ABOUT

I am an experienced Musician/Songwriter and multi instrumentalist with a background in Symphonic/Melodic/Power Metal and more recently I have been hugely influenced by the Swedish metal scene. I'm currently in 2 bands: A Melodic Metal band 'Karma's Puppet' and An African drumming Troupe 'Kontaani'

My musical skills are predominantly based around rhythm as I started as a drummer and picked up other elements to aid with song writing. I have a real interest in adopting different grooves, time signatures and using creative dynamics in writing.

Having returned to drums after a few years away from it, it'd be great to do something with that and get back to my roots. I'd also like to work in collaboration with some of my own material in the hopes of putting out some personal releases.

I've been dabbling in home recording for 3 or 4 years and would be good to start pushing that and releasing some more material. I have a modest but effective home studio set up.
