Main instrument is piano. Also enjoy Hammond. Current rig includes both. Play acoustic guitar mainly for pleasure and fairly competent. Started out playing in a blues/rock band in Germany in the late seventies. Signed by CNR records in Holland. Freelance since, including studio and live performance work with George McRae, China Crisis, Booker Newbury 111, Don McClean, Philip Walker and Angela Brown.
Enjoy improvising and BV's. I play pretty much any style required and have worked with various cover bands which demand just that. Also,if any aspiring or pro singer songwriters need a song arranged, performed and professionally recorded I can make it happen!
