(Currently playing solo gigs as well as acoustic guitar for the Susan Arbuckle Trio in Austin, TX)
I fell in love with the acoustic guitar at the age of 12 and to this day I write most of my songs on Tara my beloved Takamine.
You can definitely hear the drums and bass influences in my playing, which is very rhythmic and percussive in style.
I am proud to have an endorsement with Takamine who asked me to road test their CT4-DX pre-amp.
I also have an L R Baggs endorsement through their UK distributor Strings & Things and I constantly use their brilliant Venue DI.

Red Light – Songs from the Shed series
It’s Alright – Bedtime Stories
I absolutely love doing studio work.
The studio is a truly magical place to be.
I am both very proud and grateful to have been trusted by people to work on their music. I take every project very seriously and treat it with the same respect and dedication as I do my own songs.
I’m a good person to hire in studio situations because I have a very calm disposition and I’m super easy to work with.
There have been many projects where I have been asked to play 2, 3 or even 4 instruments (drums, bass, guitar and vocals). It’s been so much easier (and cheaper!) for these artists to hire one easy going musician to do the job that a group of people would do. Plus I’m used to layering instruments for my own songs, so bassist Katie can lock in with drummer Katie pretty quickly (most of the time ;).
The only thing I do have to warn you about is that being British I do drink a large amount of tea.
In Person Studio Work & Custom Tracks
I feel very honoured to have been hired by various artists to do both in studio work and also create custom tracks for their projects.
In studio work is where I arrive at the studio with all my gear (and tea) and start recording.
Custom tracks are where I record tracks for your project in my studio and Dropbox them to you (I can create custom vocal, drums, cajon, bass or acoustic guitar).
If you’d like to ask about hiring me for studio work or creating a custom track for you feel free to get in touch!
