I have 20+ years experience as a musician. I play mainly guitar and bass, but I have my own studio and am a trained engineer and producer. My main project is One Week of Days, which is a group that I have with my wife Jan. Before that I played bass in Kaydee, when we were signed with EMI records.
some examples of my work - I co-produce and play all instruments on these tracks as well as the engineering and mixing.
My day job is as a web designer and I work in media and marketing.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
