RECORD / MUSIC PRODUCER /PRODUCER

About Me

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.

Here?s my story sad but true? I think it was sometime in June 1970 when I found myself backpacking in London. I was 19 and had a crazy idea that I could get a foot in the door in the music business. I only wanted to knock on one door? Northern Songs 71-75 New Oxford street. The address was for Dick James Music Limited. Luck was on my side the girl at the front desk made an appointment to see a A&R person some days later. The interview was taken by a young 18 year old who introduced himself as Stuart Epps. I think he thought I was American (as did the receptionist)? I think James Taylor had walked in off the street sometime in the past year? anyhow Stuart was enthusiastic and proceeded to play my song reel. It was a jumbled up mess of tracks going forward and tracks sounding backwards all at the same time? Feeling my frustrations Stuart went into his office and came back with a reel of a demo he said was of a singer that DJM were going to bankroll him to the top. The song he played me was a simple demo of Elton John playing piano and singing Your Song I feel privileged that I was one of a few outsiders that have heard the original demo of Your Song. Stuart gave me his card and suggested that I get two or three songs recorded at a studio he said and asked me to come back. Trains, boats and planes got in the way and I never got back to Stuart. It's only taken 45 years for the record here are some of the songs Link www.beinvolved.com.au/telstraroadtodiscovery/profile/iDOMUSIC

Stuart Epps all round good guy?
