Guitarist, musician, composer and collector of small rubber animals. Played on lots of records, TV documentaries, a few films and toured the world. If you have any questions or want to talk about a session/project or writing, then please get in touch by email below. I will do my very best to get back to you ASAP.

ABOUT

I’m a UK based guitar player and over the years I have recorded/played in a wide range of styles from Pop/Funk/Jazz to Prog Rock/Dance/Folk. People I’ve worked with on gigs/TV/writing and recordings include: Howard Jones, Fish, Ute Lemper, The Freemasons, Phats and Small, Derek B, The Lighthouse Family, Gota Yashiki, Eric Stewart, Peter Collins, Dave Stewart, Lifesigns, Nena, Steven Wilson, Tracey Ullman, Julie Zenatti, Pilot, The Young Ones (BBC), Chris Kimsey, John Otway, Sugababes, David McAlmont (Fingersnap), Pam Sheyne, Calum Malcolm, Roger Daltrey, Nigel Pegrum, Steve Forward, Dawn French (Ch4) and many more as well as library music albums. TV documentaries include BBC ‘Wildlife on One’ episodes with composer Stephen Faux, Discovery Channel and I’ve worked on several film scores with DJs Andy Hunter/Robbie Bronnimann. In between sessions/albums, there’s been countless gigs/festivals/tours around the world mainly with Fish and Howard Jones. I’ve got to play some amazing venues, worked with great artists/musicians/bands, met some wonderful people and made many friends along the way. Occasionally I record under the name ‘the itch’.
Like all musicians nowadays, I have my own studio space (The Bolt Hole) using Logic and Ableton for writing and recording combined with a mixture of analogue and software amps/pedals/keyboard’s/etc.. Remote sessions are not a problem in this age of Skype, Facetime and file sharing. If your a singer/songwriter looking for some help with writing/arrangements/recording/production or just need some guitar work, please get in touch as I’m always up for a project or session. When not working as a musician, you will often find me wandering around with a Fuji camera taking street pics.
