I am professional musician from the North Of England, currently residing in Warrington. I have studied music at Leeds College of Music, obtaining a BA and Masters in Guitar and Songwriting.
I have vast gigging experience across the UK, and have supported the likes of Old Sea Brigade, Justin Nozuka, Neon Waltz and Angelo De Augustine with various bands over the last few years.
I am currently a working session musician, having carried out many professional sessions for various artists for Producer Steven Millington (Ten CC/ Rick Astley) who calls me anytime he requires any form of guitar.
I play most genres with the exception of Djent or Death Metal, that kind of thing isn't my kind of thing.
I am also lead guitarist and songwriter in Leeds based bands Glassheads, who are signed to Doodlebox Records and are due to release a single this year.
I have joined this community primarily because my band Glassheads recently lost our vocalist, and we are on the hunt for a new vocalist to take up the reigns as our frontman and vocalist. This vocalist will be singing on our next single 'White Flag' (find audio in the music section, bare in mind it has our previous vocalist singing on it, and it is unmixed!). If anyone feels they would be up for the job, get in touch ASAP and we will have a chat, we are primarily looking for a male vocalist but a female vocalist is not out of the question. This is an amazing opportunity, and you will be joining a band which is literally ready for launch, it will be an amazing time for us, and we want the right person to be with us on this journey! We already have gigs booked, it is important that whoever it is can commit to rehearsing weekly in Leeds, therefore if you are not from Leeds, you will need to travel!
To conclude on this, I am also looking further afield for any creative musicians who would like to collaborate, and any vocalists of any gender who would like to sing some calmer music in another project that I am wishing to get started soon, that music is more atmospheric, more acousticy but with an ambient guitar approach as I am a massive fan of effects pedals and expansive textures.
If you're looking for a guitarist who's easy as hell to get on with and is prepared to travel get in touch, I've done everything from backing up singer songwriters to doing session work for a well musicals promotion CD to performing my own music to even scoring music for film. Get in touch!
