About

A Singer/Songwriter from Liverpool. Owns a home studio. One half of The Deltatones, One third of The Skin Imps. Harvey Stroud's Dad.

I record using a Focusrite Saffire PRO 14 firewire interface. This is connected to my PC which runs Cubase 7 64 bit.
All Guitars, Pianos, Basses, Vocals etc are played live.
Drum are programmed using BFD2 samples.
Synths, strings, brass etc are programmed using Cubase's Halion Symphonic.
For Piano sounds I use Steinberg The Grand 3 SE.

Acoustic guitars are played on a Yamaha APX700.
Electric guitars are normally played on my homemade strat with Seymour Duncan 'Everything Axe' pickups.
Bass Guitar is played a stock 5 string Mexican Fender Jazz bass.
For Amps sounds i use VST AMP RACK which comes with Cubase 7.

Vocals are recorded with a Rode NT-1A condenser Microphone.
Keys and Midi parts all are played on my midi keyboard m-audio oxygen 49.

These recent demos for my new solo album are just rough sketches. The finished versions will be edited, polished up, probably with many parts re-recorded and then properly eq'd and mixed.

This project is purely for my own amusement. I have no delusions of grandeur. I do not expect to get signed, famous or sell a single copy.

That said, if you do like what you hear, or even if you don't, please feel free to get in touch.

All comments, likes etc are gratefully received. You're welcome to download, share and play any of my tracks.
