I've worked with many musicians over the years (Dave Murray-Iron Maiden, Rat Scabbies-The Dammed, Kim Wilde, Hazel O'connor, XTC, Peter Gabriel; to name a few) and toured with a few big names. Had deals with Arista/RCA/A&M/Oval/. Had great management too!(Tony Smith-Hit&Run/Marcus Russell-Ignition) Those were the days! I'm afraid I'm doing it all on my own now! So am I glad I found this site!

Latest News

My music has recently been used in the following

Oprah Winfrey Network
Diversity (arguably the biggest dance act in the world use my music to dance to)
Tony Hawk (probably the worlds most successful skateboarder uses my music in his videos)

I hope this will inspire and encourage others!

LOL - I'm always writing! I can't not write! ;-) I imagine you have the same affliction! I always have a minimum of 3 to 6 songs in the pipe line. LOL That song is on Hold with to Supervisors and I signed signed a non exclusive with a company that places sync opportunities for Feature Films - T.V. and Ad campaigns. Fingers crossed. ;-)

For years now I've targeted non-exclusive libraries as it makes sense to have the same track in 3 or 4 libraries giving it more of a chance to get picked up! But just recently I was approached by a guy that is convinced he can get my more dramatic pieces into films/commercials trailers etc. but I have to sign over the tracks exclusively so I am (reluctantly) writing new material for him. I have to admit there are very few non-exclusive libraries that get film/trailer & commercial placements! You are lucky getting the opportunity for advert placements with a non-exclusive agreement so well done finding that! You work incredibly hard so I wish you well. Keep me posted!

well the other side of the coin says exclusive can pay better and can get placed more easily because they know, no one else is gonna have access to that song! ;-) I'm not against if I know the song is gonna really be worked and pay well. We just gotta keep swinging! ;-) .

David, I'm listening to Booty Funk, ... digging it! I love those harmonica swell sounds, and the guitar parts, really cool!

Thanks Jim, you are always generous with positive feedback which always gives me a little boost! To be honest it's full of old samples I've got laying around my computer and a bit of a rush job too (bass could be funkier). I kept thinking it was a bit too repetitive but I also can see this sort of track in the background of one of those late night roulette gambling shows when they are idly chatting while they wait for punters to place bets (ha)

Hey David,
Thanks for the 5 stars for "A Day at the Country Estate". You have so much great music on your page I could spend all day there. I left a couple 5 stars myself.

Thanks Jim for positive comments on "Velvotek" I seem to enjoy playing around with these chilled and slightly off kilter urban vibes. For some reason when writing one of these I always have an image of a dark rainy night looking down on a quiet city or that scene out of Blade Runner where the humanoid/robot is sat in the rain on a roof (in the dark) waiting to die because his time was up. Yes i do like a bit of Sci-fi (I prefer the old Blade Runner to the new one though). Thanks again
