. Guitar/bass/keyboards/drums player, particularly slide-based delta blues guitar playing. Do own recording, arranging, synthesizer programming etc though not great at mastering. I mostly make far-out music that merges genres without being too obviously any particular one. Deep, unusual but tuneful stuff. Always looking to collaborate with anyone who thinks they can add something good (any instrument or sound)to what I do, or vice versa.
Instruments I play
Guitar (classical, resonator, electric, fingerstyle and with pick), bass (electric, not double), keyboards (poorly, I mostly program them)and drums (rarely, I mostly program them.
Software I Use
Mostly Reason 5 running alongside Cubase SL3. Not many plugins but plan to use more.
Hardware I Use
Not much - just guitar effects and preamp, which the bass also goes through. Have hardware Korg Z1 synth but really only use it as a controller keyboard these days. All synth sounds for years now have come from Propellerheads' Reason.

My Music Sounds Like
Electronic and acoustic, heavily processed but also a bit raw and messy chilled out but also energetic complex, multi-layered and heavily detailed solid groove-based music. Mixes a variety of electronica,ambient, funk, rock, metal, grunge, jazz and blues into something some people think is unique. Chilled out vibe through most tracks, which are long, instrumental, constantly progressing and usually very melodic.
