ABOUT

Hello, I'm a versatile and experienced guitarist up for most things, lots of experience touring and recording, having gained a Platinum record this year. However that project seems to be coming to a close. Ideally would like to join a band looking for lead guitar - particularly in a good blues or rock & roll vein - but I also do fingerstyle folk and would be up for fun jazz - nothing too esoteric. Definitely like to meet good and serious musicians - not that I'm a serious guy - good music, laughs and gigs all heartily encouraged.

I'm not a real expert on mandolin or banjo but can do a bit of finger-picking blue-grass on the banjo (see my audio samples) and add some flavour with mandolin (bluegrass and Irish styles) if it were that type of set up - recently added Ukulele to my list of instruments I'm not great at but can bang out a tune on. Guitar's definitely my main instrument.

really like to form/join smallish band preferably with someone on bluesy keys. even a 3 piece or something - less to go wrong, takes up less room in pubs, easier to set up and get a decent mix. - not only looking for this but if a singer keys player is interested let me know - we'd be maybe only need a bit of percussion to get up and running.
