ABOUT

Guitar, vocals, kitchen sink... Currently writing and recording as The Sway. Previously played (guitar) with Reuben Wilson, The Fantastics, Captain Hammond, and others. Gigged all over UK, and around Europe. Recorded for Freestyle Records, Hammondbeat, Acid Jazz, Soul Cookers..

I seemed to have been involved in a lot of funk, blues, and jazz over the past few years, which I like and am happy to play, but in truth I prefer to mix things up, experiment, see what happens, and avoid any self imposed genres, rules, and limitations..

Looking for paid work and / or anything interesting to be involved in (I know the interesting stuff doesn't usually pay). I'm also considering turning The Sway into a gigging band - if I can find the right people, so get in touch if you think any of this applies to you!

Thanks for reading.
