Typical Scottish love story, well maybe not; it's midnight in George Square, Glasgow, two young soon-to-be lovers are sharing a pizza, when out of the darkness comes a punk with a German Shepherd dog straining at the leash...could have gone either way. True story about John's first date with his wife, Susan, way back when. In the genre of a piano ballad, dare we say, this has echoes of the great songwriter Jimmy Webb, and perhaps a shade or two of Paolo Nutini.

10 track album © P 2008. Acoustic guitar based rock seasoned with country, folk and blues. After winning national and international accolades, Weston's latest effort continues to deliver, from the cajun-flavoured 'Whatever Makes You Happy' to the Sheryl Crowesque 'Believe In Yourself' on to the epic self-discovery song 'Welcome Back To Reality'. It continues with 'Let Your Life Begin', revealing shades of Paul Rodgers. Rootstime Europe says Weston's only cover version on the album, 'Waltzing Matilda', '...should be added to the gallery of the greatest'. The music works on screen too, with songs played on Channel 9's 'The Voice Australia. Listen to the album below.

In 2006, after fans of Frontier, John's old UK band, demanded new songs, John and guitarist Brian Cunningham collaborated again to write 'Be Careful What you Wish For'. In the 90's Frontier were signed to Phonogram alongside Texas, Wet Wet Wet, Dire Straits and Robert Plant. After recording with the legendary Steeley Dan producer Gary Katz amongst others, Frontier toured stadiums supporting Wet Wet Wet, released 2 singles and recorded a great album. The band split in 1992 but what makes this collaboration interesting is that Weston was in Australia and Cunningham was in Scotland.
