About
I live in a remote area of South West Scotland, I have been a musician all my life, and started writing at about 15 years old. My main instrument is guitar, and my second keyboards (as opposed to Piano). I am interested in many genres of music. I am a sound engineer producer by trade, but have always worked for myself. I am a family guy, so sometimes things take few days.
