ABOUT

I´ve recently arrived in Manchester and I´m looking for like-minded and competent musicians with eclectic tastes to start playing, writing, recording and gigging as soon as possible.
I play fingerstyle guitar on both acoustic and electric and enjoy writing as well as contributing to and playing other people´s material. I´d be equally happy playing with a singer-songwriter in a folk/Americana duo or playing electric in a full band playing something far louder, what´s most important is that I´m playing with musicians of a good standard whose influences overlap somewhere with my own.
