I am a musician, novelist and a generally creative sort. Self taught at everything, learning by making mistakes. I am always looking for inspiration from talented singers and writers. All my tracks are recorded from a home studio and unless otherwise stated, it's me playing the instruments.

LV 426 (Unfinished track - needs vocals)
LV 426 (Unfinished track - needs vocals)Okay, this is an unfinished track which needs some vocal input but everything else is kind of there. It has some good effects and some samples courtesy from James Cameron's film 'Aliens'. Pretty heavy and of course, a whacked out guitar solo.
Men Are From Mars, Women are from Venus Part 2 (Demo from love.com - The Musical)
Men Are From Mars, Women are from Venus Part 2 (Demo from love.com - The Musical)Another track from love.com. Jo Hare sings and wrote the vocal melody and adapted my lyrics. It's an interesting tune in that it has no structure (ie verse, chorus, verse etc). It is like a story in that respect and ever changing.
Lydia's Love Island (Demo from Love.com - The Musical)
Lydia's Love Island (Demo from Love.com - The Musical)A fun track from Love.com, the unfinished musical. Lydia is a flighty dreamer and seems to think that her dream lover is a few clicks away on an Internet dating site. Interesting points are the steel drums which instantly gives this track a Caribbean feel. Jo Hare sings and also wrote the vocal melody and adapted my lyrics.
Lydia's Winter Fairytale (Demo from Love.com - The Musical)
Lydia's Winter Fairytale (Demo from Love.com - The Musical)Another demo from Love.com. A cute track with lots of bells. I'm not much of a piano player and an interesting part of this track is the dissonance of the piano part which mainly stems from the fact that i drew the notes into the project instead of physical playing it. It works though :) Joanne Hare sung and wrote the vocal melody and changed my lyrics to suit. She has such a pure voice which really suits this song.
Now Is The Time (Demo from Love.com - The Musical)
Now Is The Time (Demo from Love.com - The Musical)Another song from Love.com. As with other tracks, Laura sings and wrote the vocal melody and lyrics. She is singing a duet including the male parts due to lack of male singing talent! I tried to sing the male parts but the results were pitiful! I like this track, it was not intended for the musical but uses a bunch of native American Indian samples which gives it a mystical feel (Originally called The Sun, the Moon and The Stars). If you are a male singer and would like to have a go at finishing off these tracks, give me a shout.
The Webmaster (Demo from Love.com - The Musical)
The Webmaster (Demo from Love.com - The Musical)This is a darker track from my musical that never recieved any vocals. It's about the dark powers that the main character wields as he discovers the Internet for the first time. I'd love to finish this track as I love the eighties synth feel - any ideas anyone?
A Girl Like Me (Demo from Love.com - The Musical)
A Girl Like Me (Demo from Love.com - The Musical)Another song from my unfinished musical. This time, Jo Hare sings beautifully the 'ugly duckling' song.
There Must Be Someone Out There (Demo from Love.com - The Musical)
There Must Be Someone Out There (Demo from Love.com - The Musical)This is the title track from Love.com, my unfinished musical. Unfinished mainly because I could not find the male singing talent required to complete my demos. In this track, Laura McMahon sings all the parts both male and female. She is a talented byotch of whom I am very jealous. I think you will get the quirky gist of the musical - one day I will finish it.
The FuryI just found this track that I recorded way back when I had a fascination with playing guitar like I was squeezing out a turd shaped like a pineapple. Sonically, it's an abomination. I was in love with a new effect and boy did I use it! It's not as bad as I remembered it so I have shared it with the world!
Inside The Machine (Unfinished)
Inside The Machine (Unfinished)This is a track which I co wrote with Laura Anya and Colin Harrison. I never quite finished it, mainly because I wanted to do a ridiculous guitar solo over the second half of the song but I can never come up with anything worthy enough.
Song for Clara
Song for ClaraAs you can probably tell, I was feeling pretty low when I recorded this but when i listen to it now i think of winter and the beauty of nature. It's sombre but always tinged with hope.
Lipstick Ballistic (Demo from Love.com - The Musical)
Lipstick Ballistic (Demo from Love.com - The Musical)A demo mix of one of the tracks from my unfinished rock musical, Love.com. Love.com, a story of two tragically inept lovers, two hopelessly dysfunctional people, searching for love, yearning for meaning, desperate for some bedroom action! It's quirky and it's a shame I never got around to finishing it. I do have all the tracks recorded, some with guide vocals and this is one of them.
TheExperimentThis is my radio play, The Experiment. I wrote and scored it following work with visually impaired kids. Some very talented and helpful people voiced the characters and offered their time and skill for free. It was aired on internet radio but I found the file after all this time and thought i would share it with the world. The story would later be used in part for my novel, Necrocide. (Which is available from all good book stores!) Credits - Colin Harrison - co-wrote some of the music Simon Nuckley, Sarah Parnell and Jeroen Aarts offered their voice talent
Seven Years Ago
Seven Years AgoAnother collaboration with Laura who wrote the lyrics, melody and sang.
The Fool Is You
The Fool Is YouI wrote this track many moons ago and my good pal Laura wrote the lyrics, melody and sang the vocals. I remixed this a couple of years ago. I like it except the drum loops are a bit shaky!
Hard Rock Idea 160116
Hard Rock Idea 160116Just wrote this track - needs some kind of vocal input but I may resort to just laying over some guitar widdle. Always open to ideas and collaborations if anyone fancies doing something with this!
