Big Sleep is all the music that I create with my friend and musical collaborator, Tony Webster (Tony is pictured on the right in the photo; me on the left in the dark blue suit).
Tony is an artist / illustrator, writer of lyrics and stories, song arranger and a mine of information on any subject under the sun . . .
I (David A Briggs) play all the instruments (mostly of the stringed variety), perform all the studio 'jiggery-pokery', dabble a little in the visual arts and do the odd bit of 'creative writing'.
We've been making music together for a long time now . . . back when 4 track cassettes were the cutting edge . . .
No, but would love to get a live band together sometime to perform our songs.
The Beatles, The Who, Be Bop Deluxe, Bill Nelson, R & B, Blues, Rock and every pop song I've ever heard.
My main electric guitar is a lovely red, Parker Fly Deluxe (1999) closely followed by a red Yamaha MSG Deluxe. Yamaha APX 4-A Electro-Acoustic guitar, Crafter 'Cruiser' bass guitar, Rickenbacker bass guitar, Yamaha PSR 275 kekboard, Line 6 POD 2.0, Zoom RT 123 Drum machine. I record onto Adobe Audition 1.5 (formerly Cool Edit )through my PC.
Let your Vision be your Mission . . .
