About Me

I learnt piano at school 100 years ago, then I tried 0pera singing with a company but it was too stressful and competitive, so now I just stick to writing which I have done all my life really, writing little tunes ever since I can remember and fiddling about on the piano and guitar. I use mixcraft and a bit of Ableton, cubase sometimes. Mixing and arranging is not my strong point as I am not too interested in the technical aspects, but I love a good melody! Yes, old school I am.
