Have you performed in front of an audience?
Occasionally. But now I am studio based as I work as a songwriter rather than a performer - although I do perform, record and produce all the material I write.
Your musical influences
A wide range of styles, artists, producers and songwriters: Paul Rodgers (Free/Bad Company), Deep Purple, Steely Dan, The Kinks (Ray Davies), Gerry Rafferty, Fleetwood Mac, Traffic, Spencer Davis Group, Cream, all the Motown and Stax artists & songwriters, Nile Rodgers, Paul Simon, Gallagher & Lyle, George Martin (producer). Many soul and blues artists and TV/movie soundtrack composers. Chopin, Beethoven and St. Saens. The list is endless...
What equipment do you use?
All kinds of equipment: Electric and acoustic instruments, recording hardware - digital recorders, computers, even occasionally tape recorders & DAT machines. Outboard units (effects/reverb, compressors, EQ units, mixers, pre-amps etc). Different kinds of software. Some very old gear, some very new stuff, ranging across most manufacturers....it depends on what type of music I'm working on.
