About Me

Hiya, I love music and write both acoustic ukulele tracks and electronic bits and bobs.

Instruments I play

Ukulele, piano, recorder (don't giggle, been playing it for over 20 years and I can ROCK OUT on it). That I don't own: crumhorns various, Glastonbury pipe, racket (they're all Renaissance instruments and are awesome), double bass (a little). Trying to learn accordion but I only have a dinky one - plus it was full of money spiders when I bought it off the market!

Software I Use

Audacity, Reaper, FL Studio

Hardware I Use

A webcam with a free microphone. Big spender!

Listening To Right Now

I've just discovered chiptune! Yippee! Whenever I feel down, I pop on some David Bowie or Smiths. I love listening to whatever my friends are writing or mixing, makes it seem like you can get a snapshot of their brains at that moment.

Learning stuff like maths, history, physics, archaeology... Not towards anything, just loads of books and stuff. Love it. Knowledge is win.
