ABOUT

I recently moved to the UK, was previously a touring musician, MD and producer. Singing is what I’m best at but I’m also a serious player and can do both at the same time.

I’m looking for interesting work: sessions, touring and producing etc. I can play just about anything (except drums) and I am reasonably versatile when it come to style. I will play covers if that’s the only work around but would find something that requires some creativity a lot more inviting.

Currently I’m going through a phase developing my pedal steel playing (Western Swing style) so something I could use that in would be enticing.

I would really like to put together a small Rockabilly (or even Rock and Roll) combo with like minded people, this would be with a view to recording and touring original music. And also blending in some electronic sounds and samples etc to keep it current and interesting.

Influences

I don’t really know where to start. I listen to everything but have a special like for jangly (and twangy) guitars. Anything with an acoustic foundation, or some emotional connection is always fun. I’m not really a true country guy but everything I produce sounds like it came out of Nashville. I spent about 25 years playing solid blues and can fake Jazz when I have to but it’s not a comfortable place for me, however, jazz harmony rocks and I love to find ways to include complex voicings into whatever I’m doing to add some colour.

I like the art and music that is created any time cultures collide, like the original Rockabilly scene, a lot of Muscle Shoals and Motown stuff where you have ethnically mixed bands, or Gracelands, or even the modern mixed up stuff like Old Town Road. Anything that takes music in a new direction is good in my book..
