Re my recordings...

Re my recordings, I'm just learning as I go along how to make them. I have to work alone at home with my Cubase VST, Roland MIDI keyboard 'n' stuff, working things out for myself. I realise that there are improvements to be made, but I'm getting better. There are also some older recordings here, which I hope to update with new versions in due course...

Bio

Well, I started off as a pianist/songwriter in semi-pro (then pro) Rock 'n' Roll bands, worked in musical shows & on cruise ships, and finally gravitated to being a full-time professional Piano Entertainer playing (what the Americans call) lounge music. But believe me, some of those piano bars really do rock! Nuttin' to lounge to!! I've also done several recordings over the years, some with the various rock groups I worked with and some as a solo artist.

Stuff I've done

I've done all sorts of stuff, including UK TV shows. On my first appearance on ITV's New Faces, when I performed "Have Another Drink", the judges loved it! I got to the Winners Show of this popular & influential showcase. This was a real boost for my songwriting.

Similar Artists

Elton, Billy Joel, Jerry Lee... I'm like anyone within a foot-on-the-keyboard-distance of a piano, including the McCartneys of this world.

Influences

Elvis, The Beatles, Ray Charles, Elton, Billy Joel, Jerry Lee and all those who've made hit records since 2007 BC...!! I love Chris Rea's work too - great recordings & a great voice. And now there's Mika - WOW!
