Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am currently playing guitar and keyboards in an alt metal / prog / electronic band (Above The Dream).

Also currently involved with a couple of semi dormant projects more into the fusion genre.

The song here is from one of my dormant fusion bands (Silver Dune). It’s only the V1 demo and the real song, when completed, will be a lot better.

The video is from my current band, where I’m playing guitar, lap steel (& additional keys on the recording). In this band, I play keys on half of the material & guitar on the other half, sometimes mixing both in the same songs

I prefer to play either guitar or keyboards than the other instruments I can play. Lap Steel is also cool. I play all these in my fusion bands as well other instruments as required.

I'm not interested in playing bass or drums as I am far happier on guitar &/or keys. Please don’t contact me to play these instruments as I will decline.

I’m pretty open style and genre wise, but covers are a definite NO for me - only original material please. I will also decline anything where covers are involved.

I prefer complex music over simple. That said, there is an art to play something complex, but to make it sound easy for the listener. That's also what I can do. It also depends on the vibe.

I am not your typical genetic player and have my own sound. I’m self taught, so not influenced by any music teacher.

I’m a prolific songwriter with the music and melody side being more my thing than lyrics as I don’t sing.

I can play over 10 instruments, including some I don't own.

I don’t have a lot of spare time for much else as I am already committed with the current bands, but if there is something that I simply can’t refuse, then at least ask me first.

I am open to paid sessions.

I have access to a lot of venues as my wife is one of the top promotors. This includes venues all around the UK and beyond as well as festivals.

Influences

I am influenced by many artists and listen to everything from heavy metal to classical. However, my main preference is jazz rock, jazz funk and fusion.

My style works in the metal band as I’m still playing as a fusion player. That actually suits the music and makes it more unique.

Guitarists I am particularly influenced by would be (not in any sort of order):
Allan Holdsworth, Scott Henderson, Frank Gambale, Wayne Krantz, Robben Ford, Frank Zappa, John McLaughlin, Shawn Lane, Hiram Bullock, Mike Stern, Jeff Beck, John Scofield & Steve Hillage (plus loads more).

Keyboard players (again, not in any sort of order):
Russell Ferrante, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Jan Hammer, Joe Sample, Jordan Rudess, Keith Emerson, Eddie Jobson, Dave Stewart, Tigran Hamasyan, Shawn Lane, Jason Rubello, Alan Pasqua, Carla Bley, Don Airey, Scott Kinsey, Steve Hunt, Joe Zawinul, Gary Husband & Cory Henry (plus loads more).

EQUIPMENT

Pro guitar rig, guitars - (6 & 12 string - electrics and acoustics - mainly USA Fender - (Strat’s & Tele’s) & Gibson - (various Les Paul’s), with a few others thrown in for good measure including a custom built 6 & 12 string electric double neck. USA Ovations and Yamaha acoustics.

My amps are Mesa Boogie and Marshall rack amps with some rack effect units.

I have 3 pedal boards - the very big one was professionally built, the medium one is under construction and a flight friendly mini board.

Everything I have uses top end effect pedals. The largest 2 boards run using RJM switchers as there are a lot of midi involved.

I also own a lap steel, mandolin, bass, trumpet, stage piano, loads of synths (Nord, Prophet, Moog’s, Hydrasynth, ARP, Dreadbox, Korg, Yamaha & Roland).

I run Logic 11 on a 2023 MacBook Pro (highest spec Apple offered at the time of purchase) with a Nektar control surface. I change my computer every 2 years and always go for their highest spec model.

I have a decent interface and desk as I use a lot of channels.

I have loads of microphones - far too many things to list.
I have flight cases for most of my keyboards.
I have a big car too.
