Producer of electronic, ambient and experimental music from the south coast of England.
Born in 1972 and growing up in the south of England during the electronica-rich, synth-pop Eighties, and inspired by the likes of Jarre, Tangerine Dream and Vangelis, he quickly became adept at studying and reverse-engineering his favourite electronic tracks, so that he could later emulate them, leading to basic understandings of musical theories and production.
He continued to gain experience, becoming a keyboardist for a few live-performing bands during his early years, whom he helped produce original tracks, before moving on to solo ambient/experimental work.
Although entirely self-taught, he feels the skills he has developed allow him to improvise more freely and emotionally, without the constraints normally inherited by traditional training.
Sparked by the emergence and fast growing online music community, that offer a much easier way to reach listeners, he reinvented himself under the alias of State Azure, finally releasing his first album 'Outlines' in December 2011.
Thanks for listening and leaving your comments/feedback, it's very much appreciated and really helps to keep me motivated and pushing forward.
