Me and my guitar

A trusty Yamaha Eterna.

I live in the NZ bush (forest).

Musical influences

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 influencesĀ that lead to my songs often soundingĀ  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
