ABOUT

Originally a guitar player lead/rhythm/acoustic, I took up bass to help me record my compositions in my own studio. Ended-up being hooked on it and play both guitar and Bass (fretless/Slap etc) to a good standard. I worked for and demo's gear for Yamaha in the 80's and 90's and did some sessions on guitar and bass and for drum machine programming. I also became fairly fluent in the studio and at arranging/producing. Keyboards is a tongue out the side of the mouth job with the sequencer on loop record. Can't sing well but can hold a tune if I don't have to play anything hard at the same time. I have a lot of material some of which has been recorded on old recording systems and I have a number of unrecorded partially completed compositions I wish to collaborate on with other musicians/lyricists/singers. Not short of gear ( 30+ guitars and basses plus contemporary recording and programming technology) I also have a great rehearsal and recording space/acoustic and am available during the day to rehearse, compose, jam etc.
