How much time do you have. I'm an old rocker in his mid 50s. A lawyer by day but a lover of music at heart. Played in a band called "Sirrah" in Sydney, Austalia in the early to mid 50s and just as the band started to disintegrate started writing original material. Work, marriage and kids then took centre stage until the 90s when, by accident I got involved in another band called "Mid Life Crisis".
Again started writing original material just as the band started to break up. Is there a theme emerging here? Got a chance to get a gig as a "1 man band" playing covers and have been doing it for the last 7-8 years.
A couple of years ago I found OMDs and as a result was inspired to pursue writing and recording.
Released my first CD "N.I.C" in March 2006. I am part way through my second CD, an instrumental CD and a collab CD with my old mixposure mate, Lex Zaleta. Through mixposure I was involved in a number of collabs, all of which I am proud of.
At the moment splitting my time between family, work, playing as a 1man covers band (with a few originals thrown in), playing originals in an acoustic setting in local Sydney pubs, writing and recording. In my spare time I still, despite my advanced age play competitive soccer and cricket.
Love listening to music and am always willing to give my two cents worth by way of a review. Always open for a collab if anyone's interested.
