage railways, as they have now become. To help keep alive the memories of what was once an important way of life, work, means of travel and communication, for so many people.

We hope you enjoy the sentiments.

The Flying Scotsman celebrates its centenary this year. 

Greg in his great uncle's shoes… the driver's seat of 60103 Flying Scotsman.


Nightingale taken from the album In It Together

We are delighted to share with you a beautiful, moving song Nightingale, which is taken from Greg's 2019 album In It Together. The song is dedicated to nurses, doctors and carers everywhere. Let us hope that the dedication of all our caring professionals at this time, will be remembered, and fairly rewarded, long after the current crisis is over.

"Listen carefully. The words are precious."
