Bio: I make what I like to think of as 'beat-driven folk collages', a collection of noises from instruments and everyday items I find around me.
Using mainly folk-based acoustic guitar lines recorded and then chopped, twisted and layered amongst a backdrop of found-sound percussion with the ocassional bit of singing thrown in for good measure.
I like to include the noises that occur around me everyday which often are ignored in terms of songwriting (the humble zippo lighter, keys and creaking door finally get their chance to shine in the world of music!)

Last year I released 'Time Doesn't Exist, Clocks Do' via US digital label Absent Fever, for which I received praise from NPR's David Dye on World Cafe: Next, as well as being featured several times on BBC 6 Music.
In early 2012 I released 'Old Hands EP', again through Absent Fever.
