Although I started as a funk and then funk/jazz player I have played many musical styles and have performed and recorded virtually in most musical styles and genres!
I am a multi-instrumentalist, which I have performed in at pro-level too, which include folk / funk rhythm guitar and also play percussion.
I too have played in many cover bands so therefore have a good knowledge of contempary music.
I can sing too, which i have performed at professional level.
I have a good strong image and have plenty of video and TV experience.
I have also played in theatrical productions. (fringe theatre 'flashtrash'
Musically , given the choice, love to experiment and enjoy using effects where needed.
I'am easy going but still very passionate about music making.
