Bio:
I'm an English musician, song-writer and singer who mostly produces pop/rock work.

I was born and raised in the good old Black Country but have lived in the Warwickshire town of Nuneaton since my mid-twenties.

My primary instrument is piano, but am also familiar with Violin and Pipe Organ. I spent much of my childhood playing in ensembles and orchestras but in adult life I've generally worked strictly as a solo artist. I'm an avid user and proponent of technology in music creation and as a result, all parts in my recordings are generally played or programmed by me, including the octopus drummer of course...

I generally go for strong production values, and many of my songs have relatively complex and rich arrangements. I also like to use interweaving and multi tracked vocals.

Lyrically, I try to break away from the established rock cliches. I go for subjects such as psychology, theology and social concerns.

I love music and don't know where I'd be without it.
