Bass/Synth player - new to the writing game. Stuck in a time warp due to influences (80's) and old kit (Korg Trinity etc). My songs on here are not the finished article but purely a tool to put them out there for other people to record - ie. demo's - the dream is to have a hit single as a writer. I am striving to write a big ballad that the likes of Christina Aguilera would record, but also enjoy trashy pop songs that are catchy (and rubbish according to musical snobs!) and could be commercially viable in europe (less likely in the US). I also strive to write something that artists like Rihanna could record.

In recent times I have re-discovered my love for the saxaphone:- my father played sax and I have tried to emulate how real sax players play when putting together a tune on my synth at home. Purists will hate the artificial sax sound, but I am really enjoying getting the tunes together. Besides I am working with real sax players to get my tunes re-recorded with the real deal!


Hi Nigel, Nice to see you again. Thank you so much for the review on "Journey Back". A top score from you is not easy to achieve as you're pretty tough on reviews... in fact I am the same way.. I write my comments as the song plays. As you know now yes the drums are live, percussion everything is live. I recorded, mixed and produced the track and it is the instrumental to "generations" both are on my 2010!! Release "Songs from the Womb". Super big thank you, I am glad you heard all the cool elements in that song, I really captured avibe. It's in 6/4 time (some people feel 12/8) and the groove is challenging. I did edit it to put the phases together the way they are. Much love, hope you are well.
