ABOUT

I've recently gotten back into music after taking time out when my son was born. I was playing guitar as a session musician for a funk band until two years ago, and we played quite many live performances of all original material.
I'm now however looking to find the right person or people to start a collaboration to work on new material, with a view to working on production and recording.
While doing pub gigs was fun in the past, they are no longer for me. I'm more interested now in performing specifically in music related events, or investing time in a recording project.
I have also done music production in the past and used to compose elctronic music. I focus now mainly on guitar.

Influences

Seriously too many to mention as I listen to all genres, however as a guitarist Joe Satriani is probably right there at the top along with Al DiMeola, and the late Paco DeLucia. Too many great blues players to mention. As I listen an mimic so many other genres and transfer ideas from other instruments to guitar many influences such as Gerswhin, Miles Davis, Coltrane, etc... might not make much sense but my influences come from everywhere.
Bands I listen to vary from Foo Fighters, Aerosmith, Hendrix to Manic Street Preachers, but I also listen to Jazz, Blues, Funk, Soul, Classical, Folk and Flamenco.
