It's been a long time since I've posted anything here, almost 2 years!! In the last 2 years I have joined the band enkElination (http://enkelination.com) and also released an 'album', although I don't consider it an album since it's incomplete. The idea of the album was to get guest vocalists for most of the tracks but that was much harder than I thought and after a year of waiting, I just decided to cut a couple of tracks & make my favourite track of the lot into an instrumental and put it out with the completed songs on Dec 21st 2012. I didn't promote this lot of songs at all. Since it's not a complete album, I couldn't send to magazines and stuff. Those tracks are on spotify, I'm aiming for 10 billion spotify plays :p Soon I will be releasing an album with enkElination, fans of stuff like Nightwish will probably like it :) If I can find time and inspiration, I want to do a double EP, 1 instrumental and 1 with vocals but that may take a while.
Anyway, hope you've all been doing good \m/
I've decided to forget about trying to get facebook 'likes', instead I've decided my new goal is to get 5 million plays on Spotify. I'm currently on about 5 thousand plays so I got a long way to go but might as well aim high if I'm aiming for something.
Anyway, if you happen to have Spotify and you like my music, please play it there. http://open.spotify.com/artist/1C8gMrLdwJtq8KrfBX0HV2 Thank You very much!

I've contacted loads of stations about getting airplay so there may well be others playing my stuff also but these are the ones that I know about.
Thanks you guys
Happy 2011 everyone, I hope you all had fun and will have loads more in the coming year!
Also I wanted to say thank you to all the people that have been downloading my music from amazon & itunes. It really means a lot to me, more than you know, so thank you again.
It still amazes me, even after 15 years of making music in bands or solo projects, that people all over the world, as far as Australia, USA, Sweden & more have even heard any of my music let alone actually bought any cds or mp3s and stuff over the years. I've also had the privilege of having my music play on over 200 radio stations and a few magazine covermount cds. Sometimes, when you're aimimng for higher and greater things, it's easy to forget about those little things but I am still grateful for those little things. So once again, thank you & Happy New Year !!
My debut EP is now out on amazon & itunes

I will be releasing my debut EP for this project next weekend on 18th December 2010 via Amazon and iTunes.
The EP is called 'At The End Of All Things'. It's 4 tracks of just my instrumental stuff. These tracks were recorded at various times over the last 3 years in between other projects and stuff I've been doing. I'm pretty excited about this because, for the first time, I feel that this stuff is actually worth buying, so hopefully other people will too :)
Next year I plan to do another EP but with various guest vocalists because I'm not really an instrumental guitarist and then after that I shall be looking more seriously at joining a touing band so I can get out there and meet a few of the fans and/or getting into songwriting and composing.
Okay so be sure to search Amazon and iTunes next weekend. (see my links)
Thanks you guys
