First and foremost I am a songwriter and composer...I play a little guitar, a little Bass, a little less keyboards and stretch the vocal chords to meet in the middle... a Jack of all trades master of none. Structurally the material meets the crossroads of many genres with plenty of hooks and melodies for the listener. some production and instrumentation is dated... but with the right producer/arranger and some fresh talent much of the work can be transformed. I am also into collaboration.
Although I chose to get married , have a normal job and children I have been writing on and off since the mid sixties. I am now retied and find myself going through and recording demos of original work that was started in the relative decades (I count 5). As I go through the material it is interesting to note the influences of the times. And it is for that reason that I will continue to record the demos... Particulaly the sixties stuff... Every generation since the "Baby Boomers" seems to references the music from the sixties.
I am a past president and life member of the AUSTRALIAN SONGWRITERS ASSOCIATION, and hold a diploma in Music - tution. Have a small home recording set up with a DAW and lots of toys to keep me amused.
