WHO AM I?
I'm primarily a guitarist/backing vocalist [I also play bass guitar and mandolin] and currently a full-time guitar player, I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Creative Music Technology and hopefully in 2015 a Masters Degree in Creative Music Technology. I have approximately 25 years experience within various facets of the music industry as a lead guitarist and backing vocalist, playing shows from bars and clubs to venues and stadiums in the UK and mainland Europe, with original music, cover bands and corporate/ tribute shows. I am primarily influenced by Jimmy Page, Dave Gilmour, Brian Robertson/Scott Gorham, Stephen Carpenter, Dave Navarro, Steve Rothery, Steve Vai, Adam Jones, Matt Bellamy, The Edge, Dave Grohl and many more. I currently write, record and produce my own music under the band name BAD MOJO, I have another project off the blocks with a working title of 'ZERO' which will eventually involve collaborations with other musicians and songwriters. I also have an interest in writing music for TV shows, advertising and film.
In the future I aim to open a recording/rehearsal/dance studio, incorporating equipment and PA hire as well as providing services to schools and the community.
WHAT ABOUT NOW?
I am a guitarist/backing vocalist with CHOONZ, a covers duo who play 'The Greatest One-Hit-Wonders' as well as classic rock throughout the UK. Please do check us out [I will post gigs on here on confirmation] I guarantee you'll enjoy our shows!!
I am also readily available for recording session work as a guitarist or bass player [also compositional collaboration] in the genres of alternative/indie rock, pop, electronica and blues, as well as film score collaboration/creation.
I intend to finish mixing and mastering some examples of ambient/film music and will place them either on this site or https://soundcloud.com/stevenrossdean for your indulgence. Constructive criticism is well appreciated!! Just drop me a message here.
