Age 57 Born in London UK. Currently living in Essex
As a musician I'm just an old road dog
Bought my first guitar using cash from my paper round at age 12.
Spent teenage years learning every Shadows, Beatles and Led Zepplin song.
Mid 20's started learning classical guitar, self taught until decided to take exams. Grade 7 classical playing and grade 5 music theory
Started playing classical guitar and folk club venues late 20's then got invited to play lead guitar in a blues band. Knew nothing about blues guitar so chose to play bass and remained with the band for 5 years. gigging round London, Essex, Kent and Suffolk.
Early to mid 30's moved through a series of bands everything from country to rock and roll, 60's covers to rock bands, playing both bass rhythm and lead guitars.
Late 30's started to write songs and instrumentals for solo performances at acoustic and folk sessions.
Joined covers singer and worked for 10 years gigging around London and home counties.
Early 40's Started to post all my material on the web, and received an offer to join a record company Statue Records.
They wanted either an album or an EP. I had 12 songs so went with the album. The contract was a publishing deal over a years duration. My album was still on the labels books after 2 years.
I was eventually dropped in favour of newer artists
From then on I became rapidly interested in writing and recording and have gone on to write and produce in total 9 album projects. Most of which are available through this site.
I do all my own recording and production using a variety of equipment and software. I have been asked many times, why and how I do what I do, so I'm in the process of putting together an ebook explaining some of the procedures I use. Which will be available from this site
Wishing you well in whatever you do
