ABOUT

AMERICANA / ALT ROCK
Guitarist/ singer based in Leigh on Sea, Essex. Really looking to establish a wider collective of musicians with a core of regular band members. Drawn towards Americana with a punk/ alt rock influence, aiming to write fresh material, and to develop specific pieces according to whatever players are on board. Dead serious about the music, but want to make people feel mischievous and fired up.

Influences

Alabama 3 are an obvious comparison, although not looking to clone them. Vaguely Americana, American versions of art-rock, beyond that, really, anything goes, no limits - there could be anything else in the mix, powerful and passionate. Punk and Grunge are a big influence, and I like 4AD ethereal pop. Also like The Mummers, Nanci Griffith, Lucinda Williams, REM, Bowie, Eno, Fripp.
