Flaxton is a collaboration that started in 2008 between Nick Schinder and Jacqui Doherty.
We are now called - Deep River Running.
Below is a little of our history and info about some of the other artist's that Jacqui (Flaxton) has written songs with.
Lyricist Jacqueline Doherty, aka Claudia Flaxton published Poet with the International Society of Poets. Photographer, Diploma 04.
After a number of years writing screenplays and poetry for fun, she decided to take her poems and turn them into songs.
She set to work with artists that could add melody to her words, Nick being the one with whom she has worked the most, up to the point where they can now call themselves a creative duo.
Professional Songwriter Nick Schinder,
songwriter/singer/keyboard/guitar/producer/world citizen, aka The Child (his long time band and alter ego).
Nick has won several contests around the world, travelled and gigged all around Latin America and Europe, and released 4 albums with The Child, apart from contributing to countless projects with his playing and songs.
And before our above incarnation I collaborated with different artists we created many songs, each with a different sound & vibe.
I have been recording mainly with Nick Schinder since 2008 & other artists since November 2007. The first song I ever wrote was back in that November prior to that I had mainly been writing poetry.
I still write poerty, a sample of my work can be found on Myspace. I intend to upload some spoken word projects on Our Stage soon.
I have uploaded some photo's of the artist's that I've collaborated with too, have a peek at my photo gallery.
I hope you like our work!
