I have played in bands all my life, you can find recent clips of me on you tube as the guitar player in the late 70s powerpop band 'The Pleasers'. Recent years with the Pleasers have included London and Tokyo dates.
As well as powerpop I play country, rockabilly, roots music including alt country and blues - acoustic and electric guitar, have written some songs and recorded demos as well as played regular gigs. More recently a good covers band 6 gigs per month. This has included a wonderful opportunity in 2013 to play guitar for a reform gig project for the 70s UK Country Rock Band Unicorn. This included intensive rehearsals and complex song arrangements and was a dream come true and an honour.
In recent years I have also dabbled with some lap steel hawaiian guitar. I can play a little dobro lap steel also. I have played ukulele too.
As well as playing electric guitar in a band, I can play solo with an acoustic and sing, or provide backing vocals also.
