ABOUT

I'm an experienced and versatile guitarist, vocalist and mandolin player and songwriter who has recently moved to London for personal reasons. So - another roll of the dice!

I've spent the last eight years fronting Eat The Rich, a folk-punk band based in Devon doing private functions, festivals and clubs/pubs. I'm now looking to play/tour regularly with good, committed musicians preferably doing a mixture of original material and some covers that are really buggered about with! I leave the ego on stage and am happy either putting something new together or joining an existing band/project/ensemble.

What I really get off on is crossover that brings out the best in various musical styles. Updated November 2011.

Influences

Guitar - Pete Townshend is my guitar hero for the sheer passion he brings to it. And Johnny Marr for the melody.
Mandolin - Ry Cooder & Deacon Dale Reno
Vocals - I've worked hard at developing my own voice but have probably incorporated lots of other singers' styles without even knowing it!
