“This is a great album, really interesting stuff”
BBC6 Music Recommends - Steve Lamacq
All in all, a professionally assembled and beautifully executed album from a man with genuine talent that cannot afford to go amiss.
Small Music Scene -  Jason Small (Glasgow)
People say that a good album or piece of music is one that you will remember for a long time. This is one of the contenders already for that end of year top ten. Marvellous!
PennyBlack Music - Dave Goodwin
I enjoy collaborations and have a great amount of skill and experience to offer, a full home studio set up with digital and analogue equipment, which covers most briefs and cues.  Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to discuss ideas or a potential collaboration.

I started to compose as soon as I could put 2 chords together on the guitar, inspired by my friends who were all playing music too. I then progressed on to using drum machines, 4 track recorders and early samplers.

I got into synthesisers and joined my first bands but it was a little later, after starting piano lessons, that I really began to understand composing through studying classical piano and music theory. At this time I was playing synths in bands of all genres, Rock, Pop, Britpop, Psyche, Shoegaze and Electronica. Due to this i achieved a great understanding and confidence from working with these styles. I also gained experience in professional studios, recording demos at EMI Publishing, releasing several singles and albums on Independent labels and experiencing the thrill of Radio 1 airplay, glowing reviews in the National music press like NME, Melody Maker and appearing in their Indie charts too.
