ABOUT

Drummer primarily, also play guitars & keys.
Can write, arrange, engineer and produce.
Available for session and band work, over 20 years experience.

I have recently released an album, Abandoned Buildings, which has 18 tracks following an emotional arc telling of grace against a backdrop of falling in love and failing in love. It features rock, pop, folk, funk, electro, classical and minimalist stylings, with guest solos from John Hackett (flautist brother of ex-Genesis guitar legend Steve) and Raul D'Oliveira (trumpet with Elton John, George Michael, Mike Oldfield, Joan Armatrading). See http://duncanparsons.roughdraftaudio for details and sound samples.
