Current musical ventures

In recent years I have been playing with a rock-blues band here on the Costa del Sol. After that amount of time I have now opted to go for somethIng new.......

Nigel Barrett Biog

I grew up on the Isle of Wight. As a child I learnt piano to grade IV, then took up the bass guitar after becoming addicted to the talents of fellow Isle of Wight bass player Mark King. I have played in a couple of live bands, but neglected my passion for music for many years and have only just recently picked up where I left off. Nowadays I am torn between the keyboard and the bass, but strive to combine the two successfully. My musical tastes and influences vary widely, from the Canadian rock trio Rush, to Scritti Politti, to Celine Dion, to The System. All have one thing in common:- lush production! I'm a huge fan of 'sound' itself - some sounds can move me to tears just by themselves, especially the modern ethereal synths out there.

I have recently been able to record my music through the purchase of a couple of bits of technology - a digital Tascam pc interface that miraculously enables me to record directly into the pc - including vocals! My weak point is my voice - I am no singer although I can almost hold a tune. If my demo's could be sung by a powerful female vocal I would be very happy.
