I'm a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter & composer, producer & engineer, with nearly 20 years of professional experience with a diverse range of successful and iconic artists. Currently playing live with Amy Macdonald and composing/producing with Animal Tracks.
My main instrument is guitar, but I also play bass, drums and sing. I've been very lucky to have had a diverse musical background and subsequent career. All genres welcome!
Recording/performance credits include Kris Kristofferson, Roddy Hart & The Lonesome Fire, Katie Sutherland, Couriers Club, Rosanne Cash, Jack Bruce, Justin Currie (Del Amitri), Roddy Woomble (Idlewild), KT Tunstall, Eddi Reader, Ron Sexsmith, The Proclaimers, Gemma Hayes, Ricky Ross (Deacon Blue), Bryde, Kathryn Joseph, Field Music, King Creosote, Horse, Tom Baxter, Scott Hutchison (Frightened Rabbit), Craig Finn and Lisa Hannigan.
I'm also very interested in soundscape and ambient music, and have a wide range of techniques and equipment to create sonic textures. I can also offer editing/comping and drum programming.
I love to make music and collaborate with others who share that passion. Serving the song is very important to me, and is reflected in my playing as well as my equipment choices - the details are vitally important to my work, both sonically and compositionally; I strive to make every project as unique as it deserves to be, and believe in a relaxed but efficient creative environment.
Looking forward to talking through any questions you might have, and to making some amazing music together!
