ABOUT

Classically trained to grade 6 piano. Then threw the books away and learnt how to play blues (should’ve done both). Wrote loads of songs with a mate, got publishing deal, went pro, got close but not “retirement income level” gigged in numerous covers bands to good standard...now just want to rock/funk hard but couldn’t care less about the reward. Don’t want jam band, want fun but structure and need musos who learn something once and can re-produce and enhance without reminders of what 3rd chord is. I’m no master but I’ve walked around ze block.
