Many years experience with music and musicians, but a relative newcomer to creating my own songs- I spent too much time teaching other people how to do it!
A newcomer to the area, I'm hoping to meet local musicians and co-operate with them to create recordings and hopefully, a livelier live music scene here on the borders (of Staffs and Cheshire that is!).

From the Everleys to Electronica. Everyone, whether popular or obscure between about 1956 and 2010.
My own songs tend to be basically simple and structured and can be arranged easily as Folk or Country style- though I have a great love of synths, so in practice they hardly ever are.
Good acoustic and electric guitars, fretted and fretless bass, National Lap/console steel guitar.
Recording studio (project studio style).
Doormat Track number: 1 Year: 2006 Album: It Was a Dark and Stormy Night Genre: Other
A song I wrote almost by accident during a jam session. It's great fun to play though and always goes down well live.
I love the South
I love the South Track number: 5 Year: 2006 Album: It Was a Dark and Stormy Night... Genre: Country
A song I wrote after a tour of Kentucky and Tennessee. Sometimes what you know about a place seems very different when you actually go there.
Time Out of Time
Time Out of Time Track number: 1 Year: 2010
One of the great things about being with someone you love during what would normally be working hours, is the feeling that you are taking a little holiday from the daily grind. I call that 'Time out of time'. I was waiting on York station when I saw two oddly matched lovers meeting. That's where this came from.
