- Writer/bassist/rhythm guitarist originally from Derry.

- 15 year's experience in various styles of rock, blues and acoustic music, both live and in the studio, with click tracks or samples - and a special knack for writing and playing original music.

- Good level of technical ability, solid theory, a good voice and a way with a lyric.

- I learn fast and my ear's second to none, so if you've got any ideas give me a shout and we'll see about putting something together.
