lightfarer / Bio

I have played in bands from rock to reggae since my school days, having been introduced to music by my dad, a big jazz listener. I was touched quite early by the complexity and inventiveness of jazz, particularly as a teenager by modern jazz, but I started listening a lot to rock bands, particularly progressive rock/fusion like Yes, Hawkwind, Pink Floyd, Gong and many other rock and other bands.

I usually play guitar or bass guitar and sometimes sing, so lightfarer is a departure for me, recording instrumental electronica and a little reggae/dub, all perfomed solo using occasional guitar and bass but mostly virtual VST synths and a Novation keyboard/synth controller. I recently got hold of a Roland drum/bass machine and a Korg Electribe EA1 synth/sequencer and I am busy programming them up so that I can take lightfarer out into live performances, though I already have 3 albums released: "The Light Album", "The Eternal Voyage" and "Strike a Light", all available at http://lightfarer.bandcamp.com and at http://www.junodownload.com/artists/lightfarer/releases/?ref=label_lightfarer and here in my ReverbNation store.
