About Me

Hi All

I was a semi Pro musician in U.K. and Oz covers bands for years. I've been recording my own stuff since about 1980. Started with a Tascam 8, then moved to Cool Edit Pro. I play keyboards and some guitar. My range of genres is rock, electronic, trance and some Jazz.
I got used to the sound you hear playing back-line and I like to build mixes that lean toward that.

Piano; Organ; Synths; Guitar;

Software I Use
