ABOUT

I Just play and create whatever the mood takes me. From high end distortion, metal overtones to full melodic prog and the solo sound of a guitar played from the heart, from folk melodies to full classical rip off.
I only use my nails to play, so many more textures.....plectrums,, got a few but rarely used, finger pick electric and acoustic, to me is the only way I like to play.
Playing keys and creating my own backing tracks for fun and enjoyment (plenty of patience).
I spend a lot of time, (nearly everyday) in my home studio, sometimes just playing along with various backing tracks to tickling the Ivory's. Using logic pro and MainStage gives a world of choices inc the latest Arturia plugins for MainStage.
Never been one to play covers, adaptations yes , but i would like to work with a songwriter and vocalist poet storyteller. All original no covers at all, paying tribute to the great music and word.
Work with a percussionist and bass player not just as a rhythm section but more as part of the whole. start of nothing and see what the journey takes us all.
Had the privilege to work with some great musicians and been lucky enough to have been mentored for the last couple of years.
Have lots of ideas and really would like to embrace the ideas of others with my own.
Being lucky as to live out in the country i can look upon the outside without anybody looking in, no distractions apart from my dogs, cats and chickens and the wife who smiles at me.
