ABOUT

I've played in cover bands since the age of 16, written and recorded a lot of original material over the years and have worked with signed artists/been in a signed band. Very high standard of guitar playing, grew up with blues and rock but can cover country, rockabilly and some jazzy extensions of the above styles. Basic keyboard skills too, especially Hammond style. Professional attitude and great selection of pro equipment to cover any gig. Willing to travel for the right band. I have great collection of vintage style guitars and several valve amps and my voice is powerful with a good range. I'm also a good performer with charisma and a decent bloke to get along with.


I'm wanting to join or form a band for gigs around Sussex, Surrey and the South East of England. I'm looking for tasteful melodic players to work up original material and high quality cover versions based around the influences below. A high level of musicianship is essential. Players with good vocal abilities would be preferred.

I live & work in Epsom Surrey.
