Started out as a drummer shortly after the last ice age.
With the advent of electricity, I grew sick of being the guy who hung around with the real musicians, so decided to teach myself to write songs.
Years later, and studio hours too numerous to mention, I've reached the point where I don't suck at it.
I do what I can with the engineering side, but due to sitting half a metre from a snare drum for too many years, there's bound to be things I miss. 2.5kHz? What the fuck is 2.5kHz? Ohhhh, right....that's the area that's buried in all that tinnitus!
This is the point where most bios will pad the writer's ego, inflating self importance...which I hate, but I'm human, so here's just a bit. Spent years playing sessions, mostly for bands you've never heard of but also for a heap of adverts you probably have. Learned lots of studio craft from lots of very talented people. Studied production with a Grammy Award-winning producer/engineer for seven years.
And none of it means a hill of beans in respect to the following question: is the music good? If you think so, then little else really matters, does it?
I have two studio assistants. Both are feline, and neither of them like asparagus.
