I write songs, both lyrically and instrumentally, for acoustic roots and folk artists. Acoustic based songs with catchy melodies and poetic lyrics.
As well as a songwriter, I also perform live gigs in folk clubs, pubs, coffee shops and busk on the London stations. My songs are trailed on live audiences and I know how to write catchy, melodic acoustic songs there are 'earworms' to a listening audience.
I can write on any topic given and can create a soundscape for any mood or 'feel'. I have written on topics like lovers and losers, war and peace, magic and mystery as well as dementia, bi-polar and the usual love songs and break up songs.
I love collaborating and the creative process of writing, editing and finally producing a great song.
