ABOUT

I'm an experienced, personable player who has moved to the area from the South Coast. I am not a frustrated lead guitarist - I know what the drummer's role in a band is. I am a strong time keeper. I have previously worked semi-professionally, and have lots of live gigging and studio experience gained over the past 30+ years. My first gig was at 16 playing reggae with two friends who grew up in Jamaica.

My individual style has developed over years of playing Soul, Reggae, Ska, World, Celtic, Indie, Punk & Jazz.

I'm interested in a very wide selection of genres. Certainly more than 3!
All music has to have soul, and all musicians need a sense of humour!

I'm looking to make music because it's what I need to do.

EQUIPMENT

My favourite answer to the question "What kit do you play?" is "A black one." But in addition to my Pearl Export, I also have:
Roland TD8 MIDI kit, Roland Octapad & Simmons MIDI kits.
Roland Handsonic MIDI percussion.
All acoustic hand percussion including Congas, Bongos, Djembes, additional toms, shakers, bells, and Tibetan singing bowls.

But LESS is more!
