Hi, I’m a musician, song writer and producer, probably best known for my live and studio contributions, as keyboardist to Captain Sensible’s group in the early 1990’s. Albums I made with Captain Sensible are ‘Meathead’ and ‘Live at The Milky Way’. While at school I took classical lessons on piano but was more interested in my own style of alternative rock. In the 1980’s I formed a punk rock band with school friends, which performed some of my early songs. I was then recruited to what became the heavy rock group Stone Cold. The group performed original material in the style of Deep Purple and Frank Zapper, with myself on Hammond Organ and vintage synthesises, we played the south of England from Stonehenge benefits at the Sir George Robey, (Club Dog) to the Treworgey festival.
While studying Music and Economics at Derby University, I joined Captain Sensible to tour and record. I went on to joined the environmental campaign site to save Derbyshire’s Nine Ladies Stone Circle from quarrying, which led on to the creation of a woodland recording studio in south west Scotland, run by home made wind and solar energy. This is where I wrote and produced the ‘Incredible New Improved Aliens’ E.P.
Originally from West Sussex, I’m now based in Scotland. I have also performed with Nick May’s orchestral rock group ‘Whimwise’ and with ‘Pyramids of Snafu’ working with the Mandala Stage at Glastonbury Festival’s Green Futures Field.
My latest album MICROWAVE PANTS released through Flicknife Records is available now on digital release throughout the cosmos and beyond.
