ABOUT

Despite the milo' reading I'm still pretty sharp. Have some background being contracted to both Rough trade & Do it records- history now so don't want to rest on such ancient laurels! Much more interested in what I can do now. My timing is still quite cute, voice is also good. Past exploits with T.V personalities & Simply Red pre-cursors 'The Mothmen'. My own writing better than past recorded evidence. Especially interested in writing decent melodies- structure is everything. Currently building decent home studio with a stimulating vibe. Many studios are pretty sterile so spending a lot of time requires a good workspace.Will put a photo up of myself but I'm on wrong damned computer so nothing contemporary on this old beast

Influences

Extremely varied. I have very eclectic taste. Favourites include Steely dan, the Doors, Travis, Jackson Browne, Chilli Peppers a decent amount of alt' country, americana, love pedal steel guitar, classical & twelve string, Jazz, lounge, bossa nova from Brazil's glory years, Classical, choral, orchestral, some electronica- Kraftwerk, Lemon jelly etc etc. I'll pull anything aboard if I think I can do something with it. I especially like good harmony singing- its just not many folk know how to do it well these days- a crying shame.
