ABOUT

I am a 27 year old guitar player / composer / arranger, looking for other musicians to collaborate on new and original material. I have recorded demos (minus vox) with drum loops in ableton live and have recently started to develop the songs with a female vocalist. I have plenty of musical ideas to turn into songs.

The music I create and aim to make in the future is within the realm of indie-alternative. I like simple guitar hooks and have a penchant for strings to create atmosphere, think Paul Banks, Interpol and Bernard Butler. I am all for using computer technology if it can be used to enhance the sound both in a live and performance context. I am very open to using prerecorded tracks (i.e. a bass line, synth part or even additional guitar parts) if it means keeping numbers on stage down to a minimum. I’ve never been a fan of overcrowded stages. Plenty of massively successful bands do it.

I have had plenty of live experience playing guitar in other bands and am looking for other musicians with live experience to get involved.

If you are a bass player, guitarist or drummer and like what you've heard please get in contact.

I am also open to contributing to other established projects both in a live and studio full time capacity. If you think I'd be appropriate please let me know.
