Hey All, great to be here on the Mix - the best indie site of them all!
I've done my share of playing in bands over the years. Started out playing the piano at 4 years old, taught by my father, who had music coming out of every pore in his body. My first ever band was when I was 13, playing with my brother Tim and a couple of friends from the village where we grew up in the south-west of England. Trouble is my brother was 15, and he played keyboards too, and he was bigger than me, so I bought my first electric guitar and set to learning that.
Never got too good on the guitar, and when a couple of years later Tim left to join another band, I went back to the keyboards. Moved to London when I was 19, and got into a semi-pro band playing early 80s new romantic stuff, then quit my day job and joined a pro band playing jazz-funk around Europe for a year or so. Finally ended up in Edinburgh, where I picked up another day job and joined a band playing all over Scotland for the next 5 years.
Then came about 15 years of being "sensible" and making a career for myself, while I watched my brother playing on just about every major stage in the world and one or two old friends becoming household names. Finally came back to music in 2004, when I moved to France to get away from the rat-race and learn some recording techniques, although I still commute to London every week to earn my crust and keep the wheels turning.
These days I'm really just a songwriter. The years have taken their toll on the vocal chords, and they can't do what they used to, so whilst I perform all my songs on here, I would love for other people to try them too. If anyone feels like doing just that or likes what I do and would like some of my music for their words and vocals, then drop me a pm or an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Take care friends,
Peace and happiness to you all
