About

I'm a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist who works in the UK. Main instruments are piano, guitar, accordion, hammer dulcimer, vibes, marimbas, drums, a little cello and trombone. I love experimenting with most styles as long as there is a song structure, lyrics and melody. So you'll find me dabbling in electro, new wave, disco, acoustic, indie, rock 'n' roll, jazz, classical, cinematic, soundtracks, torch songs, chanson. I'm a crooner for the 21st century, so most songs I write have my particular vocal styling. I love the epic ballads of the 50's and 60's by Scott Walker, Mel Torme, Johnnie Ray, Jack Jones, Frank Sinatra, Elvis, Dusty Springfield, but as a child of the late 70's early 80's I was influenced by punk, new wave, indie and alternative music, with the likes of Siouxsie, Blondie, Talking Heads, Cure, Soft Cell, Associates, Smiths, Kirsty MacColl and hundreds more I could mention. So basically with me, you get a very strange hybrid of all those elements and influences, even I don't know which direction or style I'm going to try out for each new track, although I'm really enjoying doing a kind of melodic electronica, with cinematic overtones, which is a good setting for my voice hopefully. Any questions, or offers of collaboration then please get in touch. Always looking for exciting projects to get involved in.
