SEEKINGVocalist, Lead Guitar, Keyboard.
Self taught, been playing all my life. Have an extensive Premier XPK kit with Zildjian cymbals. Have an electronic kit too. Gig mainly in the Denbighshire, Fflintshire, Chester area. Would enjoy being part of a band that likes to take on a challenge or two in the set list instead of relying on the dated old standards that a few bands insist on playing. Currently drumming for Spitfire Twitch who are looking for a lead guitarist. Get in touch if you are interested.

Five Track number: 14 Year: 1999 Album: Fear Of Fours Genre: Other
The time code of this track doesn't follow 4:4 time. The first time I tried to drum along to it really confused me, but with patience I managed to follow it. I love the haunting keyboard sounds at the start of the track, and as the music builds up it becomes an incredible sound of accoustic bass and drums intermingled with electronic effects. You may recognise it as the theme to one of the BBC Ray Mears Survival programmes.
Nothing New Under The Sun
Nothing New Under The Sun Track number: 1 Year: 2012 Album: Map Of The Floating City Genre: Other
I love Thomas Dolby's work, and after 15 years away he came back with an incredible album of songs that seemed to reflect his entire career. This song pokes fun at the way the music industry seems to be at the moment. I get the feeling it was written with Simon Cowel in mind. (its all about the money not the talent) Everyone is looking for the next Adele or One Direction but no one seems to be looking in the pubs and student bars for the originality of the bands that frequent these places. We don't really need another Adele but I'm sure there are many bands out there that could do with a bit of attention.
