My songwriting styles have ranged from straight ahead rock through funky indie to sweeping ballads and swing groovers. That makes the music hard to pidgeon-hole as summarised by sound engineer Ed Norman when reviewing the album ‘Are You Alive’ :
“I was most impressed – there was me expecting an album of 60’s pop, and it does indeed begin in such a summary vein…but by the end of the album I was forced to conclude that you have created a genre all of your own; I’ts got 60s pop, its got 80s vibes, its got the feel of showtunes by way of everything from Bond to Rocky Horror, and even a touch of the Arctic Monkeys thrown in for good measure!”
The latest albums formed the back bone of a storming live set which has been extremely well received.
The jazz EP ‘On My Uppers’ was released in 2012. Two Rock/Pop albums followed in 2020 ‘Don’t Mind If I Do!’ and in 2023 ‘Are You Alive’
A new album with another of my projects ‘The Touchstones’ is already recorded and will be released in 2024. A further solo album will also be released in 2024 with an EP scheduled for the early part of the year as well!
