I am a songwriter and visual artist.
Over the years I have extended my abilities in the studio to enable to produce more fully the range of material I write.
I have a back catalogue of over a hundred pop/rock/folk songs and also electronic/acoustic instrumentals.
In the studio I might sing a song myself, or bring in a guest vocalist if I feel the song''s style demands a different approach.
I have come to realise this defines me more as a ''songwriter'' than as a singer/songwriter - in short I write a wide range of material and not all of it is suitable for me to perform.
I also apply my production skills to other artists - between 2002/ 2004 I produced and arranged the songs of Dream Out Loud''s Mike Mosczulewski for the album ''Life in the Barrens''. This album, produced entirely through emails across three continents- is a beautiful example of how sensitive song writing and computer driven sampling can result in gorgeous pop music.
I present a weekly radio show on the arts called Arts Canvass on Bay FM 99.9 ( www.bayfm.org) and also produce documentary content for national community radio networks.I founded a multi-media ensemble called co.sonance ( www.theicesuite.com)to create a deeper musical experience and for fun I play ukulele with a collective devoted to performing original compositions on simple instruments.
