Welcome to Kimbustion
May 20216 - Well its a busy season here on Skye and Jon's song writing is suffering with lack of time and lack of energy! Saying that he's laying down a couple of new tracks in between his other commitments !
Jan 2015 - Jon has moved and now lives on the Isle of Skye where he and his wife set up a Bed and Breakfast. "Its lovely because we see Dolphins and Minke whales regularly". If you fancy a break and want to see some great Scottish wildlife, why not pay him a visit and have a chat about conservation issues music or the myths and legends of Skye see www.highbeechhouse.co.uk
Jon is now working on a number of new songs with his Scottish friends and influences. Kimbustion is well and truly "open for business". Does your Wildlife/Conservation production needing some royalty free backing tracks? Do you need a bespoke song or theme tune. Talk to Jon. If its worth doing and its a good cause it will cost you zero!!!! (well may be a pint: )
"There are a few more songs which haven't been sung, (that are still swimming around my head!) which need working out. Whilst Taji, the Faros, Iceland and Japan continue to slaughter endangered and sentient whales and dolphins, we can never rest. They must not be allowed to continue. The Oceans are not infinite anymore. We need to look after them, their eco-systems and their beautiful inhabitants".

The song is available for free download from our Discography page - "Share a Breath with the Dolphins" Thanks to Mark and Ric - Save Japan Dolphins and the Earth Island Institute, Paul and Debbie Huxtable - Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary, S Kirby at Southwest.com, and Atmo at Wildquest in the Caribbean.
