I am primarily a guitar player and songwriter. I have my own project studio setup at home where I record and produce my own recordings. I am working in leading UK funk band, FUNKSHONE, (http://www./pages/FUNKSHONE/8260062157) but am also looking to collaborate with other musicians and songwriters for gigs and recording. To me, music is music. Nothing is taboo... If I dig it, I dig it. Simple. Distance not really an issue as I currently do a weekly 180 mile round trip for rehearsals. If it's worthwhile it's worth the effort :-)
