I have been composing and recording my own music since 1998, and I started the Ormond Project in 1999. After years of practicing and transcribing the licks and solos of Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, Buddy Guy, David Gilmour and others, I realized one day that I had my own voice. This was a good thing; because I could not remember the licks I had learnt when it was time to
solo. I love playing; writing, recording and seeing ideas come together. I find myself constantly thinking of things to add to a song hoping to make it interesting, be it lyric or sound. Fellow musicians and fans have described my playing as smooth. My favorite guitar is a Sixties Reissue Fender Stratocaster. I also have an Ibanez I use for a fatter, hotter, rock sound. My favorite amplifier tones are Fender, Marshall, and Mesa Boogie. My musical goals are to have fun, be original, and provide your ears with something a little different. Hope you like the sounds.
