Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am a guitarist, composer, producer and all-round musician, and have done a few good things in the past... Credit highlights include working with Steve Howe and Jon Anderson of Yes, Glenn Cornick and Clive Bunker of Jethro Tull and Steve Grant of The Sweet. Otherwise I used to tour regularly all over UK and Europe.

Wrote, recorded and produced the 2008 Aquaplanage album, the 2011 Robert Illesh - Golden album, and the 2015 Robert Illesh - To Horsenden album.

Currently on a bit of a hiatus after moving to rural Wales, but looking to get the fingers moving again.
