About Me

I play a left-handed telecaster, at which point someone chimes in with "Are you left-handed?". Instrumentation includes: midi drums (on Breathe, Lullaby and Wee Mr McNaughty, but I mostly use samples) flugel horn (which is a jazz instrument, mellower than than the trumpet) and some keys. I try to find a balance of parts to support a vocal melody and tend to write chord progressions rather than riffs (being a solo artist).
