Played guitar and sang in groups and bands throughout the 60's - 80's, gigging most weekends. Took to songwriting when the working hours in my career as a theatre manager meant playing gigs was no longer possible. Now retired, I am heavily involved writing and producing at home.

Emma Jane from Scotland sang Love Is In The Things I Do. A duet with Julia Schmidt, We Can Be Lovers Again made the Country Traditional chart for 2 years. Performed the vocal on a track by fellow BJammer, Junior Murrell and have collaborated with CC Lamondt on several songs with her lyrics and my music. Most recently collaborated with Susan Odella on her wonderful song Falling Away.

I'm primarily a guitarist and have played a Fender Strat through various amplifiers over the years - some good, bad and indifferent. My "studio" is a small spare bedroom and getting everything in so that I could access the controls was never easy. I became interested in software simulated guitar amp sims and have now replaced my actual amplifier with TH-U sim and have finally found the sort of sounds I have been looking for. Blue 3 onwards, all recordings are amp sims. Exciting times.

This is the first time I have recorded a cover song, Kris Kristofferson's Me and Bobby McGee. It was a favourite when I played in a couple of bands many moons ago and I just enjoyed the memories. It's not a copy but it's not a song that can be changed too much either. A bit of an indulgence!

Now uploaded version three of Dark Eyed Lady. Shame I can't seem to get songs right first time! It does seem to make me concentrate my mind doing it this way because I take a break and go back again with fresh ears.
