ABOUT

I am currently 48 years old and have been playing in and out of bands since the mid 80s. Up until the last couple of years it was always original material (this is probably where I am most happy) but more recently have been jamming and rehearsing on some varied covers, and some blues based material too. I find my self liking a wide range of music so would not want to 'slot' myself into any genre. Fair to say that thrash metal is not on my list!
I have written and recorded songs over the years within a band and still enjoy the creative process but also like the rediscovery of a good track to work on as a cover.

Influences

I like most styles of music but most enjoy playing blues, funk, country rock and some jazzy stuff too. I grew up on punk, drifted into classic rock and then my eyes were opened to everything.
My early influences were bands like Judas Priest, Squeeze, Crowded House through to ZZ Top & BB King styles too. Though, over the last few years it has been anything from SRV, Sheryl Crow through to Elbow.
Basically I like anything that is 'good' and gives the listener a good feeling. For me it is very much about the 'song' and the enjoyment within a band.
