I started playing guitar live at the age of 16 – which was a long time ago. I’ve played all sorts of gigs, from bars and clubs, to churches and concert halls. And, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to learn from some great guitarists like Jim Kelly, Carl Orr, Mal Eastick and Tommy Emmanuel. as well as completing three certificates through BerkleeMusic (Master Certificates in both Guitar and Arranging and a Specialist Certificate in Orchestrating and Producing Music for Films and Games .
But, my real passion has always been studio work. I started on tape at the age of 18, first bouncing on two consumer tape decks, before moving to 4 and then 8 track machines. I migrated to digital multitrack in 1999, then to computer recording with Logic Pro in 2004, which was the same year I came back to music full-time.
At the moment, I’m working on You Can’t Deny What’s Inside, a new album of original music, due for release mid-2013. The album combines my longstanding passion for Jazz, with elements of Rock, alt-Country and folk.
Many of the tracks were originally written and conceived while travelling in Oaxaca, in 2011, where the cover art was shot. The album was recored at The Sugar Shack, in Singapore, between February and May of this year.
