I'm a Singer-Songwriter who loves playing live and recording original songs on my Boss Micro-BR 4-track. My style is mainly acoustic, with some rock, psychedelia and blues thrown into the mix. My main aim though is to write great songs, no matter what the style. It's a magic formula you really have to work at (unless you're Burt Bacharach, Jimmy Webb or Brian Wilson...).

All the songs I post are predominately written and played by me, but I'm lucky to have worked with some great musical collaborators including Mike Fife, James Higgins, Marcelo Prive, Mike McGrath, Dave Berry, Mark Ros, and Bodie Sickler. Thanks guys!

I'm also guitarist & co-songwriter in the band Jemima's Kite, with James Higgins, Mike Fife and Geir Alfsen. We're currently working on our 6th album.

Thanks for looking and listening!
Why this name?
It's my name!
Do you play live?
Pubs & Local Festivals in and around Surrey. I love playing live - just me and my acoustic.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It gives unsigned artists an opportunity to have their work listened to and commented upon. It can also lead to global collaborations with other like-minded musicians. Our band 'Jemima's Kite' were formed in exactly this way.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yep - if they'd have me!

Anything else...?
"I AM here, and it DOES make sense. I came back to 1955 with the
you from 1985 to get a book back from Biff. So once we got the book
back, you...that is the YOU from 1985...were in the DeLorean when it
got struck by lightning and you got sent back to 1885!"

"1885? It's a very interesting story, Future Boy, but
there's one little thing that doesn't make sense. If the me in the
future is now in the past, how could you possibly know about it?"
