Me and my guitar
A trusty Yamaha Eterna.
I live in the NZ bush (forest).
I have been influenced by many genres: blues, reggae, pop, hard rock, hip hop, bossa nova, folk & country.
The blues harp was my first instrument and I learned much from John Mayall albums.
I love guitar yet I remain an intermediate player, useful for song writing but not performing.
Perhaps it is these diverse influences that lead to my songs often sounding unlike each other.
I play blues harp in a band for Mental Health Awareness Week each October. I am keen to record more of my material
