Based in Central Scotland, I've been a Songwriter since 1996 (self produced since 2005), a Guitarist since 1985, a Vocalist since 1996, a Composer since 1997 (Instrumental since 2005) and a Demo Producer/Producer and developing Mix Engineer, currently learning Mastering. Having spent 15 or so years in bands from 1985, initially as a lead guitarist in Rock/Blues rock bands, then fronting my own 3 piece Indie Rock/Rock & Blues Rock combos, I focus now on recording at home using my DAW (Cubase) and I have secured a few Publishing Contracts along the way (10 or so) in the USA.
I have also composed for Short Films, for some brand work and have secured high profile brand work for other composers, which featured on national TV Ad campaigns. I also mentor & produce demos for up and coming Singer-Songwriters/Singers and have previously taught guitar, bass and drums, as well as mentoring young bands/artists. I play all instruments on my material and programmed/edit drums.
I am also a Photographer and Videographer and spent three years at college studying Sound & Video Production (TV Production), Music Tech & Managment and finally Information & Media Studies back in youthful early 1990's.
Musically, my niches/specialties are as folows:
1950's Rock & Roll (guitar/piano based)
1970's Acoustic, Soul, Rock, Woodstock 69, Hendrix, The Doors, Led Zep, Allman Brothers, Doobie Brothers & on
