I offer my extensive experience as a creative studio musician to help out with your recordings, by adding guitars (acoustic/electric), extra vocal and sometimes bass. I can also offer songwriting input (musical and lyrical). I'm flexible and happy to discuss which combination works best in every situation.
I'm a songwriter, singer and guitarist in equal measures.
*As a session musician I have played on countless other people's records.
*As an artist, I've been in and out of record deals, management and publishing contracts over the years.
*As a songwriter, I've written hundreds of songs and offer myself as a 1:1 songwriting coach.
*As a guitarist and singer, I have worked with Zero 7, Sia, Tricky, Roger Waters and Bob Geldof, amongst many others. But what I've also been able to offer as a musician goes beyond the usual session mentality, and has thus often resulted in becoming an indispensable member of other peoples' bands. A prime example of this was my long stint with noughties outfit Zero 7, fronted by various singers such as the inimitable Sia and Jose Gonzales. I played (and co-wrote occasionally) with them for the first three albums and did all the shows/TVs etc for that period, including their sell-out show at the Hollywood Bowl, playing on Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel shows and headlining the Dance Tent at Glastonbury.
Notable songwriting credits include the following:
HOME by Zero 7 (from “When It Falls“)
SECRETS by Alice Smith (written with Sia, from “For Lovers, Dreamers and Me“)
THROW IT ALL AWAY by Zero 7 (from “The Garden“)
My last solo album release is called “The Final Man".
I also work as a producer and arranger.
