I am originally a self taught bass player (4 and 5 string) who played numerous gigs in metal and alternative rock bands while pursuing my languages degree in Paris (Witches) and later in Manchester (Mirrorball, Brotherhood of Slam). I switched to singing, acoustic/electric guitar and songwriting about 5 years ago. I currently perform a mixture of original material and covers at open mic nights in Manchester city centre while I look for backing musicians (5 string bassist and drummer). My influences vary from 80's pop to 90's alternative rock and metal with an good dose of funk and dance. My music is a groovy blend of all the above styles as well as ska and reggae with an emphasis on strong pop/rock vocal melodies -especially big choruses- and sometimes poetic, mystical lyrics.
'We're all criminals' is the first fully produced song off my next EP that will also feature some of my most 'commercial' tracks contained in my rough five minute demo 'next EP sampler' below.
