Four years ago, after my previous band imploded amidst arguments about Twitter, beer and submarines, I grabbed a dodgy old keyboard, a couple of guitars, a broken computer and whatever else was lying around in the hope that I could create a few tunes.

I didn’t find it easy to be honest. After being in a band for so long, it felt strange trying to write stuff by myself but eventually things started to come together and I created my very first track, ‘Horizon’, an electronic instrumental which I’m proud to say is still quite popular.

Since then I haven’t really stopped. I have now created 39 tracks, all of which can be heard on Soundcloud, although many of these can also be heard on Musicoin or can be downloaded for a few pence from iTunes and all the usual places.

I love punk. I love synth music. I love the 80s and 90s and so much more. I guess this can be seen in the music that I have produced over the last couple of years, as I have wandered between electronica and punk, from dance to disco, from soft ambient tracks to dark, dirty slices of alternative rock.

I’m not one of those lucky or talented people who hear ideas in their sleep. With me, it’s all about finding the time to write a tune, picking an instrument to play and seeing what happens. I never plan what I am going to do. And often this fails quite spectacularly but to me that is all part of this fun musical ride that I am on.

A few months back I stepped out of my comfort zone, took a deep breath and started collaborating with other artists including Yellow-Belly, BetaPSI, Replicant Theory, Skyline Tigers and Sean McMillan. Viz and I also have a collaboration in the pipeline and I am about to release a re-working of a lovely song by a well-known Soundcloud artist which also involved Skyline Tigers and two of my mates from my old band.

I am so proud of what I have achieved over the last four years on my very limited budget and so humbled by the support I have been given. Please give a few of my tracks a spin and get in touch, via Soundcloud, email or Twitter. I have made so many amazing friends and contacts since starting out on this musical adventure and long may it continue.

After working with some very talented artists recently, I guess I needed to prove to myself that I could still work alone & write new things. Hence, 'Red Zero', which is not exactly house, nor dance, nor pop. In fact, I have no idea what it is but I hope you like it and play it LOUD!
