I'm Not Around

by Danny Widdicombe & Trichotomy



Built from the country/blues/folk foundations of ARIA nominated songwriter Danny Widdicombe (from the Wilson Pickers) and merging with the harmonic and melodic versatility of the award-winning jazz trio Trichotomy, this group consists of Danny Widdicombe (vocals/guitar), Sean Foran (piano/keyboards), John Parker (drums) and Samuel Vincent (bass).
With both Widdicombe and Trichotomy bringing a history of performances around the world to this project, the distinctive sound of Widdicombe’s storytelling and Trichotomy’s intuitive improvising creates an engaging blend of sonic tapestries. Widdicombe’s steel string guitar and earthy vocals the perfect match for the piano, bass, drums and their intimate interplay. Featuring a suite of songs by Widdicombe, and lush improvising from all musicians, the music is a delight for lovers of jazz, folk, country, experimental music and everything in-between. Musically cohesive and detailed, yet accessible to an array of audiences.


Started out with the best intentions
To make the world feel good
Celebrating happiness
Just like we should
But the tide washed me away
The river dragged me down
It’s better for everyone
If I’m not around
I wish I was a charm
Full of luck
But all I ever do is harm
The people I love
There’s no cure or philosophy
That can be found
It’s better for everyone
If I’m not around
Sorry if I lost my way
I didn’t want to let you down
The evil in my heart outweighs
Any good that can be found
Think of all the money spent
Making me well
There’s just no argument
I’m a living hell
It doesn’t matter where I turn
Coming up or down
It’s better for everyone
If I’m not around
