Kevin Armstrong on SoundBetter

Kevin Armstrong is the guitarist you may never have heard of, but have most certainly heard. He has had a stellar career since the early 1980s as sidekick for David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Morrissey, Sinéad O’Connor, Prefab Sprout, Thomas Dolby and host of others. He has played with a huge range of stars from Roy Orbison to Brian Eno.

I am a super experienced guitarist who has worked with David Bowie and Iggy Pop Morrissey and hundreds of others. I have produced albums for Keziah Jones, Alien Sex Fiend. I have co-written songs with Bowie, Morrissey, Thomas Dolby, Sia, Shara Nelson (Massive Attack) I have a well equipped home studio with an HDX Protools rig, Logic skills too. I make everything from rock to funk to acoustic songs. My speciality is drums and guitar based music but not out and out pop. More on the spectrum of alternative rock but I have also made commercial soundtracks and TV tracks for many shows requiring forensic recreations of classic tracks. I have a very wide experience in the studio of programming, arrangement, production, mixing etc and I can handle backing vocals too. I'm excellent at vocal comping and guitar sounds etc and I'm a decent mixer too.
