Hi. I've been playing guitar for 35 years & love collaborating with people. David Ryder Prangley once told me I have "the left hand of Johnny Marr and the right hand of Eddie Van Halen". As a writer, words are also very important to me. Whether writing lyrics from scratch or editing existing lines, I'll keep at it until the song is right.
Whether it's lyric writing, full song writing, or acoustic and electric guitar playing, get in touch. Rates are flexible and dependent upon the project.
Johnny Marr was a huge influence on me when I was learning to play. His ideas that the music should always be in service of the song and lyrics, though that didn't mean the parts couldn't be incredibly interesting. The Soundcloud playlist gives a good indication of what I can doing writing and playing-wise, from intricate finger picking to full on rock out guitar.
Being a writer by trade, words are very important to me, so much care will taken over the lyrics to convey what you want them to.
I've played in many bands over the years, including The Soft Close-Ups, H Bird, Aug Stone & The Love Conspiracy, and my recording project Eiscafe. Check 'em out, they're all on Bandcamp.
Get in touch and we'll make some great music together.
