ABOUT

I am a singer, guitarist (acoustic and electric) and bass player, and I also write songs. I love all sorts of music (from classical through jazz and folk to blues, reggae, pop, rock and metal), but I guess the core of my musical taste is the Heavy Rock / Progressive Rock of the 1970s.

I played in bands and solo a fair bit in my youth, but then for a long time my day job constrained my ability to put enough commitment into musical projects – limiting me to home recording and performing at jam nights rather than joining or forming a band. Now, though, I find myself able to devote myself to music in a more dedicated way, and want to take that opportunity to do as much as I can.

Influences

I find it hard to distinguish "influences" from music I like. I like a wide range of music, but there's plenty of it that probably doesn't directly influence me - e.g. Shostakovich, Miles Davis, Bob Marley, Blondie, Kate Bush, Gong, Opeth.

So, for "influences", I should probably list artists more in the Classic/Progressive/Heavy Rock area - like the following (although the list would probably be different if I did this again on another day): Black Sabbath, Camel, Deep Purple, Free, Genesis, Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pink Floyd, Rainbow, Rush, Thin Lizzy, UFO, Whitesnake, ZZ Top.
