ABOUT

I sing and play flute (although not usually at the same time;-)
Ideally, I would love to be performing regularly in a functions duo or or rock/pop/r&B/folk rock/tribute band at least once a month - more would be great.

I sing and write my own music so would love to perform that too.

I have experience of singing rock, folk, jazz, etc and recording my own original material in a professional studio, I also enjoy recording covers on Garageband for fun and practice.

I've got to sing and play a with a wide range of musicians from different backgrounds via folk sessions, but I love playing all kinds of music. I've been lucky enough to play with highly skilled, intuitive and talented musicians from a wide range of backgrounds from classical, rock, folk, acoustic, jazz etc so I really appreciate how valuable it is to be able to busk and improvise.

Flute: I can read music but play flute by ear (it's quicker and easier;-) and can play pretty much whatever I want to play. But I particularly love playing jazz flute when i can - e.g Van Morrison's Moondance.
