A couple of years ago I started writing simpler almost folk-like songs. This was a refreshing change from the complexities of the jazz music I have been writing and performing for the last ten years.

The instrumentation I chose to work with was electric and acoustic bass and guitar, piano, organ, mandolin, accordion, percussion and a string quartet (2 violins, viola and cello).

I love all kinds of music, so depending on the song, there could be hints of blues, rock, country, jazz and who knows what else lurking within my material.

Another exciting thing for me is the “open jamming” aspect of some of the music where the band gets to stretch out a little and show off their improvisational skills. This is a huge part of what I do as a musician and I’ll always look forward to the chance to create “fresh” music out of thin air in front of a live audience.
